Posted on April 30th, 2021 by

The FCC has issued a Public Notice scheduling Auction 109 for July 27, 2021.  Auction 109 will determine the highest bidders and, therefore, winners of four commercial AM and 136 commercial FM construction permits.  This list of available permits can be reviewed here.

Auction 109 potential participants should study the public notice carefully, as there are numerous requirements and deadlines that are necessary for entities to qualify to participate.  An auction tutorial is available online.  The filing window for applications to file Short Form 175 and qualify for participation opened April 28 and will close at 6:00 p.m. ET on May 11, 2021.  Upfront payments for those whom the FCC determines are qualified to participate will be due no later than June 16, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. ET.  A mock auction is scheduled for July 23, 2021.

Any interested parties should also watch the auction tutorial provided by the FCC.
