[Translator Reform] Caps: Why is the proposed cap 50 and 70? (for the reserved band 13 and 18)

Select FAQ Category:

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

This was consistent with the post-2003 procedures and as observed following the 2003 window, most applicants filed less than 70 applications nationally. This provision is in place to prevent massive filings and to assure that those who are granted authorizations will actually build them, therefore preserving spectrum opportunities for new and modified FM translator and LPFM stations.
