99-25: REC Files Emergency Motion

An effort to put the dismissed applications back on the table.

REC has filed an "Emergency Motion To Reinstate Applications" in an effort to temporarily reverse the Commission's decision on March 17, 2003 to dismiss hundreds of LPFM applications because they were "deadlocked" and unable to file major changes because they were short spaced on the third-adjacent channel.

These applicants filed prior to the rule being changed as a result of congressional action. REC is asking to temporarily reinstate these applications so the outcome of the comments on the MITRE report as well as any subsequent congressional action and eventual rulemaking.

LPFM Third Adjacent Channel Study Released

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.
