REC Networks - 2024 Professional Services Rate Card (FM Boosters)

This rate card is for any FM booster station.   This rate card is effective February 12, 2024.

FM Boosters for LPFM stations receive a partial subsidy from the REC advocacy and therefore have a different price point on some items.

W-9 and post-payment is available only for public sector applicants only with a purchase order. 

Market-based premiums do not apply to FM boosters.
