    If diaries were still in use, there might have been confusion between KLSW and KISW.

    You’re right. I don’t know home many times I’ve heard people exclaim, “Praise the Lord for that KISW!”. 🙂

    The catch: No transmitter site.

    The station was silent until February as a result of the non-renewal of their transmitter site lease. They signed back on to avoid forfeiting the License March 1st 2015. Currently operating at 625 watts from 20 meter vertical wire antenna.

    FCC Unveils Plan To Close 11 Field Offices

    In an order named, “Reorganization of the Enforcement Bureau’s Field Operations,” the FCC has revealed the 11 field offices they plan to shutter, including:

    SEATTLE
    ANCHORAGE
    BUFFALO
    DETROIT
    HOUSTON
    KANSAS CITY
    NORFOLK
    PHILADELPHIA
    SAN DIEGO
    SAN JUAN
    TAMPA

    The commission wrote, “Through this Order, we act to improve the Commission’s efficiency, effectively manage Commission resources, and align the Commission’s field enforcement activities with contemporary needs for a field enforcement presence. With its 24 field offices (‘Field’) and Equipment Development Group, the Enforcement Bureau resolves interference issues, assists with disaster recovery, and enforces technical compliance with Commission rules and the Communications Act. The current model of the Field was adopted approximately 20 years ago. Since then, technological changes and increasingly limited resources have created the need to take a fresh look at the Bureau’s Field operations. The Commission has completed a full review of the mission, processes, and organization of the Field. Our review concludes that our Field resources should be concentrated in urban areas where the need for them is greatest. This Order refocuses the Field on enforcement of our radio frequency spectrum rules and other key regulations in a high impact and cost effective manner that is better aligned with the priorities of the Commission and the Bureau as a whole.”

    The existing Enforcement Bureau field offices in ATLANTA, SAN FRANCISCO and COLUMBIA, MD, will move to FCC-owned properties nearby or in the same” metro. In ALASKA and PUERTO RICO, local contractors will be on hand, “to maintain a field presence,” and the Bureau will “periodically dispatch field agents to KANSAS CITY.”
