  §  73.202   Table of Allotments.

   (a) General. The following Table of Allotments contains the channels
   (other than noncommercial educational Channels 201-220) designated for
   use in communities in the United States, its territories, and
   possessions, and not currently assigned to a licensee or permittee or
   subject to a pending application for construction permit or license.
   All listed channels are for Class B stations in Zones I and I-A and for
   Class C stations in Zone II unless otherwise specifically designated.
   Channels to which licensed, permitted, and “reserved” facilities have
   been assigned are reflected in the Media Bureau's publicly available
   Consolidated Data Base System.

   (1) Channels designated with an asterisk may be used only by
   noncommercial educational broadcast stations. The rules governing the
   use of those channels are contained in part 73, subpart C of this
   chapter. An entity that would be eligible to operate a noncommercial
   educational broadcast station can, in conjunction with an initial
   petition for rulemaking filed pursuant to part 1, subpart C of this
   chapter, request that a nonreserved FM channel (channels 221 through
   300) be allotted as reserved only for noncommercial educational
   broadcasting by demonstrating the following:

   (i) No reserved channel can be used without causing prohibited
   interference to TV channel 6 stations or foreign broadcast stations; or

   (ii) The applicant is technically precluded from using the reserved
   band by existing stations or previously filed applications and the
   proposed station would provide a first or second noncommercial
   educational radio service to 2,000 or more people who constitute 10% of
   the population within the proposed allocation's 60 dBu (1 mV/m) service

   (2) Each channel listed in the Table of Allotments reflects the class
   of station that is authorized to use it based on the minimum and
   maximum facility requirements for each class contained in § 73.211.

   Note: The provisions of this paragraph [(a)(2) of this section] become
   effective [3 years from the effective date of the Report and Order in
   BC Docket 80-90].
