LPFMs: Renew Your License Now and Save $50
The first twenty California Low Power FM stations to retain Christian Community Broadcasters
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
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.
