The starting pistol is loaded

The ESL for 2012 has been released!  Long live the ESL!  I haven't read the whole list yet, but the FCC says they mostly adopted the draft ESL, and I already commented on the draft.

The FCC also authorized USAC to open the filing window no earlier than November 28th.  First, kudos to the FCC for obeying their own 60-days-between-approval-of-ESL-and-opening-of-window rule.  Two years in a row!  But more importantly, it's time for the annual window pool.  When will it open?  When will it close?

My bets:
Open: January 2nd
Close: March 22nd


  1. Maybe the window should close on the Ides of March. Et tu, PIA?

    Hum, the Ides of March... also a festival day celebrating Mars, the god of War. Let's lighten things up a bit. Close the window on March 16, - and have reviews begin on a Saturday for a change. Consider how much more fun St. Patrick's Day might make the review process.
