It's on

The dates are finally final:  USAC has announced that the 2013-2014 filing window will be December 12, 2012 to March 14, 2013.  The close of the window is creeping back towards February, which I think is the wrong direction, but mid-March is OK.

This year has been very orderly and timely so far: ESL released on time, window announced in a timely way.  Now if the FCC would approve the PIA procedures before the opening of the window, we would have the timeliness trifecta.  But I'm not holding my breath, because the procedures are generally not approved until after the window is closed.

Imagine if the FCC approved the procedures today.  USAC could approve the first applications before the end of December.  Then we'd see more applicants applying early.  I mean, think about.  If you filed on December 14th, you might get an FCDL in January.  So if you had somehow screwed up, there would still be time to file a new470, wait 28 days, and file another 471.

Hey, a fellow can dream, can't he?
