Information Collections Being Submitted for Review and Approval 
to the Office of Management and Budget

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens, 
and as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501-3520), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) 
invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this 
opportunity to comment on the following information collections. 
Comments are requested concerning: whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Commission's burden estimate; ways to 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; 
ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the 
respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology; and ways to further reduce the 
information collection burden on small business concerns with fewer 
than 25 employees.
    The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. No person 
shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection 
of information subject to the

used to require broadcasters transitioning to a new station following 
the Incentive Auction, or going off the air as a result of a winning 
bid in the Incentive Auction, to notify their viewers of the date the 
station will terminate operations on its pre-Auction channel by running 
public service announcements, and allow these broadcasters to inform 
MVPDs of their relinquishment or change in channel. It requires channel 
sharing agreements enter into by television broadcast licensees to 
contain certain provisions regarding access to facilities, financial 
obligations and to define each party's rights and responsibilities; the 
Commission will review each channel sharing agreement to ensure it 
comports with general rules and policies regarding license agreements. 
The provisions contained in this collection also require wireless 
licensees to notify low-power television and TV translator stations 
commence wireless operations and the likelihood of receiving harmful 
interference from the low power TV or TV translator station to such 
operations within the wireless licensee's licensed geographic service 
area. Finally, it requires license relinquishment stations and channel 
sharing stations to comply with notification and cancellation 
procedures as they terminate operations on their pre-Auction channel.

Channel Reassignment Public Notice. Under certain circumstances, 
licensees of stations reassigned to a new channel within their existing 
band to propose transmission facilities in their construction permit 
applications that will extend their coverage contours. In addition, 
there will be a priority processing window for licensees of reassigned 
stations, UHF-to-VHF stations, or High-VHF-to-Low-VHF stations that, 
for reasons beyond their control, are unable to construct facilities 
that meet the technical parameters specified in the Channel 
Reassignment Public Notice, or the permissible contour coverage 
variance from those technical parameters specified in section 
73.3700(b)(1)(ii) or (iii). Channel sharee stations file a minor change 
application for a construction permit for the channel on which the 
channel sharer operates at least sixty (60) days prior to the date by 
which it must terminate operations on its pre-auction channel and must 
include a copy of the channel sharing agreement. In addition, subject 
to limitations set out in the rules, a Class A licensee of a reassigned 
station, a UHF-to-VHF station, or a High-VHF-to-Low-VHF station may 
file a minor change application for a construction permit on FCC Form 
2100 Schedule E during a filing window to be announced by the Media 
Bureau by public notice, in order to request a change in the technical 
parameters specified in the Channel Reassignment Public Notice with 
respect to height above average terrain (HAAT), effective radiated 
power (ERP), or transmitter location that would be considered a minor 
change under sections 73.3572(a)(1), (2) or 74.787(b). FCC
