LPTV Displacement Reimbursement Expense Catalog Published

Posted on October 31st, 2018 by

In another move signaling that the FCC is close to deciding on the reimbursement procedures for LPTV stations displaced by the TV Auction repack, they have no invited comments on a catalog of expenses/costs that would be deemed “reasonable” and therefore eligible for reimbursement as a repack expense. The cost catalog is detailed, and bears some similarity to a catalog being used for full power and Class A television reimbursements.

Included in the catalog are potential displacement expense categories for FM radio stations that are displaced or whose operations are interrupted by the channel changes being made by TV stations. Comments must be filed by November 21, 2018, with reply comments due on December 6, 2018.
