According to the FCC database anyway, WBAL is licensed at 5kW ERP on channel 11, but has an application for 26.6kW ERP. So it appears they don't have an official Construction Permit issued for the new 26.6KW operation but as Trip indicated, they may be operating under an STA in the meantime, just not listed.
I get great OTA reception of WBAL where I live in Stafford, VA., even better than WRC whom is closer and better line-of-sight to my home.
