REC operational status (December 1, 2023, until further notice) - REC is in modified operations due to the upcoming LPFM filing window and other resource intensive projects. We are currently not accepting any incoming live telephone calls. Callers are advised to please leave a message on the voice mail. Those with questions about LPFM can visit LPFM.app to get a general explanation of the service or use the resources at RECnet.com to get more information to more detailed issues (see recnet.com/faq and recnet.com/lpfm).
At this time, we are in embargo for all services except:
The embargo is expected be lifted on December 18, 2023 or if we can determine that we have adequate resource time to handle embargoed application types. The embargo may be extended in the event of a government shutdown where the filing date for the LPFM window is extended. Thank you for your understanding.
Last minute LPFM requests: REC is receiving a deluge of last minute requests for LPFM station filings for the window. We remind last minute requesters that we have had the Show of Interest system open FOR OVER ONE YEAR and we shut it down in mid-November. So far, over 70 prospective LPFM applicants followed the proper procedure and used the tool when it was available. Now, we are receiving additional requests by email and phone. Our current stand on this is that we may or may not be able to work with you. Our clients who came through the proper channels will be handled first! At this time, if you have procrastinated and decide to send a request to REC at the last minute, we will examine each request and handle them on a stand-by basis. Priority will be given to earlier requests, to requests not needing a second-adjacent waiver and those who have provided us with complete information.
