    I don't have time or desire to look at all of these applications, but remember those that are representing non profit organizations hastily formed for the sole purpose of making application will not prevail in mutually exclusive (MX) situations.

    Conflicting LPFM Applications. Where one LPFM application does not meet the spacing requirements in 47 CFR 73.807 to another LPFM application, those applications are "mutually exclusive" in that both applications cannot be granted if interference is to be avoided. Mutually exclusive applications can occur with all the applications clustered together, or can take the form of a chain in which the end applications are linked through intermediate proposals.
    These mutually exclusive situations will be resolved through the application of a point system. Points are awarded for (1) the organization's presence in the community for at least two years, (2) a commitment to broadcast at least twelve hours per day, and (3) a commitment to provide at least eight hours of locally originated programming each day. The applicant with the most points will be awarded the construction permit.

    If there is a tie after the points are tallied, the competing applicants will be encouraged to share a license. Those competing applicants resubmitting their applications together will be permitted to aggregate their points. For example, three applicants tied with three points each would be given a total of nine points upon resubmission. This aggregated group of applicants with nine points would be awarded the construction permit over a single applicant with three points.

    If the tied applicants cannot agree to share a license, the FCC will divide equally an eight year non-renewable license term among the applicants. For example, if there are four tied applicants, each will receive a two year, non-renewable license term. The first license term will be awarded to the first to complete construction of its facilities pursuant to its construction permit.

    If there are more than eight tied applicants, the FCC will divide the eight year term among those applicants receiving a point for established community presence. If there are more than eight applicants, the FCC will award one year, non-renewable license terms to the eight entities with the longest community presence.

    For details on the point system, please see the Report and Order in MM Docket 99-25.

    Looks like nobody heard about this in the wilderness of Idaho.
    Ten total in Idaho and only two in the Boise area.

    One of these applications is from The Reed Institute. That's interesting.

    And one of them is for 1.8 watts. Might go a ways at 900 feet above the terrain, but boy will THAT be a paper thin signal!

    It looks like this station puts about 45dbu into its community of license. I didn't know they could do that but I suppose that if you aren't really protected anyway, you wouldn't need anywhere near 70dbu.
