Advisory from REC regarding filing LMS modification applications for LPFM.
During testing of the new LMS application entry for construction permit modifications for LPFM stations, we have noticed that LMS is calculating height above average terrain incorrectly. This can result in the application being given a higher or lower HAAT than what would be appropirate. This has been reported to staff.
At this time, REC recommends that all LPFM applications for modifications filed in LMS include a screenshot of the FCC's HAAT Tool and FM Power page in order to show the correct HAAT along with a narrative that this is the correct HAAT and ERP to use. Include it as an "All Purpose" attachment.
REC will notify when this functionality is working correctly.
