Want and FM Signal: FCC Announces LPFM Application “Window”

If your station is not licensed for broadcast by the FCC, there is a rare opportunity to file for an FCC application coming this October.  The FCC has announced a limited time (window) of opportunity to apply for an LPFM license which would allow you to operate with 100 watts or less of power to cover a limited area.  This is a fantastic opportunity for your station if you are not currently licensed.

To read the word from the FCC, see http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/low-power-fm-broadcast-radio-stations-lpfm.  In short, you need to file the application by 6:00 pm EDT on October 29, 2013.   CBI can help!  Join the CBI LPFM email list, which is community of people just like you who are seeking LPFM licenses and can likely point you in the right direction.  Click here to subscribe to the group.
