of the 2 mV/m contour or 25 miles (40 km) from the AM transmitter.
The change that became effective today revises that to the greater of the 2 mV/m contour or 25 miles (40 km) from the AM transmitter.
This means that AM stations with deep nulls are now able to locate FM translators on their towers.
It also means that AM stations with great reach will be able to locate FM translators in markets that are currently only rim-shots for them, and that AM stations with small coverage areas will be able to serve communities up to 25 miles away.
As an added benefit to AM stations with FM translators modified in the 2016 window, those translators may be moved again, as long as they comply with the new 2 mV/m / 25 mile limits, and the new location remains in compliance with the 250 mile relocation limit.
