FCC Denies Oklahoma City’s Request for Reconsideration of License Termination
Wednesday, January 13, 2021 | Comments

The FCC denied a request from the city of Custer, Oklahoma, asking for reconsideration of a license termination.

In December 2019, the FCC’s Universal Licensing System (ULS) sent Custer a notice of license termination for station WQX266 due to the city’s failure to meet construction and construction notification requirements. In February, the city filed a petition for reconsideration of that decision.

Under commission rules, a petition of reconsideration must be filed within 30 days from the date of the commission’s action. Custer did not file its petition until six days after the deadline.

“Because the petition does not meet the requirements of section 1.106(f), we must dismiss it as untimely,” the FCC said.

If the city seeks to continue operating the station, it will need to file a new, properly coordinated application. If the city needs to operate while the application is pending, it can file a request for special temporary authority.
