Society of Broadcast Engineers The Nuts and Bolts of the FCC FM Allocation Procedures
Mar 12, 2012 10:00 AM, By Erin Shipps, senior associate editor
This webinar exposes some of the history and technology behind the FCC's current FM allocation rules and procedures for non-commercial FM stations, FM translators, LPFM and full service commercial stations. The differences in the various allocation procedures of these services and the reason behind the differences are explained. Some of the advantages and flaws in the methodology are discussed, as well as some of the recent petitions to amend the procedures. This webinar provides insight into how a station can improve its coverage or move its city of license using the rules. Lastly, the role of directional antennas, which provide protections in certain directions allowing more power to be transmitted in other directions, is discussed.
