Media Bureau Continues FM6 Update Inquiry

Comment deadline is Jan. 22; reply comments due Feb. 6.

The “Franken FM” saga continues.

The FCC’s Media Bureau has set the comment and reply comment deadlines for responses to its Dec. 4 public notice. The summary was published in the Federal Register on Dec. 23; therefore, the comment deadline is Jan. 22, and reply comments must be submitted by Feb. 6.

MB Docket No. 03-185 addresses “the operation of analog radio services by digital low-power television stations as ancillary or supplementary services.” The commission says it is seeking to “update the record” on LPTV stations’ use of TV Channel 6 spectrum just below the U.S. FM band.
