[Translator Reform] Fill-ins: How would a reserved band fill-in proposal qualify?

Select FAQ Category:

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

The translator's 60 dBu service contour must be in a location where there is only one or two fullservice NCE services. This assures that the fill-in translator would be used more likely for its intended purpose. In this case, the fill-in translator contour (blue) is fully inside the primary station's contour (red) and while there are three other NCE stations nearby, only two of them overlap the fill-in translator and in no cases, in a manner where three NCE services would exist at any location within the fill-in contour.
