FCC Announces Filing Window for New FM Translators for AM Broadcasters

The FCC announces the next step in the AM revitalization efforts that began in the Commission’s 2015 First Report and Order. Starting on July 26, 2017, we will open an auction filing window to allow the licensees of Class C and D AM stations – those having the least power and/or the most limited (or nonexistent) nighttime service, and which did not participate in either of the 2016 modification windows – to file applications to establish new FM translator stations to re-transmit their signals on a full time basis.
