More Pending FM Translator Applications Dismissed

The FCC has dismissed more FM translator applications pending from Auction 83.

The agency has been working its way through thousands of the pending FM translator applications in preparation for the opening of a low-power FM application window in the fall.

Ten FM translator applications pending from Auction 83 were dismissed as defective.

The commission required applicants in or near “spectrum limited” markets to change their paperwork to show they wouldn’t preclude LPFMs from locating there as well.

These applications didn’t meet that threshold, according to the agency.
