‘Threshold Fair Distribution Analysis’ Decides 15 ‘MX’ NCE FM Permits

Specifically, it engaged in a “threshold fair distribution analysis” — a process that gives Al Shuldiner, the division chief, delegated authority on identifying the tentative (and suggested) selectee in each group.

That analysis has now concluded, and anyone that doesn’t like the results has within 30 days of March 9 to file a Petition to Deny with the FCC.
