FCC TO GRANT COALITION REQUEST FOR 
ONE-WEEK DELAY 
IN FILING 3RD LPTV NPRM REPLY COMMENTS
Based on a request filed by the LPTV Spectrum Rights Coalition yesterday, and officially submitted today, the FCC Media Bureau is preparing an order for a one-week delay in the filing of official reply comments into the three related Proceedings.

The Coalition cited four reasons for the request, including:

1)  There over a dozen major topics of key importance to the LPTV industry, and more than 50 key questions asked within the NPRM

 

2)  This has resulted in more than 500-pages of submitted Comments from over 60 

entities.


3)  Many, if not most of the potential entities wanting to provide Reply Comments, are small entities, which need time to understand the ramifications of the Comments and prepare responses.

 

4) This is the only time which LPTV has been and will be given to develop

commentary on its' future pre and post auction, and as such, the industry needs to fully understand and respond.

 

 

HELP THE COALITION WITH RESEARCH 
In reviewing the submitted 500 pages of original Comments, the Coalition has identified a few key areas which need substantial LPTV licensee commentary.  In order to facilitate the industry in providing the FCC with the data it needs, we have crafted a brief survey we need LPTV licensees to take asap.  You can do this anonymously if you want.  But we need this data!  

We need data from already digitally built LD and TX:
>  Top 50 market stations
>  Markets 51-100 stations
>  Markets 101-210 stations
>  Station groups
>  Translator groups

 


Please click on the above survey link, it is essential we gather and publish this content into the LPTV NPRM Reply Comments

DEFENSE FUND 

SUPPORT THE DEFENSE OF OUR INDUSTRY IN FCC FILINGS AND THE COURTS!

The Coalition is the only group with wide standing in the rule making proceedings and for the Courts on all LPTV issues. We need to make sure we take all of the actions we can to protect our collective interests, stall the auction process, and get compensation for relocation moves, technical flexibility, and a fair share of the $27 billion (now over $50 billion if you use the AWS-3 auction comps) which the FCC says the LPTV spectrum is worth!
