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.
Federal Communications Commission.
The Commission requests comments on a petition filed by KFBB Corporation, L.L.C., licensee of station KFBB-TV, NTSC Channel 5, Great Falls, Montana, requesting the substitution of DTV Channel 8 for its assigned DTV Channel 39. DTV Channel 8 can be substituted and allotted to Great Falls, Montana, as proposed, in compliance with the principle community coverage requirements of Section 73.625(a) at coordinates (47-32-08 N. and 111-17-02 W). However, since the community of Great Falls is located within 400 kilometers of the U.S.-Canadian border, concurrence by the Canadian government must be obtained for this allotment. DTV Channel 8 can be allotted to Great Falls with a power of 160 (kW) and a height above average terrain (HAAT) of 180 meters.
Comments must be filed on or before August 21, 2000, and reply comments on or before September 5, 2000.
