The next open meeting of the Federal Communications Commission’s commissioners is scheduled for Nov. 30, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. at FCC headquarters in Washington.

The tentative agenda for that meeting includes an item “Expanding Nationwide Low Power Radio Opportunities Fifth Order on Reconsideration and Sixth Report and Order.”

The commissioners are to consider a Fifth Order on Reconsideration and Sixth Report and Order, which address the final procedures to approve more than 6,000 pending FM translator radio applications and implementation of the Local Community Radio Act.

Consideration of those items “will represent the final steps toward enabling non-profit groups nationwide to apply for low power radio licenses to further expand the diversity of local voices in the media landscape,” the commission says.

For those who cannot attend, the meeting will be shown live at FCC.gov/live.
