REC LPFM Advisory Letter #13 - NCE Filing Window Impact to LPFM Stations on Channels 201~222 (88.1~92.3) - Encroachment and Potential Displacement

Introduction

Low Power FM (LPFM) is a secondary service.  This means that in the event that spectrum is needed by a primary full-service station, the LPFM station has no rights of protection and depending on the spectrum need, must either discontinue their currently authorized facility or may be subject to increased incoming interference.  The secondary status of the LPFM service is mandated by law in Section 5(3) of the Local Community Radio Act of 2010

Rant from Riverton: 15 years of HD Radio.. the train has left the station.. but you can still catch it!

Fifteen years ago, an amazing radio technology was first introduced.  Why do so few people know about it and why isn’t its use very widespread?  Yes, I am referring to HD Radio, which just recently celebrated its 15th anniversary.  Still, very few people (outside of the industry) actually know about it or what it does, more or less actually owns a radio to receive it.  So, what happened?

Normally, three weeks prior to the monthly open meeting of the Federal Communications Commission, the agency releases drafts of the items they will be voting on in the meeting.  These "circulation drafts" are not the exact wording of the final decisions, but they are a good sneak preview of what is to come.

REC LPFM Advisory Letter #12 - Sunset of Analog Low Power TV Channel 6 Operations and Future Protection of Digital TV Channel 6 LPTV Stations (Updated 7/16/21)

July 13, 2021 was the final day for analog low power TV (LPTV) stations. A few LPTV stations in remote Alaskan villages were given authority to continue analog service until a time when those sites can be reached to convert to digital.

This also means that the so-called “Franken FM” (or “FM6”) stations (channel 6 LPTV stations that are using their audio carrier at 87.75 MHz to operate like an FM radio station) are also supposed to shut down.

REC Networks filed Reply Comments in the Simple250 Petition for Rulemaking, RM-11909.

In the comments, REC mirrors many of the supporting comments that were filed by LPFM stations across the country and focused on how LPFM stations are connected to their community as well as dealing with the technical challenges that stations face, especially where it comes to terrain.

REC also responded to filers that made oppositions and concerns about the LP250 proposal.
