The FCC has announced a filing window for applications for noncommercial educational (NCE) station permits. The FCC said “the filing window will open at 12:01 am EDT on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, and close at 6:00 pm EST on November 9, 2021.” The FM broadcast window will be accessible for reserved band (88~92).
“The reserved band is the 20 channels between 88.1 and 91.9,” said Certified Broadcast Technologist Michelle Bradley. “Existing licensees may file “major” modifications in this window. Major modifications means either a change of more than 3 channels or a location where the service contour of the proposed facility does not overlap the service contour of the current one.”
The FCC reports that it will place a limit of ten applications per party in the 2021 filing window for NCE stations.
