New FM Booster Rules Effective May 16

The FCC announced that May 16 is the effective date of its decision to allow FM boosters to provide 3 minutes of original programming per hour. As we noted earlier, the FCC authorization will take the form of an experimental license, which can be renewed annually.

In addition, the FCC is seeking comments on permanent rules to govern these boosters. Comments are due May 16.
