ANNOUNCEMENT: A RADIO ON THE EDGE update for Firebare supporters
UPDATE: FCC decision November 9: Firebare is now tentative final selectee in 401 MX group: http://radioontheedge.org/node/26
We finally have news!
Many of you have asked about the status of the application that Firebare submitted to The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) on October 15, 2007, for a license to build and operate a new noncommercial educational radio station on the Oregon Central Coast.
Six other conflicting applications from competing organizations were also submitted at that time which made conflicting claims on the public airwaves in this area. Our lawyer and engineer advised us at that time that it would take the FCC two to three years to resolve these mutually exclusive (MX) applications, and, sure enough, on August 3, 2010, 1,023 days, or 2.8 years to the day after filing our application, the FCC duly released their tentative decision on our MX Group #401.
