Freeing music from hard disks, soulful asymmetries, Bloomfeld and Overthinker Mob

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Thu 5 Nov 2020 10:21 pm

It's a world of overabundant music and disappearing press, lockdowns and empty venues, endless production up against algorithmic listeners. But no mind: free those tracks, anyway.

Broadcast Assignments and Transfer Applications Transition to the LMS Database

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Thu 5 Nov 2020 5:08 pm

While much of the world was focused on election results, the FCC announced its transition of a few more of its applications from the CDBS database that it has used for several decades to its newer LMS database.  The FCC’s Public Notice released earlier this week announced that assignments and transfer applications (both long-form Form 314 and 315 applications and short-form applications for pro-forma changes in ownership – like changes from one legal entity to another with no real change in control – filed on Form 316) will now be available in LMS.  Form 345 for the assignment or transfer of an LPTV station or an FM or TV translator will also be moved to LMS.  This follows the move of many FM technical applications to LMS last year (see our post here) as the FCC phases out the CDBS database.  The change will take place on November 18, 2020 and all applications previously filed on these forms in CDBS will be filed in LMS as of that date, as will all related pleadings and correspondence.

FCC Announces Effective Date of Changes in LPFM and Noncommercial Application Processing

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Thu 5 Nov 2020 5:04 pm

Earlier this week, the FCC announced that changes in its processing of LPFM and Noncommercial (NCE) full-power station applications became effective on October 30.  We wrote about some of those changes here and here.  Of immediate importance is the need to include a certification of reasonable transmitter site assurance in any application for any technical change to an LPFM or an NCE station – even for minor changes in the station’s facilities.  These certifications require a statement that the applicant believes that it has a commitment for the use of the proposed transmitter site, and requires the submission of the name and telephone number of the person who provided that assurance with some identification of who they are (e.g. owner, agent, or other authorized representative.  The rule changes also require certifications that applicants have met certain holding periods for the assignment or transfer of stations that resulted from a point system award when the applications for these new stations were mutually exclusive with other applicants in a filing window.  See the FCC’s Public Notice for complete information as to how to provide this information while the appropriate LMS forms are being updated to reflect these new changes.

The FCC also released a Public Notice announcing that October 30, 2020 was the effective date for changes to LPFM technical rules.  These changes allowed LPFM stations to use directional antennas (see our article here on that change in the FCC rules). The Public Notice provides details of the forms to be used by LPFM applicants to file an application for approval for the use of a directional antenna.
