GRASSROOTS RADIO CONFERENCE Albany, NY NEW DATES!! OCTOBER 6~9.. Save the date!
This week's FCC LPFM activity in the dismissal department includes the first LPFM forced off the air to make way for a full power station and the FCC does a little "housecleaning" while they are at it.
Study shows favorable to potential elimination of third adjacent restrictions.
The FCC has released the long awaited study of third adjacent channel interference by Low Power FM (LPFM) stations. This report was ordered by Congress as a stipulation of the Radio Broadcast Protection Act passed a couple of years ago that imposed a third adjacent channel restriction to LPFM stations in respect to full power FM stations and FM translators.
An early view of this report shows very favorable to the restoral of the third adjacent channel. REC will evaluate the report and consult with our fellow LPFM supporters.
According to reports that we have received, there will be a public comment period upcoming. We will keep everyone up to date.
FCC identifies over 4000 translator applicants that are not MX.
On 6/30, the FCC issued a public notice that identified over 4,000 applications filed during the Great Translator Invasion window of March, 2003. These applications have no other competing translator applications and should be considered singleton. These applicants are not subject to auction.
These applicants will be required to update their FCC application by 8/29/2003. Once the applicant does that, the application will be declared "accepted for filing". At that time, a 15 day public comment period will be open for petitions to Deny.
