The Order amends § 0.121(b) of the rules to update the geographical coordinate locations of the Commission's protected field installations where radio spectrum monitoring operations are conducted. Specifically, the Order adds the geographical coordinates of the Commission's new Kenai, Alaska monitoring facility to the list of protected field installations set forth in § 0.121(b) of the rules. These locations are protected from harmful radio frequency interference to the Commission's monitoring activities that could be produced by the proximity of any nearby radio transmitting facilities.
Accordingly, pursuant to the authority contained in sections 4(i) and (5) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and § 0.231(b) of the rules, part 0 of the rules is amended as set forth in the rule changes.
As the rule amendment adopted in the Order pertains to agency organization, procedure and practice, the notice and comment provision of the Administrative Procedure Act contained in 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is inapplicable.
The rule amendment set forth in the rule changes will become effective October 17, 2003.Start List of Subjects
