AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Communications Commission published a document in the Federal Register on June 20, 2002, (67 FR 41847), revising the Quiet Zone procedures for operation near GOES stations. The publication incorrectly indicated that the GOES procedures were contained in § 1.924(f) and, therefore, inadvertently removed the Quiet Zone procedures for operation in the 420-450 MHz band. This document corrects the Quiet Zone procedures by re-inserting the procedures for operation in 420-450 MHz band into § 1.924(f) and lists the updated procedures for operation near GOES stations into § 1.924(g).

DATES:

Effective November 29, 2002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the FR Doc. 02-15373 published in the Federal Register on June 20, 2002, (67 FR 41847) the Commission updated the Quiet Zone procedures for operation near GOES stations. The document incorrectly indicated that the GOES procedures were contained in § 1.924(f). The GOES procedures are supposed to be listed in § 1.924(g). The Quiet Zone procedures listed in § 1.924(f) are intended for operation in the 420-450 MHz band. Therefore, the Federal Register publication inadvertently deleted the Quiet Zone procedures for operation in the 420-450 MHz band. The Quiet Zone procedures for operations near GOES stations are intended to apply only to operation in the 1670-1675 MHz band.

Therefore, the Quiet Zone procedures for operation in the 420-450 MHz band should be re-inserted into § 1.924(f) and Start Printed Page 71111the updated GOES procedures should be listed in § 1.924(g).
