LPTV stations are permitted on a non-interfering
Using the geographic coordinates of your community, our computer will determine
the exact distance to the nearest station or assignment on each channel.
Prior to construction of any LPTV station, a FCC
Construction Permit is required. The next step following the frequency search is
to file such an application, which is submitted on FCC Form 346.This Form
includes an engineering section, which our office routinely completes along with
all associated technical exhibits, legal, financial, and programming sections.
This form is completed with the assistance of an attorney specializing in
practice before the FCC. Along with the LPTV Frequency Search results you will
receive our consulting agreement for filing your application. In our consulting
agreement we guarantee your application to be “accepted for filing with the
FCC”. Our fee for the application is $3,950.00.
During the filing window it is possible that you
have a competitor file for the same channel. This is rare with LPTV because
applications are filed on an “as needed” basis. The FCC does not open a window
for competing applications. The only way you would have a competitor was if
another entity filed for a nearby channel and overlapping coverage area during
the same filing period. If this were to occur it would be settled by a lottery
or application amendment.
The total time from tender to grant is typically
nine to twelve months.
All stations and assignments listed in the FCC files
will be considered by the program in the preparation of the study.
An engineering analysis of the results and our
recommendation will accompany the study. The study will require approximately
four (4) weeks from receipt of your authorization. To authorize a Frequency
Allocation Study of the community listed above, sign this form, retain a copy,
and return the other to us with your check for $895.00.
