Coalition has some April Fools fun with issue.
The FCC has set the schedule for low-power TVs and translators displaced in the incentive auction to try and find new channels, inclduing advising stations to identify new channels as close to existing broadcasters as possible, echoing advice from Microsoft, which wants as much of the remaining spectrum used for unlicensed wireless as possible.
Last week the NAB sent a request to the FCC to create further assistance for low-power television stations and translators who might become displaced prior to being able to apply for the special displacement window.
The spectrum repack could soon cause some LPTV stations to go off the air completely unless the FCC takes action in regards to alternative channels, per a letter from the National Association of Broadcasters to the Commission.
Point to dislocations but highlight role as digital uniters.
