§ 73.6013 Protection of DTV stations.
Class A TV stations must protect the DTV service that would be provided
by the facilities specified in the DTV Table of Allotments in § 73.622
of this part, by authorized DTV stations and by applications that
propose to expand DTV stations' allotted or authorized coverage contour
in any direction, if such applications either were filed before
December 31, 1999 or were filed between December 31, 1999 and May 1,
2000 by a DTV station licensee or permittee that had notified the
Commission of its intent to “maximize” by December 31, 1999. Protection
of these allotments, stations and applications must be based on not
causing predicted interference within the service area described in
§ 73.622(e) of this part. The interference analysis is based on the
methods described in § 73.623(c)(2) through (c)(4) of this part, except
that a Class A TV station must not cause a loss of service to 0.5
percent or more of the population predicted to receive service from the
DTV allotment, station or application. An application to change the
facilities of an existing Class A TV station will not be accepted if it
fails to protect these DTV allotments, stations and applications in
accordance with this section.
