Auction 11, Licences for FM sound broadcasting, was held on Tuesday 31 March 2009. Dunbar Sloane Limited conducted the auction at its premises in Wellington.

Licences comprising a Lot commenced on 1 July 2009 and expired on 2 April 2011. A Renewal Agreement was required to be entered into as a condition of settlement, and provided for a further licence for a 20 year period to be granted if the Licence was in continuous ongoing use. There were no restrictions on acquisition by parties holding normal commercial licences.

The licences were recorded in the Register of Radio Frequencies (the Register). Some of the licences were in the Planned category and these licences were registered and therefore publicly available.

Lot 11FM004 at Sugarloaf (106.5 MHz) had an upper unwanted emission limit that is slightly narrower than normal, in order to comply with the Adjacent Frequency Emission Limit of the Management Rights. Testing confirmed that modern transmission equipment was able to meet this requirement. Compliance with the requirement was the responsibility of the winning bidder.
