The Commission in September adopted changes to its rules and procedures for considering
competing applications for new noncommercial educational (NCE) FM radio stations.
It was the successful result of the Media Bureau’s introduction of a report and order titled “Reexamination of the Comparative Standards and Procedures for Licensing Noncommercial Educational Broadcast Stations and Low Power FM Stations.”
As such, the Commission is directing the Media Bureau to open a filing window for FM reserved band (Channels 201-220) applications for NCE FM new station applications.
It’s a 2021 window, with dates forthcoming. But other pertinent information is now known.
