Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Commission has before it a petition for rulemaking filed by Gray Television Licensee, LLC (“Gray”), licensee of WEAU-TV, channel 13, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, requesting the substitution of channel 38 for channel 13 at Eau Claire. The tower holding WEAU-TV's main antenna collapsed on March 22, 2011, which Gray must rebuild and also replace the station's transmission equipment. In addition, viewers have reported difficulties receiving the station's digital signal on channel 13 since the end of the digital transition. Substituting channel 38 for channel 13 will allow Gray to leverage the significant and unplanned cost of rebuilding the station.

DATES:

Effective August 11, 2011.
