LPFM INFO SESSION
November 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
ARTxFM & Common Frequency will host a NATIONWIDE MEETING about the
upcoming LPFM application window today at 8 PM Eastern
/ 5 PM Pacific. Everyone who is curious about applying for an LPFM
frequency is welcome to attend. At this webinar, Sharon Scott, Author
of Low Power FM for Dummies and Todd Urick, Director of
Engineering at Common Frequency will be providing information about the
LPFM application process and answering any questions you may have. Zoom
The FCC will open a window for Low Power FM radio stations this December
6 – 13. During this time, nonprofit organizations, government agencies,
and tribal groups will be able to apply for FM licenses in their local
area. This is the first time in 10 years the FCC has opened an LPFM
window and it may be the last nationwide opportunity for nonprofits to
get on the FM dial.
LPFM licenses will be available in most rural areas and mid-sized
cities. Opportunities in crowded urban areas will be more limited. The
government charges no fee to apply for or to hold an LPFM license. There
is still time to establish a nonprofit organization if you do not have
one already. You can learn more on the website:
Organizations will have three years to build and finance their station.
If they decide not to move forward, they will be able to transfer their
license to another qualifying nonprofit.
If these airwaves are not claimed by community groups now, they will be
lost forever. Don’t let this valuable opportunity slip away!
