In Brockton, two AM station owners have to install long-wire antennas

sit were not part of the sale. And here we are late in the construction
season, and Nashua's WSMN-AM 1590 for all I know is no closer to
completion than it ever was.
Are long-wire antennas still allowed for AM stations (other than some
very old grandfathered operations)? To install a new one, wouldn't FCC
approval be required? Wouldn't a newly-installed long-wire antenna
produce a different directional pattern than the previous tower(s)? How
would a station deal with that?
