FCC Announces Second Filing Window for Upgrades and New Channels for Repacked TV Stations – October 3 through November 2

The FCC yesterday released a Public Notice (linked here ) announcing that it will open the post-Incentive Auction “second filing window” on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 .  In this window, any repacked TV station, including stations that changed from UHF to VHF during the incentive auction and repacked Class A stations, can file an amendment to its initial construction permit application (if still pending), or a modification to its construction permit (if granted) to seek an alternate channel or expanded facilities from those specified in the April 13, 2017 Closing and Channel Reassignment Public Notice.    This follows the first window (about which we wrote here ) which allowed certain stations that could not construct on their assigned channels to seek new ones, and it precedes a future window for displaced LPTV and TV translators to seek new channels (see our articles here and here ). This window gives TV stations an opportunity to apply for a greater coverage area if such an upgrade is possible without creating interference to any other station.  The window will close at 11:59 pm EDT on Thursday, November 2, 2017 .

Additional reports will be due on the 10 th of the month following the end of each calendar quarter, with additional reports due closer to the station’s Phase Assignment and viagra for sale in canada after completing the transition.

FCC Releases Draft AM Revitalization Order to Simplify Proofs of Performance

Last week, the FCC released a draft of an order to simplify the proofing of AM stations . This order will be considered at the FCC’s September 26 meeting. While the proposals to be adopted are part of the AM Revitalization proceeding, even the Commission recognizes that these are not fundamental changes in the way that stations operate, but instead technical changes that can, hopefully, save some AM stations some money. The FCC also noted that it was removing proposals for changes in the AM main studio rules from the AM Revitalization proceeding as these changes are already being considered in the proceeding proposing to entirely eliminate the main studio rules (see our post here ).

Recordkeeping Rules for Third-Party Fundraising by Noncommercial Broadcasters to be Effective November 13, 2017

In July, we wrote about the effective date of the FCC’s new rules allowing non-CPB noncommercial stations to interrupt their normal programming to raise funds for third-party charitable and non-profit organizations (we wrote here about the decision itself), for up to 1% of their total airtime. In July, we noted that the new rules on the recordkeeping requirements about these fundraising efforts had not yet gone into effect, as they needed to be approved by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act. Yesterday’s Federal Register announced that this approval has been received, and the paperwork rules will go into effect on November 13. The new rules require on-air disclosures at the beginning and end of any fundraising appeal where the station tells its audience that the money is going to a third-party, not to the station. That announcement must be made at least hourly for longer fund-raising appeals.
