You may wish to note that although the FCC is “shutdown,” they are still auctioning off spectrum and collecting income. As such, they must continue to process all the paperwork that creates and report to the public about it.
As a result, the Daily Digest is reduced to a few lines.

One thing I read into these pirates that have been busted. They are so blatant. Used to be if the FCC busted you, the person shut it down and apologized hoping they would not get fined. These people are in real trouble if they thumb their nose at the FCC. They could spend jail time. I don’t know of any who have, but it is always a possibility. Add to that a huge fine that the person probably could not pay, so there goes their credit down the tube. It is not 1970 any longer.February 18, 2019 at 5:04 pm #40968

If I read this correctly, it could potentially allow some local groups like X-Ray and religious broadcasters to snap up LPFM’s. If localism and diversity no longer gives an entity an edge in the process, someone like CBN could come in and apply for every Non-com and LPFM frequency available in the country and would be on equal footing with a local group trying to start a LPFM. Feels like that kinda defeats the purpose of establishing the LPFM’s in the first place.February 19, 2019 at 9:36 am #40971
I didn’t see anything about changes to the LPFM ownership rules which are limited to one per licensee.February 19, 2019 at 11:01 am #40972ScreamerParticipant
I guess I was reading into the assignment clause.February 22, 2019 at 7:21 am #40988Craig_AdamsParticipant
This from All Access:
TOOL SHED PDX has requested a Silent STA for KXYQ-LP/PORTLAND.
OPAL ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE OREGON has applied for a Silent STA for KICN-LP/PORTLAND.
ASIAN PACIFIC AMERICAN NETWORK OF OREGON has filed for a Silent STA for KVBE-LP/PORTLAND due to a malfunctioning combiner.February 22, 2019 at 8:55 am #40989ChicoParticipant
Turns out, radio is hard. Whodathunk?February 22, 2019 at 10:31 am #40990
KXYQ-LP, KICN-LP, and KVBE-LP all are licensed to the same transmitter site as KQRZ. In practice, this just means that the simulcast of KQRZ on 101.5 MHz will go off the air, as 96.7 has been silent for quite some time, and 89.5 never signed on, to the best of my knowledge.February 26, 2019 at 3:06 pm #41032
As of a few days ago (Sunday, if memory serves me correctly), KXYQ-LP (101.5) is silent.February 26, 2019 at 4:34 pm #41033February 6, 2020 at 5:15 pm #44039
The FCC continues to flagrantly ignore its own rules so that it may support its crazy agenda of trying to save the AM band which is IMO a monumental waste of time.
The ruling:February 6, 2020 at 5:46 pm #44040
In page 3, footnote 13 of the ruling, the FCC implies that it is easier to grant FM translator licenses to AM stations than for the Commission to do its job of enforcing the unintentional radiators rules in Part 15.
