The FCC's Media Bureau has announced that OCTOBER 27th will be the first day that noncommercial educational FM applicants will no longer have to demonstrate that their proposed facilities will not interfere with TV channel 6 stations that have ceased analog operations.
Up until the 27th, NCE stations will still have to show that they either protect the analog channel 6 allocation or have unconditional consent for the interference from the channel 6 licensee. All applications will still be required to protect digital channel 6 stations.
