All I Want for Christmas is a New Radio Station: Window for FM Auction Opens Jan. 3


As the year hurtles to a close and desks are cleared for the holidays, don't forget that the window for filing an application to participate in the upcoming FCC Auction opens on January 3, 2012, the first business day of the new year. As we wrote about earlier (here), the FCC will hold an auction on March 27, 2012, offering 119 construction permits for new FM radio stations. The permits are scattered across the country and have minimum opening bid amounts ranging from $1,500 to $100,000. A complete list of the construction permits available in the auction can be found here. The filing window opens at noon ET on January 3rd, and parties interested in potentially bidding in the auction must prepare and file an FCC Form 175 Short Form application before 6 PM ET on January 12, 2012 in order to be eligible to participate. Instructions on how to file a Form 175 and further information about Auction No. 93 can be found in the FCC's Public Notice.
