As part of the broadcast spectrum incentive auction, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is authorized to repack the television band by assigning television stations to new channels. This process will pose significant challenges for the broadcast industry. Nearly 1,000 stations including All Classical Portland must migrate to a new channel/tower. On April 13, 2017 the FCC released a public notice announcing the results of the auction and outlining which stations will be moving along with their new channel assignments. This federally-mandated move will cost the station $200k, an extraordinary expense, vital to continuing station operation.
