LPFM Western Settlement Window Closed.  Gulf States "Soon"

The FCC has been processing Mutually Exclusive (M)X applications in three groups.  From July 10 to September 8, 248 applicants (79 MX groups) in all  Western States, except Texas and parts of Missouri, filed major amendments and time-share agreements.  Settlements and Amendments for all remaining states except Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas are being filed now, through December 8.

Applications are being processed in the order received.  If you are not ready email JohnBroomall@Yahoo.com or call 770 720-1037. No one knows where the final "Gulf Coast" Settlement Window will open.  Our guess is mid-November which means the final 90-day settlement period will not end until February 2015 to complete processing of the 2,800+ LPFM applications from 2013. Some LPFM advocates believe the final Settlement Window will not open until next year.

More than 1,350 Construction Permits have already been issued: more than in the four years following the initial 2000-01 LPFM Window.  The total number of Licensed LPFM stations 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.
