Why do my links get bigger when I got to landscape?

I want to keep the size of my links consistent when my mobile user goes from portrait to landscape. I think I've got the settings correct, but I still see the links increase by one or two font sizes and I don't know why.

Here's the page: http://www.brucegust.com/NHBC/mobile/about.php

And here's my relevant stylesheet code:

@media screen and (max-width: 480px) {
a.submenu {
color:#1b1b1b;
font-size: 10px;
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:none;
}

a.submenu:hover {
color:#000000;
font-size: 10px;
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:underline;
}
a.submenu:visited {
color:#1b1b1b;
font-size: 10px;
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:none;
}
}

@media screen and (max-width: 320px) {
a.submenu {
color:#1b1b1b;
font-size: 10px;
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:none;
}

a.submenu:hover {
color:#000000;
font-size: 10px;
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:underline;
}
a.submenu:visited {
color:#1b1b1b;
font-size: 10px;
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:none;
}
}

What am I doing wrong or what I can I do differently?

BTW: The links that I'm referring to are the "About | Missions Statement | Beliefs | Church Staff" stuff you see at the top of the page.

Not seeing any change, except at the 1024px mark.
If a style is consistent throughout your resolutions then just set them before your queries - you don't repeat them for each screen size.

And any screen bigger than 1024px will have no styling since you only have css up to max-width 1024px.
As I said above, set all your default styling first then use media queries to change any little bits that need changing at certain resolutions.
