SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NTIA has established the Low-Power Television and Translator Digital-to-Analog Conversion Program through which each eligible low-power television broadcast station may receive compensation toward the cost of the purchase of a digital-to-analog conversion device that enables it to convert the incoming digital signal of its corresponding full-power television station to analog format for transmission on the low-power television station’s analog channel. The conversion devices are necessary so the eligible stations can continue to broadcast in analog after the digital conversion of the full-power station occurs. Without converter devices, the eligible facilities will be unable to receive the incoming off-air digital signal for conversion and rebroadcast to consumers within their coverage area. On October 29, 2007, NTIA publish a notice announcing the availability of funds for this program.1 The DTV Delay Act, enacted on February 11, 2009, extended the deadline for submission of Low-Power Television and Translator Digital-toAnalog Conversion Program grant applications from February 17, 2009, to June 12, 2009.2 This provision amended section 3008(a)(1)of Digital Television Transition and Public Safety Act of 2005.3 Accordingly, NTIA publishes this notice to announce that it is extending the solicitation period for applications for the Low Power Television and Translator Digital-toAnalog Conversion Program. Any applications postmarked between February 18, 2009, and June 12, 2009, will be considered timely and will be given full consideration. Applications submitted by June 12, 2009, will utilize the same forms, and undergo the same review and evaluation process contained in the Notice of Availability of Funds of October 29, 2007, as amended.4 NTIA has approximately $1 million available for 1 Low-Power Television and Translator Digital-toAnalog Conversion Program, 72 Fed.
