RM-11749: FCC taking comments on REC's LP-250 proposal

The Federal Communications Commission has issued a Public Notice announcing a rulemaking number for REC's LP-250 proposal.  Comments are now being accepted between now and June 15, 2015.  

Comments can be filed through the FCC's Electronic Comment Filing System or through their simplified ECFS Express system. 

Items proposed in RM-11749 include:

  • The ability for existing LPFM stations to upgrade LP-250 based on technical availability without geographic restrictions such as those proposed in previous versions of LP-250.
  • Allowing minor moves up to 11.1 km for LP-100 stations and up to 14.1 km for LP-250 stations. 
  • Removing the contour overlap requirement for LPFM commonly-owned FM translators.
  • Add additional protections for LPFM stations in respect to FM translators.
  • Relief for the local programming requirement for LPFM stations on time share agreements.
