§  73.607   Availability of channels.

   (a) Applications may be filed to construct TV broadcast stations only
   on the channels designated in the Table of Allotments (§  73.606(b)) and
   only in the communities listed therein. Applications which fail to
   comply with this requirement, whether or not accompanied by a petition
   to amend the Table, will not be accepted for filing. However,
   applications specifying channels which accord with publicly announced
   FCC Orders changing the Table of Allotments will be accepted for filing
   even though such applications are tendered before the effective dates
   of such channel changes.

   (b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a) of this section, an application may
   be filed for a channel or community not listed in the TV Table of
   Allotments if it is consistent with the rules and policies established
   in the Third Report and Order in WT Docket 99-168 (FCC 01-25), adopted
   January 18, 2001. Where such a request is approved, the Media Bureau
   will change the Table of Allotments to reflect that approval.

   [ 51 FR 44070 , Dec. 8, 1986, as amended at  66 FR 10208 , Feb. 14, 2001;
    67 FR 13232 , Mar. 21, 2002]
