Forward Auction Application Window Opens

Deadline pushed a day by snow

WASHINGTON�The application window for wireless operators (or cable operators or anyone else) interested in bidding on reclaimed broadcast spectrum in the forward part of the incentive auction opened at�noon Jan. 27,�one day after the planned opening.

The window was delayed due to the snow-related government closings that extended through�Tuesday�(Jan. 26).

As a result, the window will be open an extra day, closing at�6 p.m.�on�Feb. 10 instead of 9.

The window for broadcaster participation is already closed.

The next big auction date following that�Feb. 10�deadline is�Feb. 29, when the FCC is holding a tutorial on the bidding and post-auction process tutorial.
