As part of the FCC’s “AM revitalization” initiative, there is a proposal to open an application filing window exclusively for AM station owners to apply for an FM translator to shore up their coverage. FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai reportedly would like to see such a window happen “no later than 2015”. It couldn’t come soon enough for some AM stations who’ve been struggling with increased interference, low power at night, or early sign-off. In anticipation of an application window, AM station owners should have their consultants determine if an FM frequency is available in their communities. I would certainly be happy to assist you – just give me a call.
