New DTS LPTV Rules Becoming Effective

Posted on April 28th, 2023 by

The FCC’s Media Bureau has announced that its new distributed transmission system (DTS) rules for Class A and LPTV stations, originally adopted in early 2021, are finally becoming effective May 18, 2023.   The necessary forms for seeking DTS status will become active and usable in LMS on that date.  DTS stations use a single frequency with multiple transmitter locations to transmit broadcast signals.  A slight expansion of protected coverage areas may be possible in some instances.
