NAB to FCC: Low-Power Report Flawed

NAB engineers have torn apart the report on LPFM done by Mitre Corp. for the FCC, and the association says in no way should the agency conclude from the report that third channel protections can be eliminated in order to squeeze more low-power stations on the FM band.
Technical flaws in the report, says NAB, include “site selection, frequency selection, receiver selection and receiver characterization.”
“The report actually demonstrates…that listeners within a full-power FM station’s protected contour will experience harmful interference from LPFM stations located on third-adjacent channels,” states the association in comments filed with the commission.
