NPRM Issued for Revision of the FM Translator Interference Rules — UPDATE

Posted on May 31st, 2018 by

On May 10, 2018 the FCC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to streamline FM translator interference complaint and remediation procedures. The NPRM essentially adopts the draft notices that were released several weeks ago without significant revision. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking available here on translator interference sets out proposals for the number of listeners required to complain before an interference complaint would be processed, and suggests limiting complaints of interference to those arising within the 54 dBu contour of the full-power station complaining of the interference.
