New LPFM Singleton and MX List online

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.

Anime Hardcore Radio/Hardcore J celebrates anniversary

This is Anime Hardcore's Third and Hardcore J's Second

REC's Anime Hardcore Radio is celebrating it's third anniversary this weekend. Anime Hardcore Radio was created Memorial Day weekend of 2000 as a format change from the old "Powerpuff-Hardcore" radio service. Over the past 3 years as many as 6 different services have operated under the Anime Hardcore Radio name. Due to increased costs due to the new royalty fees that now must be paid, Anime Hardcore Radio eventually reduced to the single feed that it is today.

In celebration of it's three year aniversary, the remaining Anime Hardcore broadcast, Hardcore One has switched to Narrowband audio. This change permits us to expand our music selection as well as provide scheduled programming.

AM Query Enhancements

New functionality in REC's AM Query Tool.

A new release of AM Query has been released tonight.

The new version of AM Query will not only contain information on USA stations but on all Western Hemisphere stations listed in the FCC's database. (Obviously, we can not guarantee the accuracy of the data outside the USA, it's what the FCC feeds us.)

A new Frequency search has been added. You can enter the frequency and all stations will be displayed. The default search gives you the USA, Canada and Mexico. You can use the checkboxes to add other countries north of the Equator or add the stations south of the Equator.

Clicking on the "nighttime" box will allow you to view only the nighttime database records. This is helpful if you are trying to DX an AM station.

5/2 - Translator Window Update

We have them on-line now!

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.

5/1 Translator Window Update - Information on some So.Cal applications....

Approx. number of applications filed:
California = 1030
Arizona = 848
Nevada = 115

The CDBS master data feed has not reflected these applications yet. Therefore, our information will not reflect these new stations until it's made available.

If the FCC does not make it available on tomorrow's feed, then we will do a mid-week update the day they put the data in.

Normal updates will continue on Friday nights.
