Low-power broadcasting is the concept of broadcasting at very low power and low cost, to a small community area. These stations tend to serve small towns, if not completely rural areas in the United States, largely because they cannot fit into large cities already crowded by full-power stations.
LPFM stations are not protected from interference that may be received from other classes of FM stations.
LPFM stations are available to noncommercial educational entities and public safety and transportation organizations, but are not available to individuals or for commercial operations.
LPFM stations must protect authorized radio broadcast stations on the same channel or frequency (cochannel), as well as broadcast stations on first, second, or third-adjacent channels above or below the LPFM station's frequency.
Applications for construction permits for new LPFM stations or major changes to LPFM permittees or licensees cannot be filed until the next announced application filing window period.' We cannot advise as to when the next application filing window might be.
Certain LPFM applicants who filed in either of the two 2000 windows might be eligible to file major amendments to their proposals.
No LPFM station licenses will be granted to applicants who have previously engaged in the unlicensed operation of a station in violation of Section 301 of the Communications Act of 1934.
