Act of 2002, Public Law 107-198, see 44 U.S.C. 3506 (c)(4).
    The Provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 do not 
apply to this proceeding. Members of the public should note that from 
the time a Notice of Proposed Rule Making is issued until the matter is 
no longer subject to Commission consideration or court review, all ex 
parte contacts are prohibited in Commission proceedings, such as this 
one, which involve channel allotments. See 47 CFR 1.1204(b) for rules 
governing permissible ex parte contacts.
    For information regarding proper filing procedures for comments,
