DON'T MISS OUT - CPs are expiring

We are coming up on 3 years since the first LPFM grants from the 2013 window.  This means that some LPFM construction permit grants that have not been completed are in the verge of expiring.  Once they expire, they can't come back.  Many LPFM grantees have lost their granted site over the past three years and have been looking for a site while others may have a site but they are concerned whether they will be able to build their station on time.   We also understand that some grantees lack extensive funds to not only get the equipment but also the professional services that are needed to move the permit to another site, especially if a second adjacent channel waiver is needed.  

This is where REC is willing to help. 

If you represent an organization that is a grantee of a 2013 window LPFM construction permit that has already received an 18-month extension and you are within 14 to 90 days of your construction permit expiring, REC is willing to offer deeply discounted professional services with the main goal of helping to get your LPFM station on the air.   If you already have your necessary equipment (LPFM certified transmitter, antenna, EAS, etc.) and have confirmed a site to move to or you feel that you will be able to get any remaining missing equipment before the deadline and you need REC to file to move your station to a different location and/or channel, we will offer the following flat rates:

Basic Minor Move - within 5.6 km, same or adjacent (+/- 1,2,3,53,54) channel and not second adjacent channel short spaced. $200.00

If the new site/channel is second adjacent channel short spaced
OR
If an application or waiver of §73.870(a) of the rules is necessary such as a change to a non-adjacent channel and/or a reasonable move of more than 5.6km**

$300.00
If both a second adjacent channel waiver and a §73.870(a) showing is needed. $350.00

If you use REC services under this plan and you do complete construction, you will be able to file your Form 319 License to Cover using REC EZforms at no charge ($99 savings).

Terms and conditions of this offer:

  • This specific offer is limited to new LPFM stations that filed in the 2013 LPFM window that have been granted construction permits and their 18 month extension and are within 14 to 90 days from their construction permit application (3 years after grant) and they had not yet filed their license to cover.
  • Payment must be made in advance and in full using a major credit or debit card using our invoicing provider.  Checks, money orders and partial payments will not be accepted.
  • Second adjacent channel waivers under this offer are limited to non-directional antennas using either the Living Way method, lack of contour overlap or downward radiation based on standard antenna types that REC has on file.
  • Towers that require an antenna structure registration number (ASRN) but have not been yet registered are not eligible for this offer.
  • Stations located within 125 km of Mexico may require additional time due to possible international notification.  If you need to make a move, especially if it involves a channel change, you do so at your own risk.  
  • ** - moves of over 5.6 km require a waiver of the rules.  While REC has been very successful in getting moves of over 5.6 km, the FCC does have the right to deny a waiver.  Please consult with REC prior to considering a move of over 5.6 km. 
  • By using REC services, you agree that there is no refunds for any reason. This includes if the permittee is unable to complete construction on time, if the FCC delays in processing the change application or if your application is met with an informal objection or petition to deny.  There is also no refund if you decide to file your own Form 319.
  • REC only accepts requests from authorized parties.  You will need to provide the organization's FRN password in order to authenticate as an authorized representative of the organization.  REC will also need the CDBS account number and password.
  • REC will be unable to file any applications between April 1 through April 13, 2017.  
  • A "docs only" option is not available with this offer.
  • This offer is subject to cancellation at any time.  REC reserves the right to decline a request if we do not feel confident that the FCC will permit the change and that the change and subsequent construction can be completed prior to the expiration date.
