WASHINGTON, D.C. — Womble Carlyle Telecom attorney John Garziglia continues to examine the FCC’s TV spectrum repack plan with Radio World. The repack also could impact radio stations that share tower space with television broadcasters, and Garziglia pays particular attention to the potential effect on radio broadcasters.
“Now would be the time to apply for an auxiliary transmitter site or at the very least, an auxiliary antenna at a different height on the same tower far enough away from TV antennas so that work on them do not require the radio station to leave the air,” Garziglia said.
