Now that the dust has cleared... let's look at Window 1 MX

We have reached the end of the first MX settlement window but it is not over.  There are several MX groups that are still not resolved.  Some may take months or maybe years to settle.  Let's look region by region at how things went.


RAGE INC.. has been granted their construction permit and the call sign KEGR-LP.  ALASKA REVIVAL RADIO moves to 96.9, accepted for filing and is still waiting their constuction permit.


About today's LPFM dismissals

Today, the FCC has dismissed some LPFM applications due to being non-tentative selectees. 

All of these applicants were from MX window #1 and were in groups where there was only one tentative selectee.

According to information received to REC by the FCC, if these appliants can identify an alternative channel and or location to break them out from the MX group, they may still file an amendment and a petition for reconsideration to reinstate the application, the FCC will reinstate and accept their application for filing. 

Dismissed applicants must make their decisions on or before October 8. 

REC Broadcast Services is ready to assist dismissed applicants with the amendment process.  Please call us at 1-844-REC-LPFM to get started.


A Power Boost to LPFM Should Be A Part Of A Power Boost to Class-A

In comments to the FCC on RM-11727, REC Networks has analyzed the proposal by SSR Communications to create a new Class C4 FM service in the Zone II areas (areas excluding the northeast, mid-west, mid-Atlantic, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and most of California).  The proposed Class C4 would permit Class A stations to double their power and operate at 12 kilowatts at 100 meters height above average terrain.
