That is (was?) just a temporary operation under STA while they rebuild
the doghouse at tower #3:
REPLACEMENT OF THE WNAX(AM) NIGHTTIME TOWER 3 (ASR #1035332) ATU
DOGHOUSE IS SLATED TO OCCUR NOW THROUGH OCTOBER 19, 2012. THEREFORE
DURING THE DECONSTRUCTION AND RECONSTRUCTION OF THE NIGHTTIME TOWER 3
ATU DOGHOUSE, THE WNAX(AM) NIGHTTIME ARRAY WILL BE RENDERED INOPERATIVE.
DURING THIS INTERIM CONSTRUCTION PERIOD TO THE NIGHTTIME DIRECTIONAL
TOWER 3 (ASR #1035332) ATU DOGHOUSE, THIS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY
(STA) REQUESTS TEMPORARY NIGHTTIME 1.25 KW (1/4 POWER) NON-DIRECTIONAL
OPERATION FROM THE WNAX(AM) DAYTIME NON-DIRECTIONAL TOWER (ALSO
IDENTIFIED AS NIGHTTIME TOWER 1 (ASR #1035330).
WNAX remains licensed at 5 kW DA-N. No way is Saga giving up the extra
punch the night DA gives it up toward Sioux Falls.
(And no, I have no idea why Radio-Locator picked up on the October STA
app and treated it as a license.)
