The Media Bureau's Audio Division received 1,282 applications for new NCE FM stations during the November 2021 Non-Commercial Educational Full Power FM filing window. The FCC has reviewed the applications to identify singletons (applications that are not mutually exclusive (MX) with
any other application filed in the window, and can be accepted for filing), singletons with
acceptability defects, and mutually exclusive groups of applications. 75 applications have been dismissed due to technical deficiency. The applications can be resubmitted for grant if a curative amendment is submitted concurrent with a Petition for Reconsideration.
