90-Day Period for Broadcast Applicants to Resolve Mutual Exclusivity from Incentive Auction Transition Process

Posted on May 31st, 2018 by

Commission staff completed initial processing of all applications filed by eligible full power and Class A stations for alternate channels and expanded facilities during the two windows of the post-incentive auction repacking process. Appendix A to the Public Notice released on April 30, 2018 by the Media Bureau lists all of the applications that cannot be granted due to mutual exclusivity.

The identified applicants may submit either engineering amendments to unilaterally resolve their mutual exclusivity, or settlements including negotiated engineering solutions to resolve the mutual exclusivity. The proposals must be submitted within a 90-day period, which ends July 30, 2018, and are submitted as amendments to the pending applications in LMS. The amendments must not create new mutual exclusivity or application conflicts.
