The FCC is opening a new window in the spirit of its “expedited Auction 83 licensing initiative” which is part of the LPFM proceeding. It gives proponents of translator CPs that are not mutually exclusive to any others the chance to file for CPs in a non-auction environment.
The FCC stated, “This window is limited to timely filed proposals which are not mutually exclusive with any other applications submitted in the Auction 83 Filing Window and specify transmitter site locations which are (1) outside all Spectrum Limited markets and (2) not within 39 km of any Spectrum Limited market grid. These ‘singleton’ applications are exempt from the Commission’s auction procedures.”
The FCC requires a Form 349 for each eligible facility by 3/28/13.
