As part of its Learning Everything About Reverse-Auctions Now Program (LEARN), the Commission announced details for its October 26, 2012 workshop on the FCC’s recently released incentive auction NPRM. The workshop provided information about issues raised in the NPRM that are particularly relevant to broadcasters considering participating in the auction, including proposed auction designs, the mechanics of participation, and station eligibility. It also focused on issues of interest to broadcasters that may choose not to participate, including proposed band plans and possible approaches to repacking. This workshop was part of the FCC’s commitment to an open and transparent process to ensure that the proposals in the NPRM are understood by all relevant stakeholders, so that they can engage effectively in the public comment process and make informed decisions about participating in the auction.
