The next licensing window opportunity to apply for a full-power Non-Commercial Educational FM station construction permit begins Nov. 2, 2021, and runs until Nov. 9. This is a rare opportunity for qualified non-profit organizations to build a new full-powered FM station. If your organization is interested, now is the time to start planning.
It's important to keep in mind that full-power NCE application require more planning and engineering work than low-power FM (LPFM) applications. A limited number of open frequencies will be available, and it is an applicant's responsibility to demonstrate the viability of their proposal.
We at Common Frequency are working on a list of viable open channels in communities across the country that we will publish here.
In the meantime, if your non-profit organization is interested in the prospect, read this and contact Common Frequency if you reside in an open-frequency area.
