Since LPFM is a
topic du jour, prospective applicants will be interested to know that the FCC
released its updated, online Low-Power
FM Channel Finder tool for public use.
The tool is designed
to provide prospective available FM channels at entered NAD 27 longitude and
latitude coordinates. The tool includes the recently waived third-adjacent
channel spacing requirements.
Lest users get TOO
excited, the FCC notes in its instructions on the page that the tool is not a
guarantor of availability of any channel produced. And as RW has reported, the
FCC is still considering modifications to LPFM regulations, including possible
second-adjacent and sub-100 W waivers.
