Last month we reported on the Commission’s proposed re-vamp of the AM/FM allocation process.  The NPRM has now been published in the Federal Register, which means that the dates for comments and reply comments have been set. Comments are currently due no later than July 13, 2009, and reply comments are due no later than August 11, 2009. In view of the breadth of the changes proposed, it is at least possible that some extension of these deadlines may be sought between now and then, but for the time being anyone who may be inclined to submit comments on the proposals should calendar in July 13 and August 11 as the operative dates.
