LPFM Radio License Application

LPFM Radio License Application | LPFM Radio | Scoop.it
Leo Ashcraft's insight:
Are we there yet? Almost! Just a few more months and the FCC will be ready to open this new filing window. Its taken about 13 years to get here, but the wait is now almost over.

If we're not there yet, Where are we? The Commission has been working on clearing a backlog of thousands of FM translators that were filed primarily by speculators in 2003. To date over 3,000 of these applications which block possible new LPFM radio stations have been dismissed! This is making a tremendous increase in available frequencies for LPFM Radio licensing! This is good news for you! If you have checked on an available LPFM frequency previously and none were available or you weren't happy with the results, chances are the situation may have changed.

The FCC is currently processing a group of 700 singleton translator applications along with a group of 639 that remained with a mutually exclusive status. Two filing windows were opened last month for technical changes to resolve many of these. Those failing to file required amendments or long forms will be dismissed soon. So much time had passed since the 2003 filing window, many had lost interest or contact with their representatives. This has resulted in many applications set to be dismissed by default. The remaining applications that continue to be tied with another applicant will now continue to auction. This will be the final step just prior to the FCC making the official announcement of the LPFM filing window later this year!

Though the window is just a short fives months away, now is the time you must get started if you wish to apply for a new Low Power FM Radio station in your community. There are several steps you need to take in preparation and this next 5 months will pass quickly. Let's get started on getting your new radio station on the air today!. As the window approaches engineering firms will be more difficult to retain and pricing will increase as a result of demand. Don't be caught off guard - get started today!

New Opportunities for LPFM

New Opportunities for LPFM | LPFM Radio | Scoop.it
Broadcasters have long considered the LPFM service as their enemy. The NAB, in particular, has fought LPFM as a mortal threat as a source of both competition and interference. But let’s put the matter in perspective.
Leo Ashcraft's insight:

As is well known by now, the FCC at last has finalized its plan to address the backlog of about 6,500 FM translator applications that still linger from a March 2003 filing window and to open a new filing opportunity for Low Power FM (“LPFM”) stations.

 

The FCC’s task was both prodded and complicated by the Local Community Radio Act of 2010 (the “LCRA”), which required that it balance translator grants against the need for preserving filing opportunities for new LPFMs. In resolving the choice between the two media, the five commissioners made it clear that the FCC overwhelmingly favors LPFM as holding a promise to expand locally originated service to narrow constituencies.

 

Broadcasters have long considered the LPFM service as their enemy. The NAB, in particular, has fought LPFM as a mortal threat as a source of both competition and interference. But let’s put the matter in perspective. Contrary to established wisdom, development of the LPFM service just might prove to benefit a wide variety of radio licensees. Broadcaster fears of lax technical oversight of LPFM and the consequent potential for creating pockets of interference may prove to be justified. Yet, broadcasters just might welcome the relief that LPFM can provide to satisfy public and Congressional pressure to devote commercially impractical levels of service to niche markets. Indeed, many radio licensees may come to openly support LPFM entrants in recognition of the local orientation they are chartered to create, the creation of a much-needed training ground for radio professionals, and the positive publicity that such support is apt to generate.

Low Power Local Radio Stations Popping Up

DAVIS, Calif. (KGO) – Thousands of old fashioned, new radio stations are about to start popping up all over your FM dial.

The low power radio stations are non-commercial and each covers a very specific community. They were just legalized by the federal government.

This October, the government will open a filing window to apply for a free low-power broadcast license on any unoccupied FM channel. The unused frequencies are mostly in rural parts of the country, but even big cities have at least one frequency available. In all, there could be 1,500 new radio stations across the country.
