If You Want To Apply For A New LPFM Radio Station, Time Is Running Out!!!
LPFM application handling firms are quickly running out of available "slots" for accepting new applicants. We definitely advise against "waiting for the last minute" as will certainly leave many, many prospective applicants "out in the cold" with nowhere to turn for technical assistance. (No matter how "do it yourself" the application is supposed to be, the last filing windows did not bode well for those who actually prepared their own applications.)
If you would like to prepare a filing for submission to the FCC during the upcoming LPFM application filing window, please contact us now so that we can help get someone with the proper technical skills to work on your LPFM application, ASAP. To this point, we've been pretty "laid back" but, at this stage, time is indeed running close and the proper preparation of an LPFM application for the upcoming October, 2013, LPFM filing window will necessitate that any serious applicant should have already begin preliminary work.
LPFMRadio.com - Low Power FM Radio
First and foremost, you need to know that LPFMRadio.com is in the business of preparing LPFM radio station applications for a fee. We have one of the most successful records of preparing grantable applications for submission to the Federal Communications Commission in the industry. Having said this, we also would request that, before hiring us, DO check out any and all other LPFM application preparation firms and LPFM engineering firms and see what they have to offer. After you do this, come to us with their written quote and we will work from there. Upon completion off this process, you will feel like you will be getting a much more personalized service with us.
You also should know that there are two ways in which your application can be prepared: "Fast" or "Accurately". With something as important as your LPFM license under consideration, do you really want to wait until the last possible minute to begin work on your project?
LPFMRadio.com exists to assist you with regards to the FCC's Low Power FM Broadcasting Service (LPFM). Thousands of people, organizations and public service groups will soon have new opportunities to apply for, obtain and to operate new low power fm radio stations, serving local communities all across the country.
Since the idea behind the LPFM Broadcasting Service is that new broadcasters will obtain LPFM radio licenses and new community-based voices populate the airwaves, there will be many who know little (if anything) about broadcasting in general, and LPFM radio in particular. As a result of this, our mission is to make available as much good information as possible, so that potential LPFM applicants can make an informed decision as to whether to apply for one of these new licenses. Then, in the event you should get one, we will help you in determining how to go about construction and operation in proper manner within the rules and regulations as set forth by the Federal Communications Commission.
LPFMRadio.com also exists as a means of providing services to LPFM radio stations already in existence in the form of much needed engineering services such as:
A Brief Overview of LPFM
As an applicant, you will have to certify that your organization does indeed operate within the city in which you wish to broadcast. You will also be required to certify that a majority of your board (or other persons) live within ten miles of the proposed LPFM radio station and/or that your educational organization is headquartered within 10 miles of your proposed transmitter site.
Now that the FCC Rules are available, it's imperative that you take a long look at what the FCC is asking from potential LPFM applicants. If you have specific questions, please contact your legal council or LPFMRadio.com or MonsterFM.com.
An Important Word of Warning! Until you have a construction permit, you do not have the right to purchase equipment and start broadcasting. When you have your construction permit and have built your facility according to your FCC issued LPFM radio construction permit, then, and only then can you go on the air. Under no circumstances should you even think about broadcasting until your construction permit is granted.
Unlicensed operation is against the law, and can haunt you for a long, long time.
Do I Really Require The services of An Engineer In Preparing My LPFM Application?
Many prospective clients have asked us why they would require the services of a professional technical consultant in filing an application with the FCC when there are so many "free online help centers". The answer to this question is simple to understand for anyone who is familiar with the filing process. But, the answer can be quite confusing to those who have never dealt with preparing and submitting an FCC application before:
In the end, only YOU can make the decision: Do you just want to "play around" and hope that what you think will work out is acceptable and save a few hundred dollars in the hopes of being lucky? Or, would you rather take every possible step at insuring that your application information is as accurate as possible in order to maximize your chances at getting that FCC broadcast license granted so that you can own your own LPFM radio station?
LPFMRadio.com exists to provide affordable, reliable and technically accurate broadcast technical services. You'll find our fees to be among the most competitive in the industry. In the event you feel our rates are "too high", you may want to keep in mind the age-old adage: "You get what you pay for."
Quick Start Program
If you've read this far, you obviously are interested in applying for an LPFM. Here are a few "Quick Start Points".
The LPFM service requires that the applicant file as a non-profit organization. An LPFM applicant can work with an existing non-profit or form a new one. A non-profit corporation is the quickest and simplest to form. The non-profit is not currently required to have official 501c3 status in order to qualify for the granting of an LPFM.
We are aware that there are free online sources for frequency studies / feasibility studies but, as we prefer to deal with "real people" who are serious about wanting a station, we have elected not to provide such a tool for several reason:
If you are interested in applying in the upcoming filing window you should contact us and make arrangements to have this done right away. We expect a filing window to be announced for either the fall of 2011 or possibly the spring 2012.
IMPORTANT: Do not wait until an LPFM filing window has been announced to get started with preparing an LPFM application! There are many preparations that we will need to advise you of and to have enough time to step you through before an application can even begin to be prepared for filing.
If you are interested in taking advantage of our LPFM services, send an email to LPFM(at)lpfmradio.com or call any of the numbers on the contact page.
