Broadcast Station Totals Pt 2!

I decided that I should have finished charting and graphing yesterdays data rather than stopping abruptly in 2005. More data establishes the trends better. I note cease tracking Low Power FM in 2004 as it did not exist before that date.Other data caveats are as follows: I am a bad typist, I am not a statistician, I have no editor and  I am highly biased. You can see the original FCC data here and are welcome to check my figures on your own time. 

I'll post graphs tomorrow. This post of the raw data is already huge as it is.
