List of North American broadcast station classes

This is a list of broadcast station classes applicable in much of North America under international agreements between the United States and Mexico. Effective radiated height above average terrain are listed unless otherwise noted. All radio and television stations within 320 kilometers of the US-Canada or US-Mexico border must get approval by both the domestic and foreign agency; these agencies are Industry Canada/Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in Canada, the Federal Communications Commission in the US, the Federal Telecommunications Institute in Mexico. All domestic AM stations are classified as A, B, C, or D. A — clear-channel stations — 10 kW to 50 kW, 24 hours. Class A stations are only protected within a 750-mile radius of the transmitter site; the old Class I was divided into three: Class I-A, I-B and I-N. NARBA distinguished between Class I-A, which were true clear-channel stations that did not share their channel with another Class I station, Class I-B, in which a station operated with 50 kW at night but shared its channel with at least one other I-B station, requiring directional operation.

This distinction was superseded by the Rio Agreement. Most former Class I-As are omnidirectional, though some exceptions exist and some operated directional arrays. Most former Class I-Bs are directional at night, although a few are directional during days. A few former Class I-As who dropped to Class I-B while retaining their I-A facilities operate omnidirectionally during all hours. Former Class I-N stations exist only in Alaska, where they are too remote to interfere with other clear-channel stations, they are only held to Class B efficiency standards. No new Class A stations are licensed in the conterminous United States, although the FCC states it may be possible to license additional Class A stations in Alaska. B — regional stations — 250 W to 50 kW, 24 hours. Stations on the AM expanded band, 1610 kHz to 1700 kHz, are limited to 10 kW days and 1 kW nights, non-directionally. Several expanded band stations operate DA-N or DA-2 with up to 10 kW during all hours, after providing proof that such operations will not cause co- or adjacent-channel interference.

If under 250 W at night, the antenna must be efficient enough to radiate more than 140.82 mV/m at 1 km. C — local unlimited-time stations — 250 W to 1 kW, 24 hours. Class C stations that were licensed at 100 W are grandfathered. Rare Class Cs operate with directional arrays, such as KYPA and KHCB. D — current and former daytimers — Daytime 250 W to 50 kW, nighttime under 250 W or off-air. Field strength is limited to 140 mV/m at 1 km. No new class D stations are licensed, with the exception of Class B stations that are downgrading their nighttime operations to Class D; the station's daytime operation is also reclassified as Class D. If a Class D station is on the air at night, it is not protected from any co-channel interference. TIS/HAR — travelers' information stations / highway advisory radio stations — Up to 10 W transmitter output power. Stations within US national parks are licensed by NTIA and not the FCC. Unlicensed broadcasting — — 100 mW DC input to final amplifier with a 3-meter maximum length radiator, no license needed, may be measured at edge of campus for school stationsNotes: In the Western Hemisphere, medium wave AM broadcasts are on channels spaced 10 kHz apart from 530 kHz to 1700 kHz, with certain classes restricted to subsets of the available frequencies.

With few exceptions, Class A stations can be found only on the frequencies of 540 kHz, 640 to 780 kHz, 800 to 900 kHz, 940 kHz, 990 to 1140 kHz, 1160 to 1220 kHz, 1500 to 1580 kHz. The exceptions are cited in relevant international treaties. While US and Canadian Class A stations are authorized to operate at a maximum of 50,000 watts day and night, certain existing Mexican Class A stations, certain new Cuban Class A stations are authorized to operate at a higher power. Certain Mexican Class A stations are authorized to operate at less than 50,000 watts at night, if grandfathered, but may operate at up to 100,000 watts during the day. Class B and D stations can be found on any frequencies from 540 kHz to 1700 kHz except where frequencies have been reserved for Class C stations. Class C stations can be found in the lower 48 US states on the frequencies of 1230 kHz, 1240 kHz, 1340 kHz, 1400 kHz, 1450 kHz, 1490 kHz. Other countries may use other frequencies for their Class C stations. American territories in ITU region 3 with AM broadcasting stations use the 9 kHz spacing customary to the rest of the world.

