WXOW was at 50kw or so before the 7/1/06 deadline, and they're still at 50kw AFAIK and will be until shortly after 2/19/09.
WLAX hasn't done anything to up their power. The deadline has no impact on them because they have cited extreme financial distress as the reason for failing to meet deadlines. They have, however, announced plans to boost power before the end of the year.
WHLA looks the same to me, but it is possible that they boosted power and I just can't tell. They had full power capabilities for a long time, but were running at reduced power to save some $$$.
WEAU shows no interest in boosting beyond their current 500kw, which is more than enough to meet the FCC's "80%" requirement of stations not staying on their current frequency post-transition.
So other than WKBT-DT, who do you think has "goosed" power?
