    California LPFMs: Renew Your License Now and Save $50
 

The first twenty California Low Power FM stations to retain Christian Community Broadcasters for their Renewal will receive a $50 "early bird" discount. The six-month long, eight-step, Radio Renewal process started June 1 with a series of deadlines to follow. Radio stations that delay until August face a $1,500 FCC late filing penalty.  (California Licenses expire December 1. If not Renewed they are gone permanently.) Better to be at the beginning of the line rather than the end!

CCB has filed hundreds of Renewals for Low Power broadcasters in the past 21 years. The Renewal process today is different from eight years ago and has changed several times in the past year because of COVID and FCC database upgrades.  Once renewed, Licenses are valid for eight years. CCB's fee is the only cost for our clients (the FCC does not charge NCE stations). The current renewal cycle started in April 2019 in Washington, D.C., and is proceeding every two months West to Hawaii, ending August 1, 2022, in Delaware and Pennsylvania.

                      Rocky Mountain LPFM Renewal Update

 
There are 117 Low Power broadcasters in the FCC Radio License Group 13 (six Rocky Mountain States: AZ, ID, NV, NM, UT, WY). One hundred met the June 1 deadline; 17 did not. These procrastinators should CCB today since the FCC has not yet imposed its $1,500 Late Filer Penalty. Broadcasters that do not plan to Renew should notify the FCC that they wish to relinquish their License, or donate it to another local non-profit organization.
