ACTION:

Correcting amendments.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) published a document in the Federal Register of September 5, 2012. In this document, the FCC on its own motion, pursuant to § 1.108 of the Commission's rules, corrects the channel center frequencies to align the wider 60 and 80 megahertz channels with the existing 30 and 40 megahertz channels in part 101 of our rules in the Wireless Backhaul 2nd R&O and issues this limited modification of the Wireless Backhaul 2nd R&O, in order to establish more efficient channel assignments, consistent with the Commission's intent to improve spectrum utilization in these bands. In addition, the FCC corrects an entry to the table in § 101.115(b)(2).

DATES:

Effective December 12, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This is a summary of the Commission's Order, adopted on October 4, 2012 and released on October 5, 2012, FCC 12-122, correcting § 101.147 of the Commission's final rules adopted in the Wireless Backhaul 2nd R&O, FCC 12-87, published at 77 FR 54421 (September 5, 2012). The table under Frequency assignments, §§ 101.147(i)(9) and 101.147(o)(8) were incorrect and an entry to the table under Directional antennas in § 101.115(b)(2) is incorrect. This document makes the following corrections.
