Continuing with the search for official government sources of current AM stations on (or off!) the air, I uncovered this gem the other day on the FCC site.
AM silent stations, silent over 2 months
This is a list of U.S. stations which are licensed but silent and off the air for at least two months. As of this writing, the count is nearly 100. And good news, the list seems to be updated regularly. Unfortunately, Canadian and Mexican stations do not appear because this information is not added to their records within the FCC database.
Additionally, this and other useful information like MW stations broadcasting in hybrid IBOC digital format can be garnered from this FCC search page.
This will be helpful information for merging into an overall database.
