WASHINGTON, D.C.—With the initial phases of the FCC’s 250-mile FM translator relocation plan underway, Womble Carlyle Telecom attorney John Garziglia looks ahead to the next steps for translator relocation in Radio World.

In particular, Garziglia addresses such questions for 2017 as:

  • Will translator licensees and permittees find it a challenge to get a moved translator authorization built ahead of the next round of applications?
  • What if there are delays or things don’t move according to plan?
  • How likely is it that the FM translator channels abandoned in moves under the 250-mile window will be available for other AM stations in the anticipated 2017 auction filing window?
