|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
A construction permit is issued to a TV station by the Federal Communications Commission when said station wishes to modify its broadcasting status. A construction permit is issued for the following requests:
- A request to increase/decrease the station's power.
- A request to change the station's city of license.
- A request to change the station's broadcasting frequency.
- A request to move the station's transmitter to another location.
Construction permits are assigned by auction. In the past, permits were given based on what station's programming would serve the city of license the best.
