FCC Opens Filing Window For Three Noncommercial FM Allotments
August 7, 2014 at 5:04 PM (PT)
The FCC is opening a filing window for existing noncommercial educational FM new station construction permits on three allotments in the commercial portion of the FM band. The three allotments are for ASBURY, IA, GREENUP, IL, and VAN ALSTYNE, TX. The window opens AUGUST 8th and closes on SEPTEMBER 8th.
For the duration of the window, the Media Bureau has placed a freeze on the filing of applications that propose to modify the reference coordinates of any of the 3 vacant allotments, or petitions and counterproposals that propose a change in channel, class, community, or reference coordinates for the allotments or fails to protext the allotments. Minor change applications for stations within 250 km of the allotments' reference coordinates and within the third-adjacent channel or on the intermediate frequency of the allotments are also under a freeze. The freeze will automatically terminate the day after the close of the filing window.
