FCC Releases Instructions for Window for AM Stations to File for FM

According to Broadcast Law Blog, the FCC released the Public Notice setting out instructions for the upcoming window for Class C and D AM stations to file for new FM translators. The window will be open for the submission of applications from July 26 to August 2. Mutually exclusive applications filed during that window will be resolved by an auction if they cannot be resolved by settlements or engineering solutions.

According to the Blog, the notice includes a few “prohibited communications” outside of the settlement window, which means that mutually exclusive applicants can’t talk to each other except during designated settlement windows.
