This collection establishes the processes by which the FCC will begin the licensing of digital television stations. It consists of two major parts: a) a requirement that existing licensees eligible for DTV licenses but who decide not to exercise this option notify the FCC of this intent; and b) a requirement that existing licensees submit a revised FCC form 301/340 with a new section V-D in order to be allocated the new spectrum for DTV. The FCC shall include the burden associated with the remaining broadcasters when it submits the collection again -- this collection only includes the burden associated with allocating the spectrum in ten markets.
