[Translator Reform] Trafficking: Is there an exception to the anti-trafficking rule for FM translator applications that were won in an auction?

Select FAQ Category:

NOTE: This answer relates to a rule proposed by REC and does not reflect current regulations in effect:

Unless there's a statutory reason that forbids it, there are no exceptions. A translator can be won in an auction and immediately flipped. This rule is intended to suppress all profit from flipped unbuilt translators, whether fees were paid up front or not.
