FCC announces list of accepted third window LPFM applicants, petition to deny and minor amendment deadline

The Federal Communications Commission issued on August 16, 2001 the Notice of Acceptance of LPFM Broadcast Applications and Notification of Petitions to Deny deadline.

These are applications which were properly filed during the January 16-22, 2001 window and are not in conflict with any other application filed during these windows. Each of the applications also fully complies with LPFM station protecion requirements.

Petitions to Deny the applications listed and minor amendments to the applications must be on file with the FCC no later than the close of business on September 17, 2001.

Reason to Petition to Deny can include knowledge that the applicant has included false or inaccurate information in the LPFM application. It must be filed by someone who will be directly and substantially affected if the application is granted. Additional information about these petitions can be obtained by contacting the Microradio Implementation Project.

Amendments filed must be classified as 'minor' under the provisions of 47 C.F.R. -73.871. For further information on the amendments see the Prometheus Radio Project.

Groups of mutually exclusive (competing) applications that were properly filed during the windows and comply with FCC and statutory requirments will be announced in a subsequent Public Notice.

This round of LPFM projects are located in Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Missouri, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. For the complete listing click here.
