On June 20,  the FCC released a Public Notice announcing a June 13 Petition for Rulemaking  submitted by Commander Communication Corporation (“Commander”) to create a new FM station class “A10.” In its Petition, Commander proposed a new FM class with operating parameters of maximum of 10,000 watts effective radiated power (ERP) and 100 meters height above average terrain (HAAT). Commander also proposed amending current facilities requirements to accommodate its new FM broadcast class.

The Commission is seeking comments on the proposal and has established a deadline to do so of July 22, 2024. If you have questions about the proposal or are considering filing comments, please contact your FHH attorney.
