Another important deadline has come and gone in the FCC's current proceeding to create a low power FM radio service. Back in August, public Comments on the proposal were due - the latest round of debate has been conducted via Reply Comments, which give anyone the opportunity to rebut something someone else said during the Comment phase.

I have to admit these weren't worded nearly as diplomatically as my original Comments were, but, hey, at this point everyone's arguments are on the table, and the time to be tactful is running short.

Reply Comments were due to the FCC November 15th; it will take the next step on the proposal within the next few months.
