Skywaves specializes in facility upgrades for FM stations, along with creating new FM Stations via Non-Commercial / Educational (NC/E or NCE) filing windows, and FM Auctions.
Skywaves offers decades of expertise in the Canadian and Mexican border areas in addition to extensive knowledge and experience in the core US areas. In the border regions, different rules apply, and specialized knowledge and experience are required to maximize your signal.
New FCC rule changes have given stations additional flexibility to improve their situations. Only an experienced consulting firm like Skywaves can provide your station with the maximum benefit from those changes.
New non-broadcast technologies, such as Internet Telephony and Podcasting, can have serious impact - for good or bad - on the operation and financial situation of a broadcasting business. Skywaves provides insight and analysis on new technologies as they effect broadcasters.
New broadcast technologies can impact stations even more critically. Currently important issues include new interference modes to analog FM stations from digital FM stations, potential new interference from translators and LPFM stations, and potential competition from new Internet broadcast technologies like Wi-Max.
Skywaves' principal consultant, Dave Doherty, is a former owner of five radio stations. He has been a leader in technological innovations in broadcasting and aviation technologies. Dave has worked on uncounted FM allocation situations since 1971, and he has provided many upgrades for stations in "hopeless" situations. Dave's bio is online here.
