[Translator Reform] Fill-ins: Are existing reserved band fill-in translators grandfathered?

Select FAQ Category:

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

Yes, except in one case. If a fill-in translator files a major change application in the filing window for a reserved band channel and the application is granted, there will be no grandfathering rights on the new facility. The current facility will retain those rights until the new construction permit is covered. We are not proposing any changes to the rules for non-reserved band fill-in translators.
