  FCC CREATES THE LOW POWER FM RADIO SERVICE

  Following are official news sources:

  Plain text file (poorly formatted at this time):
  http://www.fcc.gov/Bureaus/Mass_Media/News_Releases/2000/nrmm0001.txt 

  Word file (downloads properly):
  http://www.fcc.gov/Bureaus/Mass_Media/News_Releases/2000/nrmm0001.doc 

  Low Power FM Fact Sheet (web page):
  http://www.fcc.gov/mmb/prd/lpfm/ 

  The full Report & Order should be available in a few days.

  Don't forget to take the U.S./Mexican FM Broadcasting
  Agreement into consideration if you do any channel planning.

  However, the NAB is expected to continue to fight LPFM
  vigorously, so don't count on the new service as a "sure
  thing" yet.
