FM Translators For AM Stations On FCC Meeting Agenda
June 15, 2009 at 5:08 AM (PT)
Look for the FCC to release a Report and Order on rule changes that would officially allow AM stations to use FM translators to fill in service within their coverage areas. The Commission has placed the item on its tentative JULY 2nd open meeting agenda.
AM stations are presently able to use FM translators as rebroadcasters under Special Temporary Authority, but the rule has yet to be officially codified.
