First TV Repack Transition Progress Quarterly Report Due October 10th

Posted on September 28th, 2017 by

All repacked TV and Class A stations, and those that voluntarily changed from the UHF to VHF band, have yet another quarterly report to add to their to-do list. The FCC had previously announced but recently issued a notice reminding those stations to file the transition progress reports no later than October 10, 2017. Stations will have to file this quarterly report during the 10 days following the end of each calendar quarter until construction of post-auction facilities is completed.

The report asks for status updates on a variety of issues related to a station’s channel change, including tower modifications, equipment purchases, installation plans, complications encountered and permitting issues. Station engineers familiar with transition progress will be best suited to complete this report each quarter.
