FCC loosens rules for translator location

Following the Federal Communications Commission‘s (FCC) newly modified rules, FM translators can now be located anywhere within the AM’s daytime service contour or a 25-mile radius of the transmitter, even if the contour is farther than 25 miles out. Previously, the rule said an AM station could place a rebroadcasting FM translator within the smaller of its daytime service contour or the 25-mile radius of its transmitter.

This means that the 2,000 or so US AM radio stations that rebroadcast on FM translators now have more flexibility in locating those FM signals. A search of the FCC’s database by engineering consulting firm du Treil, Lundin & Rackley, shows 157 commercial band FM translator service applications being accepted by the commission last week compared to approximately 24 the week prior.
