Publish date:

The Media Bureau and the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau have provided an online tutorial that provides an overview of the application filing requirements for applicants seeking a new cross-service FM translator. It’s available at the Auction 99 website.

Note that the tutorial requires Adobe Flash and runs for about 48 minutes.

The FCC cautions this “tutorial is intended as an educational supplement to the Filing Instructions Public Notice, and is not a substitute for an applicant’s review of all applicable orders, rules, policies and public notices regarding this auction and FM translator opportunity.”

Upon request, the commission also clarified “that this filing window opportunity is available to either an existing AM station licensee or, if applicable, a proposed assignee of such an AM station.”
