I got curious one day and made the chart above. I believe it to be
accurate. The six channels listed are the "Local" channels a/k/a
Class C. 250 -1000 W, unlimited time (i.e., not "Daytimers"
There used to be 100-W stations and those are apparently grandfathered
at that power level, but if you want to start a new station -- and
really, wouldn't we all want to? -- it would have to be at least 250
W. 1000 W if you actually want listeners. :)
In AK/HI/PR/VI these are Class B channels, so 250 W to 50 kW.
There is a link at the page above to the FCC's site that has more details.
