FCC upholds dismissal of LPFM applicant denied for pirate operations.

The FCC has issued a Memorandum Opinion and Order which denies the Application for Review that was filed by WKMJ Radio Live The People Station, Inc. WKMJ applied for an LPFM construction permit during the 2013 LPFM filing window for Pinellas Park, Florida.

For the backstory, see: FCC denies LPFM application for pirate operations (opens new window)

In the Application for Review, WKMJ states that were not "afforded due process" to address the allegations of radio piracy which WKMJ contended was based on an "unsworn police report" from the Pinellas Park Police Department. In that case, the prosecutor did not seek any charges and the local criminal case was dropped. In addition, a Notice of Unauthorized Operation (NOUO) was issued by the field Enforcement Bureau of the FCC stating that the party to the application was engaging in activity in violation of Section 301 of the Communications Act.

FCC opens restricted FM translator filing window for non-commercial MX (2003 Window) applicants

On November 16, 2015, the FCC opened a filing window for 69 non-commercial educational (NCE) translator applications filed during the 2003 Auction 83 "Great Translator Invasion" window which remain mutually exclusive.

These 69 applicants must file a full Form 349 including section IV for Point System Factors.

The 69 applicants, divided into 31 groups will have until December 16, 2015 where they can make "minor" changes to their applications.  Any major changes, new conflicts or new mutually exclusitivity will result in dismissal with no opportunity to amend. 

MX applicants are in Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia.  Most groups are two applicants.  One group spanning Indiana and Kentucky has 4 applicants. 

Applications will be accepted first-come, first-served.  There is no application freeze for LPFM.

If mutual exclusitivity remains after December 16, 2015, a point system will be used.  7 total points are possible:
