AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

This document revises the Commission's Table of Frequency Allocations (“Allocation Table”). Specifically, it updates the International Table of Frequency Allocations (“International Table”). In order to assist the Federal Register staff in codifying international footnotes and in order to prevent confusion to the public, we are updating the Commission's Allocation Table in its entirety in order to remove the “S” prefix from the international footnotes. We also take this opportunity to update the International Table within our rules to reflect the Table of Frequency Allocations as it is found in the ITU Radio Regulations. The Commission believes that this action will assist users of the Allocation Table with their spectrum planning.

DATES:

Effective September 23, 2002.

Summary of the Order

1. This Order amends the Commission's Table of Frequency Allocations (“Allocation Table”) to update the International Table of Frequency Allocations (“International Table”). The International Table is provided in § 2.106 of our Rules for informational purposes only and is being updated to reflect the 2001 International Telecommunication Union (“ITU”) Radio Regulations. As a consequence of updating the international footnotes within the International Table, we are also revising footnote US342 (which concerns the protection of the radio astronomy service (“RAS”) in various frequency bands allocated to other services) and are re-numbering the existing versions of nine revised international footnotes as United States footnotes, thereby maintaining the status quo for the United States Table of Frequency Allocations (“United States Table”) until the Commission can consider the substantive changes in future proceedings. This ministerial action does not make any substantive changes to our Allocation Table and thus, does not change any licensee's legal rights or responsibilities.

2. The Commission's Allocation Table, which is codified at § 2.106 of our rules, consists of three tables: the International Table, the United States Table, and cross references to other parts of our rules.

International Table

3. For the allocation of frequencies, the ITU has divided the world into three Regions and codifies the allocations for these Regions in its Table of Frequency Allocations. In § 2.106 of our rules, the ITU's Table of Frequency Allocations has been re-named as the International Table. The International Table is subdivided into the Region 1 Table (column 1), the Region 2 Table (column 2), and the Region 3 Table (column 3). The International Table is included in our rules for informational purposes only.

4. The ITU Radio Regulations, Edition of 2001, became effective internationally on January 1, 2002, except as provided in the references in Article 59. We are updating § 2.100 of our rules to reflect this fact. In its 2001 Radio Regulations, the ITU modified the international footnotes to its Table of Frequency Allocations by deleting the “S” prefix. For example, international footnote S5.53 was revised as international footnote 5.53. In addition, the ITU modified certain international footnotes to remove the “S” prefix from references to the Radio Regulations. For example, Article S31 was revised as Article 31 in footnote 5.110.

5. In order to assist the Federal Register in codifying international footnotes and in order to prevent confusion to the public, we are updating the Commission's Allocation Table in its entirety in order to remove the “S” prefix from the international footnotes. In addition, we take this opportunity to update the International Table within our rules to reflect the Table of Frequency Allocations as it is found in the ITU Radio Regulations, Edition of 2001, Article 5, Section IV. We believe that this action will assist users of the Allocation Table with their spectrum planning.

Ministerial Changes to the United States Table

6. In the United States, radio spectrum may be allocated to either Federal Government or non-Federal Government use exclusively, or for shared use. As such, the United States Table is subdivided into the Federal Government Table of Frequency Allocations (“Federal Government Table”) and the Non-Federal Government Table of Frequency Allocations (“Non-Federal Government Table”). The Federal Government Table (column 4) is administered by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (“NTIA”), whereas the Non-Federal Government Table (column 5) is administered by the Commission.

7. Over the course of time, the Commission has adopted numerous international footnotes domestically and added them to the United States Table. We have reviewed each of these international footnotes. In order to update the International Table without making substantive changes to the United States Table, we have revised footnote US342 (which concerns the protection of the RAS in various frequency bands allocated to other services) and are re-numbering the existing versions of nine revised international footnotes as United States footnotes until such time as the Commission can consider these allocation changes to the United States Table.

Administrative Procedures Act Requirements and Ordering Clause

8. The International Table and FCC rule part(s) are included in the Commission's rules for informational purposes only. The United States Table is amended herein by incorporating non-substantive, editorial revisions only. Therefore, there is good cause for not using notice and comment procedure in this case, and for shortening the effective date of the amendments from a date not less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register to the date of such publication. We find that the normal procedures for notice and comment and for publication as required under Section 553 of the Start Printed Page 59601Administrative Procedures Act would be impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), (d)(3); Kessler v. FCC, 326 F.2d 673 (D.C. Cir. 1963).

9. Part 2 of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR part 2, IS AMENDED as set forth, effective September 23, 2002. This action is taken pursuant to authority found in §§ 4(i) and 303 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i) and 303, and in §§ 0.31, 0.231(b) and 0.241 of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 0.31, 0.231(b) and 0.241.
