This submission is being made to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the approval of information collection requirements contained in the Commission’s FM Broadcast Directional Antenna Performance Verification Order adopted May 19, 2022, and released on May 19, 2022, FCC 22-38, where the Commission revised its broadcast radio rules and procedures to allow for FM antenna directional pattern verification by computer modeling. This represents an update from the previous requirement that an FM or LPFM directional antenna’s performance be verified by the “measured relative field pattern” and brings our rules for those services into regulatory conformity with our rules governing AM and DTV directional antennas. The Commission expects that this change in how the antenna manufacturer may validate its FM directional antenna studies would provide an FM license applicant with greater flexibility in antenna siting and reduce the overall costs of designing and building an FM directional antenna, and station construction.
