Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for confidentiality with this collection of information. Privacy Impact Assessment(s): No impact(s). Needs and Uses: FCC Form 301 is used to apply for authority to construct a new commercial AM, FM, or TV broadcast station and to make changes to existing facilities of such a station. It may be used to request a change of a station’s community of license by AM and non-reserved band FM permittees and licensees. In addition, FM licensees or permittees may request, by filing though an application on FCC Form 301, upgrades on adjacent and cochannels, modifications to adjacent channels of the same class, and downgrades to adjacent channels. All applicants using this one-step process must demonstrate that a suitable site DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 exists that would comply with allotment standards with respect to minimum distance separation and principal community coverage and that would be suitable for tower construction. For applicants to seek a community of license change through this one-step process, the proposed facility must be mutually exclusive with the applicant’s existing facility, and the new facility must comply with the Commission’s standards with respect to minimum distance separation and principal community coverage. Applicants availing themselves of this procedure must also attach an exhibit demonstrating that the proposed community of license change comports with the fair, efficient, and equitable distribution of radio service, pursuant to Section 307(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’).

Additionally, a petitioner seeking to add a Tribal Allotment to the FM Table of Allotments must file Form 301 when submitting its Petition for Rulemaking. The collection also accommodates applicants applying in a TQ Window for a Tribal Allotment that had been added to the FM Table of Allotments using the Tribal Priority under the new ‘‘threshold qualifications’’ procedures adopted in the Third R&O, FCC 11–190. To receive authorization for commencement of Digital Television (‘‘DTV’’) operations, commercial broadcast licensees must file FCC Form 2100, Schedule A for a construction permit. The application may be filed anytime after receiving the initial DTV allotment and before mid-point in the applicant’s construction period. The Commission will consider the application as a minor change in facilities. Applicants will not have to provide full legal or financial qualification information. This collection also includes the third party disclosure requirement of 47 CFR 73.3580. This rule requires applicants to provide local public notice, in a newspaper of general circulation published in a community in which a station is located, of requests for new or major changes in facilities and for changes of a station’s community of license by AM and non-reserved band E:\FR\FM\04NON1.SGM 04NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 213 / Tuesday, November 4, 2014 / Notices FM permittees and licensees.
