Massachusetts-based Skywaves Consulting has organized two lists of FM translator applications dismissed by the FCC earlier this week for various reasons.
The FCC’s Media Bureau earlier this week began culling translator applications pending since Auction 83.
The agency needed a way to process some 6,000 applications in order to prepare for a planned low-power spectrum auction in the fall.
Some 3,000 applications have been dismissed; though the FCC has prepared a way to see those dismissals on its Consolidated Database System, Skywaves Consulting has put them in a format that’s easier to access, organized by state and by applicant.
The commission said some broadcasters failed to submit either a selection list or show that its pending FM translator applications fall within the caps; those were dismissed. So too, were applications with either no technical showings or defective applications.
