Incentive Auction Developments – Payments to TV Stations Giving Up Their Spectrum Announced and buy zithromax without a prescription Bill Introduced to Provide More Funds for Repacking…

Earlier this week, we wrote about some of the upcoming dates for broadcasters in the TV incentive auction process – particularly those dealing with the repacking process. Developments continue, with the FCC yesterday issuing a Public Notice announcing that stations that relinquished their spectrum in the incentive auction will be receiving their payouts from the proceeds of the auction – with such payouts beginning immediately as they can be processed by the Treasury Department.

What’s Next for TV Stations Repacked as a Result of the Incentive Auction? – Recent Flurry of FCC Announcements

As the repacking of the TV band proceeds after the viagra canadian Incentive Auction , the FCC has issued some guidance as to what comes next for TV stations. Obviously, in the near future, TV stations that agreed to surrender their spectrum in the auction will get notice from the FCC to expect their payments from the proceeds collected from the wireless companies that purchased the repackaged surrendered TV spectrum. For stations that are remaining in operation, who last week were required to file construction permit applications for their repacking to the smaller TV band, and their estimates of the expenses that they will incur in the repacking process, the FCC published an article on its blog, here , setting out what is next. The article notes that 25 stations will be filing soon in a new window for stations that either cannot construct on the channels that they were assigned by the FCC, or need expanded facilities to replicate their existing coverage.

NAB Details Radio Stations that Could be Affected by Repacking of the TV Band

One of the lesser highlighted concerns of the repacking of the TV band into channels 36 and below following the recent incentive auction has been the impact of the repacking on radio stations . As TV stations need to shuffle channels to fit into the smaller TV band as the upper TV channels are repurposed for wireless uses, there will be many situations where there will be tower climbers and other tower work to accomplish the required TV channel changes. While this work is being done, radio stations that share the TV towers may need to reduce power or even cease operations to create a safe environment for the tower climbers. The NAB this week released a list of radio stations that share towers with repacked TV stations and thus could be affected by this upcoming construction. If they have not already done so, radio stations on this list need to coordinate with the local TV station and start planning as to how to best accommodate the repacking work while not unduly disrupting the radio station’s operations during this process that may well strain industry technical resources.

FCC’s Elimination of the Requirement that Letters From the Public be Kept in a Broadcaster’s Public Inspection File Effective Today

Today, the order eliminating the requirement that broadcasters maintain in a paper public inspection file copies of letters and emails to their stations about station operations becomes effective. While the FCC abolished the requirement back in January, one of the first deregulatory actions of the new Chairman (see our article on that decision here ), the decision did not become effective until the publication of that decision in the Federal Register, which occurred today ( here ). The delay was caused by the review of the decision by the Office of Management and Budget to ensure that it was consistent with the Paperwork Reduction Act – seemingly a self-evident proposition, but one that takes time nevertheless. For all TV stations and many radio stations that have already converted to the online public file, this effective date will remove the last paper remnant of the public inspection file.
