LPFM FAQ - revised December 23, 2014

Here are some recently asked questions and other trivial bits about LPFM. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Question added on December 23, 2014

Where can I find the rule that requires LPFM stations to run a certified transmitter?
See §73.1660(a)(2) (An LPFM transmitter shall be certified for compliance with the requirements of this part following the procedures described in part 2 of the this chapter.).  Also, see §2.907 (Certification) and §2.925 (Identification of equipment).

REC position statement on a commercial LPFM service

When Rodger Skinner wrote the petition that resulted in RM-9242, one of the petitions that became a part of the Mass Media Docket 99-25 rulemaking that eventually created the LPFM service, he envisioned that LPFM would mirror the structure of Low Power TV.  This included the ability for LPFM stations to be allowed to carry commercials.
