02-277: REC files to eliminate the "UHF discount"
Wed, 03/03/2004 - 02:00
Comments to the FCC from REC state that a UHF TV station is a full station
In comments filed in response to an FCC public notice, REC Networks stated that the FCC should do away with it's antiquated "UHF discount" rule.
This rule allows a UHF station to be counted as a half of a station when computing ownership caps.
The UHF discount has been around for decades and it was developed to foster the growth of UHF stations in the earlier days of television.
