The Commission's query pages provide extensive information about stations in a format that is far more useful to me, as a long-time broadcast CE, than trying to access that information through CDBS.

http://www.fcc.gov/mb/audio/amq.html for AM
http://www.fcc.gov/mb/audio/fmq.html for FM
http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/tv-query-broadcast-station-search for TV

In the output pick list choose the "Query" output, which is most detailed and includes CDBS links if you need them. For example, a detailed query output for WBZ provides DA parameters, as well as links to DA pattern data and an E-field pattern plot.
