The MAX System returns for an anticipated MX remedial filing/settlement window.
REC has been hearing information that the FCC is planning to start working on the MX (mutually exclusive) LPFM applications starting 'later this summer'.
In anticipation for any remedial windows that may open for this, REC has fixed up and reactivated MAX, the Mutual Application eXchange.
MAX is a community forum where LPFM applicants can move meet with other applicants in an attempt to reach settlement agreements by either proposing a new channel, a new location, co-location or timeshare.
At this time, we are not aware of what the FCC will allow LPFM applicants to do to remediate their applications yet. However, we would like to see as many applicants ready to go as the window may be short.
Singleton and MX information now incorporated in the LPFM Scoreboard.
Information on LPFM applicants who face no competing applications but have not been acted on yet (singletons), applicants who are short spaced to other applications (other than the March translator applications) and applicants who face competing applications from other LPFM applicants (MX or Mutually Exclusive) is now available at the LPFM Scoreboard at www.recnet.com/lpfminfo.
New functionality in the Scoreboard system replaces the quarterly Singleton list that is issued by REC.