All stations are class B or lower. Canada defines Class CC and LP. TIS stations can be found on any frequency from 530 kHz to 1700 kHz in the US, but may only carry non-commercial messages without music. There is a network of TISs on 1710 in New Jersey. Low-power AM stations located on a school campus are allowed to be more powerful, so long as their signal strength does not exceed 14 to 45 µV/m at a distance of 30 meters from campus. AM station classes were assigned Roman numerals from I to IV in the US, with subclasses indicated by a letter suffix. Current class A is equivalent to the old class I.

LG G7 ThinQ

The LG G7 ThinQ referred to as just LG G7, is an Android smartphone developed by LG Electronics as part of the LG G series. It was announced on May 2, 2018, after about a week of official leaks by LG, it is the second product from LG. The device serves as the successor to the 2017 LG G6; the LG G7 ThinQ utilizes a metal chassis with a glass backing, is IP68-rated for water and dust-resistance. It is available in black and silver-color finishes; the G7 features a 1440p FullVision IPS LCD display, with a diagonal size of 6.1 inches. The display uses a 19:9 aspect ratio, taller than the 18:9 displays used by the majority of smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S9; the G7 was designed with slim bezels and a notch, similar to the iPhone X, which LG calls a "second screen." Unlike Apple's implementation of the notch, the notch can be blacked out on the G7. The G7 utilizes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip with 4 GB of RAM, it is offered with 64 GB of expandable via SD card. It supports wireless charging, all models will support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.

All models in all markets will include quad Digital-to-analog converters to enhance sound output, unlike the G6, which limited the quad DAC to select Asian markets. There is a button on the side of the phone similar to Samsung's Bixby button. I. Double tapping the button launches Google Lens; the camera is a dual setup, with a primary lens and wide-angle lens, both are 16 MP. The LG G7 ThinQ LG's UX skin. On June 29, 2018 a software update introduced 4K video recording at 60 FPS. In January 2019, LG released an update to Android 9 "Pie" in South Korea; the LG G7 One was released in selected markets in late-2018 as part of the Android One program. It is visually identical to the G7 ThinQ, except the glass backing has a softer, frosted finish, as opposed to the polished appearance of the ThinQ, its hardware is downgraded from the G7 ThinQ, utilizing a Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip over the 845, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage, a 3,000 mAh battery, removing the second, wide-angle rear camera lens.

As with all Android One phones, it uses the standard Android user interface and Google apps instead of LG UX. Android 9.0 "Pie" was released for the G7 One in November 2018, followed by Android 10 in December 2019. MobileSyrup noted some regressions over the G7 ThinQ due to the differences in hardware in regards to battery life, but that the G7 One was "mostly fluid" and retained much of the ThinQ's hardware features whilst excluding LG's often-criticized user experience. Due to its positioning and launch pricing, comparisons were drawn to the OnePlus 6T, but it was argued that although the 6T had a Snapdragon 845, a larger battery and an OLED display, the G7 One did have a sharper display with HDR support, a headphone jack with a DAC, official IP certification for waterproofing. In December 2018, the G7 One was released in Japan as the LG X5 Android One. In January 2019, it was announced for South Korea as the LG Q9 One to LG U+ in a 64 GB model; the LG G7 Fit was unveiled alongside the G7 One.

St. Joseph's Cathedral, Pontianak

The St. Joseph's Cathedral called Pontianak Cathedral, is a Catholic Church located in the city of Pontianak capital of West Kalimantan province west of the island of Borneo in the Indonesia; the first church was built in 1908. Because the old church did not have enough capacity for the number of parishioners was demolished in 2011; the current structure one of the largest cathedrals in the region, was inaugurated on December 19, 2014 and formally blessed by the Catholic Church on 19 March 2015 at the Feast of St. Joseph. From the beginning until now it has been pastored by the priests of the Capuchin Order; the temple follows the Roman or Latin rite and is the mother church of the Pontianak Metropolitan Archdiocese which began as an apostolic prefecture in 1905 and was elevated to its present status in 1961 by the bull "Quod Christus" Of Pope John XXIII. It is under the pastoral responsibility of Archbishop Agustinus Agus. Roman Catholicism in Indonesia St. Joseph's Cathedral
