About a year ago JIBGUY posted the list (below) of yet to be built AM & FM Stations in Maine.
Does anyone have any current information on these permits ?

The 650, 830, 890 and 990 and 1120 records are for "international notifications" that the FCC makes to Canada. There are no actual construction permits for real stations on those channels; they're just placeholders to keep Canada from licensing anything on those frequencies, as unlikely as that probably is.
Dan Priestly has been sliding his 1230 and 1240 around. I believe he killed off the Newport CP and is building a 1240 closer to Bangor now, or maybe a 1230.
WXME is on the air at 780 now from Monticello, ex-710.
I think the 1120 CP died unbuilt; not sure about 1530.

Many of these - most, in fact - belong to Catholic groups, and several are on the air or close to it, I think.
