The modifications in the Third Report and Order and Second Order on Reconsideration in Mass Media Bureau Docker No. 92-177, establish a single protection scheme for tower building and changes near AM arrays and switches methodologies from direct measurement to "moment method" computer modeling to determine whether a new or modified tower will affect AM patterns.
