Tentative Digital Channel Designations for Stations Participating in the First Round of DTV Channel Elections and Second Round Election Filing Deadline In the Second DTV Periodic Review Report and Order, the Commission adopted a multi- step channel election process through which the nation’s full- power television broadcast licensees and permittees (licensees) will select their ultimate DTV channel inside the core (i. e., channels 2- 51). In the first round, licensees with in- core channels (either one or two in- core channels) filed First Round Election Forms by February 10, 2005, selecting which of their assigned channels they wished to use for digital operations. In this Public Notice we announce 1,713 tentative channel designations based upon these First Round Channel Elections. This list includes the 1,554 channel designations previously announced, which included stations that are participating in approved Negotiated Channel Arrangements. The attached list adds stations that have successfully resolved interference conflicts. The call sign and tentative DTV channel designation for each licensee are set forth in Attachment I (see attached files, below). Tentative channel designations in the relevant border zones are subject to appropriate international coordination. Licensees without a tentative channel designation at this time will receive tentative designations later in the channel election process.
