              3/19 FCC has Granted 1,089 LPFM CPs, 14 are On-Air

Virtually all applicants that do not have a Constuction Permit and are not "Accepted for Filings" are "Mutually Exclusive" - multiple applications for the same frequency in the same area

  Petitions to Deny or Informal Oppositions are the only blocks to "Accepted"  applications becoming Construction Permits.  The FCC has completed "classifying" all the Applications - see the Scorecard to the right.  Some numbers are rounded based on conflicting data.

Based on the FCC's "fast track", all applications should either result in CP's or be Dismissed in the next few months. The total number of CPs could exceed 2,000.  Even if all new LPFM CPs are issued next year, permittees could take three years to get on the air and some will never build.  Regardless, the total number of new stations will be "historic"!

If your Application is "mutually exclusive" with other applicants the competition can be fierce.  By law, the FCC cannot use auctions to determine who gets a Non-Commercial Educational license.  Low Power FM Construction Permits are awarded based on a "Point System", technical changes (site and channel changes), voluntary time-share agreements, and, as a final resort, involuntary time-sharing between the oldest applicants with the most points.  

CCB will be offering a wide range of post-filing services such as moves to resolve Mutually Exclusive situations, technical and administrative changes, time-share negotiations, and sale of LPFM broadcast equipment to applicants who receive a Construction Permit.  

CCB offers “turnkey assistance” from preliminary planning to when you sign-on to begin broadcasting.  We handle the complex FCC functions for you.  We are not “arm-chair advisors”  – we own and operate our own Low Power station (GraceFMcanton.com).
