The Commission amended its service rules for the 746-764 and 776-794 MHz bands in two recent decisions. The First Report and Order (FR Doc. 00-1332) was published at 65 FR 3139, January 20, 2000, and the Second Report and Order (FR Doc. 00-8144) at 65 FR 17594, April 4, 2000). These rule changes affected other rules in the current CFR, which were inadvertently not amended at that time to reflect the new amendments.

Need for Clarifying Rules

The existing rule sections affected by these recent decisions must be amended to conform with the actions taken in the two Commission decisions. The current amendments will ensure that the Commission's rules are current, useful, and correct.
