COALITION COMMENTARY
Come on NPR, where's the beef?  In the decade plus of operations, the TV6's have a better interference mitigation record than the general population of LPTV.  And the services provided to ethnic minority listening populations is significant, across the country in top-10 markets, and small rural communities.  Literally 10's of millions of listeners to multiple formats.  

From the only Spanish-language emergency broadcast during hurricanes, to key civic and education programming, and to major league soccer matches.  And Hombre Nuevo d/b/a Guadalupe Radio just submitted 1000's of listener support letters into the record.

During this decade NPR has complained a few times in the proceedings, but has never engaged the LPTV TV6 community to work out any problems, which we surmise is because they simply do not want a competitor for their independently owned local stations, which is just what LPTV TV 6, ha.

We encourage the FCC to grant a dual licenses for TV6's.  One for digital based on next gen tv, and one for the analog 87.7 FM if elected by any VHF 6, LPTV, Class-A, or full power.  A unique opportunity should be good for all on that channel.  Heck, the FCC and Congress could make some serious change by opening a window for these new dual 6's in all 210 TV DMA.  All those locally owned and operated NPR affiliates could also get into next gen TV.
