a radio tower

$200k

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.

This federally-mandated move will cost the station $200k, an extraordinary expense, vital to continuing station operation.
