This report does not reflect current or proposed rules. This is based on proposed rules that are being presented by REC to the FCC in response to the draft Report and Order on MB Docket 19-193. To address the FCC's LCRA concerns, REC has proposed a new distance table that takes a full 20 km buffer zone into consideration. This will mean for full service stations, the amount of distance necessary to protect those stations has increased by 5 to 9 km on co-channel and about 1-3 km on first-adjacent channels. If you have checked this tool in the past to inquire on an upgrade, please check again. This also addresses the FCC's concerns that previous proposals by REC for LP250 were 'too complex'.
In response to MB Docket 19-193 (and the FCC leaving out LP-250 which includes the proposal to increase the service contours of as many stations as possible from 5.6 km to 7.1 km, we did an automated study of all granted LPFM stations from both the 2000/2001 and 2013 filing windows to see if these stations can upgrade or if additional studies would need to be required. This website allows you to look up a granted LPFM station by call sign or facility ID. Again there is no guarantee that this is what may end up in an eventual Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that the FCC puts out but it shows you what we are thinking of.
