of this part, and Subpart G of part 74 of this chapter regarding
interference protection to and from Class A TV stations, Class A TV
stations may negotiate agreements with parties of authorized and
proposed analog TV, DTV, LPTV, TV translator, Class A TV stations or
other affected parties to resolve interference concerns; provided,
however, other relevant requirements are met with respect to the
parties to the agreement. A written and signed agreement must be
submitted with each application or other request for action by the
Commission. Negotiated agreements under this paragraph can include the
exchange of money or other considerations from one entity to another.
Applications submitted pursuant to the provisions of this paragraph
will be granted only if the Commission finds that such action is
consistent with the public interest.
(b) A Class A TV station displaced in channel by a channel allotment
change for a DTV station may seek to exchange channels with the DTV
station, provided both parties consent in writing to the change and
that the Class A station meets all applicable interference protection
requirements on the new channel. Such requests will be treated on a
case-by-case basis and, if approved, will not subject the Class A
station to the filing of competing applications for the exchanged
