WASHINGTON, D.C.—During its July meeting on July 20, the FCC will vote on issues relating to FM6 stations, aka “Franken FMs” and consider a Report and Order allowing a limited group of existing channel 6 low-power television stations to continue to provide analog FM radio service as an ancillary or supplementary service.

The issue has emerged as an interesting one for the rollout of NextGen TV/ATSC 3.0 services as some LPTV stations converted to ATSC 3.0 broadcasts while offering a analog FM service.
