AM-on-FM Translator Issue on FCC July Docket

Commission may soon approve a practice it already allows case-by-case

The issue of whether to allow AM stations to operate on FM translators as fill-in service in certain cases reached the tentative agenda for the Federal Communication Commission’s open meeting, July 2. RW’s Leslie Stimson reported earlier that issue appears close to a vote.

The commission has been permitting AMs to do so on a waiver basis since 2007.

Also on tap for the next public meeting is an update on the June 12 DTV transition and ongoing DTV efforts and a status report on the commission’s efforts to develop a national broadband plan.
