The translator applications that were filed during the March window have finally posted in the FCC database.
REC's search databases have been updated.
The number #1 LPFM city (in population) remains Anchorage, AK. See our Top 1000 Cities for a revised list.
The ASPEN Application Status System will now show nearby translators that were filed during this window that may encroach on LPFM applications. These applications will not cause the "properly spaced" checkmark to go to "X".
The Encroachment Report is extremely large this week. Please visit the Encroachment page and download the entire file in ZIP format, or you can view one of 3 parts.
Information about the translator window applications is now available at the FCC website.
The FCC has posted the applications that were filed during the March translator filing window. This window has been the subject of major contraversy due to the large number of applications filed by a small number of groups, many of them players in the non-commercial satellator arena.
We believe that we will have the ability to revise our database files by Thursday night 5/1/2003 (given any computer problems that may arise on our end with the addition of over 13,000 records being added to CDBS overnight).
Once again, we advise those looking for new LPFM channels to hold off until after we can update the database. We will release a news item when that happens.
