An AM Traveler’s Information Station (TIS) is typically not considered an attributable interest that would prevent LPFM ownership. TIS stations are designated for providing non-commercial, traffic, and traveler-related information, primarily to serve the interests of the traveling public. These stations are subject to specific regulations and are generally not considered as part of the ownership or attribution rules that apply to full-power commercial or non-commercial radio stations.
Yes, public safety entities are typically required to provide a justification when requesting multiple stations, even if they are located at the same tower site. This justification helps ensure that their allocation of multiple stations is necessary and serves a legitimate public safety purpose. The FCC may review and evaluate these requests to determine their validity and whether they align with the public interest and safety requirements.
