This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The Commission, at the request of Dynamite Radio, Inc., substitutes Channel 265C2 for Channel 265A at Middlebury, VT, reallots Channel 265C2 to Berlin, VT, and modifies the license of Station WGTK to specify operation on the higher class channel and specify Berlin as its community of license. See 63 FR 36387, July 6, 1998. At the request of Montpelier Broadcasting, Inc., the Start Printed Page 3151Commission allots Channel 290A to Hardwick, VT, as the community's first local aural service. Channel 265C2 can be allotted to Berlin in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, with respect to domestic allotments, with a site restriction of 11.1 kilometers (6.9 miles) north of the community, at coordinates 44-18-15 NL; 72-37-24 WL. The site restriction does not obviate the short-spacings to Stations CBF-FM, Channel 265C1, Montreal, Quebec, and CBF10F, Channel 266B, Sherbrook, Quebec, Canada. Channel 290A can be allotted to Hardwick in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, with respect to domestic allotments, without the imposition of a site restriction, at coordinates 44-30-18 NL; 72-22-24 WL. The allotment coordinates do not obviate the short-spacing to Stations CFGL, Channel 289C1, Laval, Quebec, and CIMO, Channel 289C1, Magog, Quebec, Canada. Since both Berlin and Hardwick are located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border, Canadian concurrence in these allotments, as specially negotiated short-spaced allotments, has been obtained. A filing window for Channel 290A at Hardwick, VT, will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening a filing window for this channel will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order.
