NATIVE AMERICAN BROADCASTERS SUGGEST RADIO APPLICATION RULES
[SOURCE: Lasar's Letter on the FCC, AUTHOR: Matthew Lasar]
In early April the FCC announced that it will open a filing window for non-commercial stations to begin on Friday, October 12th and last through the following Friday the 19th. An alliance of Native American public radio stations has asked the Federal Communications Commission to put a limit on the number of applications groups can submit. NPM wants the Commission to set a limit of no more than ten applications for a single party. The organization also wants the FCC to devote one of its upcoming Indian Telecommunications Initiatives (ITI) conferences to informing tribes about how to apply for stations. In addition, NPM has petitioned the FCC to modify its point system for evaluating NCE applications, giving one additional point to applications filed by federally recognized Native American tribes.
