Back in July, the Commission announced its plans for the final digital transition of LPTV/TV Translator/Class A TV stations. Those plans were hustled over to the Federal Register in less than two weeks, an apparent indication that the Commission intends to hold fast to the transition schedule it had plotted out. But seven parties – including NPR and the National Translator Association – have different ideas. They filed petitions for reconsideration of the Second Report and Order. Formal notice of the filing of those petitions has now hit the Federal Register, which means that anyone looking to chip in his or her two cents’ worth on any (or all) of the petitions has until November 30, 2011 to do so; reply comments can also be filed until December 12.
If you want to read any of the petitions, here are the links:
