Aztec Fill-in Translator Protection Proposal

Aztec Capital Partners, Inc. petition for rulemaking to afford a level of "priority" to FM translators providing a fill-in AM or FM service in respect to inteference to distant full-service FM stations.

LPFM stations would be prevented from opposing the grants of new or modified translators where the LPFM station has listeners in the 1 mV/m service contour of the translator if that translator was being used to rebroadcast an AM or HD-2 station.  The FCC has already made a letter decision that any preferential treatment to a new translator over an existing LPFM service violates the "equal in status" clause of LCRA Section 5(3).
