FCC Licensing Windows and State Clusters

This is the list of states and their dates of application determined in a lottery conducted by the FCC on March 27, 2000. (www.fcc.gov). Please note that the first round is almost immediate. While this is not an •overnight processê, specific attention to the planning of the venture must be taken into consideration as you fill out the application. Once the licenses are granted then each accepted organization has up to 18 months to construct their station. As you will see, just the calendar of filing windows will take some states into May of 2001. Which means many organizations will still be in an implementation phase well into 2002.
