The FCC has reached a decision in the long-contested MX Group #37, which included four applicants filing to operate on 102.5 in San Francisco. During the 2013 window, five organizations including SF Indefest, San Francisco Public Press (SFPP), Outsound, San Francisco Community Radio (SFCR) to use 102.5. All four applicants claimed 5 points and therefore were all tentative selectees. A fifth applicant, Independent Arts and Media (IAM) was dismissed just prior to the MX window due to a inconsistent application. A board member appeared on more than one application.
During the MX window, Outsound and SFPP filed a time share agreement to aggregate their points. SFCR and SF Indefest also filed a similar time share agreement. After the MX window, all groups except Independent Arts and Media were 10 points thus resulting in the dismissal of IAM. Several petitions to deny and informal objections were also filed during the window.
