This request should contain a copy of the agreement and an affidavit of each party to the agreement. In the event that the proposed withdrawal of a conflicting application would unduly impede achievement of a fair, efficient, and equitable distribution of radio service, the FCC must issue an order providing further opportunity to apply for the facilities specified in the application(s) withdrawn. Upon release of this order, 47 CFR section 73.3525(b) requires that the party proposing withdrawal of its application give notice in a daily newspaper of general circulation published in the community in which the proposed station would have been located. Additionally, within seven days of the last publication of the notice, the applicant proposing to withdraw shall file with the FCC a statement giving the dates the notice was published, the text of the notice, and the name and location of the newspaper where the notice was published. The newspaper publication gives interested parties an opportunity to apply for the facilities specified in the withdrawn application(s).
