    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.

    Here, see for yourself:

    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.

    Andy,

    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.

    I didn’t see anything about changes to the LPFM ownership rules which are limited to one per licensee.

    I guess I was reading into the assignment clause.

    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.

    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.

    As of a few days ago (Sunday, if memory serves me correctly), KXYQ-LP (101.5) is silent.
