CCB Turnkey Assistance
Our “turnkey assistance” from preliminary planning to sign-on and legal operation of your non-commercial station includes complex FCC functions.  We are not “arm-chair advisors”  – we own and operate WPCG-LP 103.7, Canton, Georgia, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in May. Our website is GraceFMcanton.com   

            July 10 12:01am Western LPFM MX Window Opened

On July 9 the FCC issued a seven-page Public Notice announcing the opening of the long-awaited Western MX Settlement Window affecting 248 Applicants in 79 MX groups in twelve Western states. Applications are being processed in order received.  The rest of the USA will be processed in the "next several months."  If you are not ready email JohnBroomall@Yahoo.com.

No one knows the timetable except that the FCC hopes to process all 2,800+ LPFM applications from last fall "this year".  

More than 1,200 Construction Permits have already been issued; more than in the first four years following the initial 2000-01 LPFM Window.  The total number of CPs could reach 2,000.  LPFM permittees have three years to get on the air; some will never build.  Regardless, the total number of new stations will be "historic" and could double or triple the current number of Low Power FM stations.

CCB offers a wide range of services such as amendments to resolve Mutually Exclusive situations, technical and administrative changes, and time-share negotiations.  CCB can provide fund-raising advice and sells quality broadcast equipment to applicants with Construction Permits, tailored to your needs and budget.
