Special FM Translator Window for AM Stations Open

As announced in October 2015 in the AM Order the commission had opened a special filing window for FM translators for use with AM radio stations. This is a two part window, with the first part open now for the next six months – ending July 28, 2016. The second window will be for three months opening July 29th and closing October 31st, 2016.

The current window is for Class C and D AM licensees only. The second round in July will be for AM stations of any class. Applications are processed on a first come first serve basis. So timing is of the essence. It is important to get started immediately.
During the window periods AM stations or permittees are being given the opportunity to acquire and relocate one FM translator station in the non reserved band – 92.1 – 107.9 Mhz. The translator may be relocated up to 250 miles.

Only one application may be filed by the AM station and may only be listed as the primary input on a single translator application.


If you have an FM translator license that you would be interested in selling or have an AM station seeking an FM translator, it is imperative that you begin now. Call us or use the contact form below to get started. 903-270-1500
