Cavell Mertz & Associates has created a search tool to help AM owners more easily find an FM translator in their market.
The company created the tool in response to the FCC’s release of its AM revitalization order.
The search tool lists all the FM translators within 250 miles of a given AM station; with approval, 250 miles is the limit that the agency would allow a translator to move in one hop under the changes.
Go to www.fccinfo.com, enter in your AM call sign, and when your station page comes up, you will have the option to run the search.
“Our hope is that the tool will be useful for those who are considering their options… and easy to use when trying to dig for further information,” company President Gary Cavell tells RBR+TVBR.
