Second Window for AM Stations to Seek New FM Translators Opens on January 25

The FCC released the Public Notice outlining instructions for the final window for AM stations to get exclusive access to FM translator stations.  The window will be open January 25 through January 31. It is primarily for Class A and B AM stations that were not permitted to file in the summer’s window when Class C and D AM stations could file for new FM translators. But any AM licensee who did not file in this summer’s window, and who also did not acquire a translator last year during the period when AM licensees could acquire existing FM translators and move them up to 250 miles to rebroadcast their AM station, can also participate.
