FCC Issues Update on DST and PSRA/PSSA Operation
Washington - Feb 29, 2008 - Daylight-saving time commences at 2 a.m. on March 9, 2008. Certain AM stations currently operate with Presunrise Service Authorizations (PSRA) and Postsunset Service Authorizations (PSSA). Licensees with PSRAs and PSSAs located in communities that observe daylight-saving time should use the April advanced-time powers and time periods for the period between March 9, 2008, and March 31, 2008. This adjustment is necessitated by the enactment of the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005 that extended the effective period for daylight-saving time into March for the first time.
Questions about and reports of potential interference from PSRA and PSSA operation during March 2008 can be addressed to Charles Miller, Susan Crawford or Son Nguyen of the FCC's Audio Division at 202-418-2700.
