End Of Incentive Auction Repack Looms

The FCC is advising LPTVs and translator stations still operating on the guard band between TV stations and wireless operators and in the so-called duplex gap between wireless uplink and downlink spectrum that they will have to shut down by July 13. That affects stations on channels 38, 44, 45 and 46 in the so-called duplex gap, and is the case because the long-awaited closing of the 10th and last phase of the post incentive auction transition closes July 3.
