    First Window for New FM Translators for AM Stations to Open July 26

    The FCC released a Public Notice announcing that its window for Class C and D AM stations to file for new FM translators to rebroadcast their stations will open on July 26 . The notice does not say much more except that there will be another notice coming soon providing more details on the filing process. This notice does not say whether applications will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis starting with those filed on July 26, or if there will be a longer window during which all applications that are filed will be considered together to determine which applications are “mutually exclusive” (i.e. if they would interfere with each other so that only one can be granted). The Notice did say that the FCC will allow parties with applications that are mutually exclusive to come up with “engineering solutions” – one or both of the applicants can amend their applications to specify a new channel on which to operate to eliminate the mutual exclusivity.
