FCC announces updated procedures for Low Power FM window

The Federal Communications Commission has released the updated online application and procedures for the impending Low Power FM application window. The filing opportunity will open on October 15 and close at 6:00 pm EDT on October 29.

“Applicants are encouraged to access the system and prepare their applications and amendments at their earliest convenience. Applicants may begin to complete applications immediately,” the press release says. “Applicants are also encouraged to submit their applications early during the window to ensure proper submission.”

As it was explained to me by a FCC help desk guy, you go to the Commission’s Consolidated Database System, get yourself an account, then start working on FCC Form 318 (which you will see once you log in and peruse the various forms).

Hat tip: I learned about this from a Prometheus Project action alert:

Over the next four months Prometheus will help hundreds of community groups prepare their applications. We have online guides, webinars, a phone help desk, and free resources at the ready.  At every step of the way, Prometheus has the tools and tips needed to take advantage of this opportunity.

It’s a big endeavor, but Prometheus has been preparing for this day for 15 years!

With the help of our partners and you, we created this opportunity through years of organizing, coalition-building, puppet-making, pleading, protesting, lobbying, bargaining, and hula-hooping for community radio. We’re now ready for the next stage!
