Just a NOTE, here: There is NO SUCH THING, as the "FCC Licensing Board" All Licensing is done via Application to the Licensing Bureau in Gettysburg, PA. Licensing of Broadcast Stations, goes thru Spectrum Management, first, to find an Open Frequency. Then it goes to Technical, to review the Data on the proposed Transmitter and Antenna Specs. Finally it goes to the Broadcast Bureau, to review Ownership, and ability to operate, for the length of the License. (5 Years) Then to the Commissioners for final approval, and Issuance, of the Construction Permit, to build, and test, the Station. Once that is approved by Field Tests made by the Commissions Field Operations Staff, the Operating License is then issued, by the Licensing Bureau. For Renewals, they skip Spectrum Management, and Technical, if there are no changes, requested, and straight to the Broadcast Bureau, for the Public Interest Reviews. "Did the Station Operate, In the Public Interest" during the last License Period, and did the Station Meet ALL the "Public Interest" Requirements, that are in the Broadcast Regulations. If they find NO Issues, the Renewal is then forwarded to the Commissioners, for approval, and License Renewal, by the Licensing Bureau.
