Upcoming opportunities for new stations

Because of various rulemaking and other activities, there should soon be some opportunities to obtain a new broadcast station.  REC has prepared a very brief overview of each opportunity.  If you wish to participate, please contact REC at 1-844-REC-LPFM (1-844-732-5736) to get started and prepared for the big day.

Low Power FM - Third Generation

Predicted to take place in late 2022 or 2023... 

New Low Power FM stations and major changes to existing LPFMs.  Stations can use any available channel in the 88.1~107.9 MHz band and must meet the requirements for LPFM stations.  

Alaska Class D Non-commercial Educational Stations

Available now on a first-come, first-served basis.  No need to wait for a filing window. 

New broadcast stations operating up to 99 watts at 30 meters HAAT.   Stations must be physically located in the state of Alaska.

A filing window for new full-service noncommercial educational FM stations operating between 88.1 and 91.9 ended on November 9, 2021.  It may not be for several years before there is another opportunity for this type of station (the previous window prior to 2021 was in 2007).
