The FCC yesterday issued a Public Notice (available here) reminding all TV stations (including Class A TV stations) that are changing channels as a result of the TV incentive auction, including those receiving compensation from auction payments for moving from UHF to VHF channels, that they must file their first quarterly Transition Progress Report no later than October 10, 2017. The reports should be filed on FCC Form 2100 – Schedule 387, which is now available by logging in to the FCC’s Licensing and Management System (https://enterpriseefiling.fcc.gov/dataentry/login.html). The Transition Progress Report form just became available in LMS this week.

Additional reports will be due on the 10th of the month following the end of each calendar quarter, with additional reports due closer to the station’s Phase Assignment and after completing the transition.
