Auction No. 54 included construction permits for one full power television (TV), two low power television (LPTV), and four FM broadcast stations. These broadcast stations were the subject of pending, mutually exclusive FCC Form 301 or Form 346 applications for construction permits for the referenced broadcast services, for which the Commission had not approved a settlement agreement that obviated the need for an auction. Participation in this auction was limited to those applicants. All applications within a mutually exclusive applicant group ("MX Group") were directly mutually exclusive with one another, and therefore a single construction permit was auctioned for each MX Group. Applicants were eligible to bid on only those construction permits selected on their previously filed FCC Form 301 or Form 346.
A complete list of construction permits and eligible applications for Auction No. 54 is provided in Attachment A of Public Notice DA 03-1547.
