January 2000 - FCC creates new license class for low power non-commercial
radio stations called LPFM.
June 2000 - Window for California appications for a Low Power FM radio
and filed by KQRP.
Fall 2000 - After the filing window closed, legislation slid through
on an Appropriations
Bill that disqualifies two-thirds of the applicants based on deliberately
false data. FOTE's frequency gets the axe due to "third
adjacency" rules. Application in limbo status.
October 2002 - A new window for LPFM amendments open to allow those
stations who lost their frequency to file for a new one under the new
rules. We filed the amendment.
June 2003 - Construction Permit was granted to KQRP by the FCC
on 6-30-03 for a LPFM 100 watt non-commercial station to operate in the
town of Salida on the frequency of 106.1 fm.
Note: July 2003 -The
MITRE Report released. The MITRE Corporation did an independent
study on challending the validity of the engineering data presented
to Congress about LPFM interference.
