FICORA received 20 applications for programming licences for radio operationsPublished 31.08.2015 | Updated 08.09.2015
Programming licences for FM radio could be applied for 94 new individual frequencies and four frequency units and licences for AM radio could be applied for four individual frequencies. There were frequencies available throughout the country except the Helsinki metropolitan area.
Deadline for the applications was Friday 28 August 2015 at 12:00 noon. The next phase is to examine which frequencies the applicants wanted. FICORA grants the licences when there is no shortage of frequencies open for application. The Government continues to make the decisions on programming licences in cases where there are not sufficiently frequencies for analogue radio operations for all applicants. In these cases, FICORA transfers the matter to the Government and notifies the applicant that the matter has been transferred.
