Welcome to part two of this week's NorthEast Radio Watch coverage, wherein we summarize the first full week of the FCC's "AM Improvement" filing window that allows owners of class C and D AM signals to buy translators as far away as 250 miles and relocate them to sites and frequencies in their own markets. (Missed Monday's regular NERW edition? It's right here.)

It was, in some ways, a much quieter week than we'd expected. The first day of filings, which we chronicled in last week's NERW Extra, brought in about 400 applications nationwide, which means one of every ten AM stations found a translator and a frequency and filed. As we noted last week, only a small fraction of those applications in our region were mutually exclusive to others filed in the window, and in this week's report we start to see how some (but not all) of those MX'd applicants are sorting things out.

And with our brokerage/consultant hat on, we'd note that for many class C and D signals that still haven't applied, there are still opportunities out there. Come see us at TranslatorSale.com and let's talk about what Fybush Media can do for you!

On with the applications...
