FCC Invites Broadcasters to Test Repack Reimbursement System

October 5, 2016

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) is providing broadcasters with an opportunity to test and provide feedback on the Incentive Auction Broadcaster Relocation Reimbursement System, which is the online form that the Commission will use to collect requests for reimbursement of repacking expenses (technically known as FCC Form 2100, Schedule 399). The FCC’s catalog of repacking expenses is embedded in Schedule 399.

Broadcasters can access a test environment using their FRN and password. A quick start guide is available here.

The Commission is inviting broadcasters to provide feedback on the form and the test environment by November 4, 2016.

If you have questions about the Incentive Auction Broadcaster Relocation Reimbursement System or the repacking process generally, please contact your designated Wiley Rein auction attorney or one of the attorneys listed on this alert.
