Washington - Dec 16, 2009 - The Local Community Radio Act passed the House of Representatives and now moves to the Senate. If enacted, the bill will allow new low-power commercial stations to apply for licenses.
Following the recommendations of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the House of Representatives voted to remove technical restrictions Congress placed on low-power radio in 2000.
One requirement for LPFM stations in the new bill is for LPFM stations to resolve interference to other stations when it occurs.
The Senate and House versions move to full votes in Congress....
The restrictions currently placed on LPFM stations are one step closer to being lifted....
