FAQ: If there is a pending or granted LPFM applicant who no longer wants their channel, can have that applicant/permittee request a dismissal/cancellation as a part of a settlement agreement (in order to place another MX applicant on that channel)?

Select FAQ Category:

This is a little complicated but if the application/permit is voluntarily dismissed/cancelled, then the facility is immediately removed from the database therefore making it possible for another facility to propose operation on that channel or in a manner that is not short spaced to that facility. If the application is involuntarily dismissed, then it will remain in the database for at least 45-days in anticipation of any Petitions for Reconsideration. In that case, the channel will not be available.
