Cross-Service FM Translator Auction 100 Long Form Filing Window

Posted on March 29th, 2018 by

The FCC has announced the list of Auction 100 FM translator applications that are “singletons” (not mutually exclusive with other applicants), and therefore can be granted without having to go through the auction process. That singleton list can be accessed in the excel spreadsheet available at this link.

As the FCC’s recent notice announced, all applicants on the list must file a Long Form 349 during a filing window that opens April 18, 2018 and closes May 9, 2018. Applications filed before or after the window are not acceptable and will be dismissed. The application filing fee must be submitted as well.

The long Form 349 isn’t as easy as it looks, so start early, and be sure to have your consulting engineer involved so that the information submitted meets the FCC’s requirements. In the last singleton processing window, those who filed early were the first permits granted, so if you’re in a hurry to get your permit, file on the first day.
