FCC Delays LPFM Filing Window and Extends FM Translator and LPFM Minor Modification Filing Freeze

Posted on October 31st, 2023 by

The FCC’s Media Bureau has announced revised dates for the LPFM filing window that was originally scheduled for November 1-8, 2023.  The new window dates are December 6-13, 2023.

The almost five week delay means that the filing freeze on FM translator and LPFM minor modification applications has also been extended, and will now end when the filing window closes at 6 pm EST on December 13, 2023.

The filing window delay stems from a request by a group of low power FM advocates that the date-change would enable more participation and also accommodate other regulatory deadlines set to occur near or during the originally scheduled window dates.
