Re: Application FCC File No. 0005098263 to Modify License for Station WPUX466
Dear Mr. Healy:
This letter addresses the petition1 that you filed on April 20, 2012 on behalf of Boyd Gaming
Corporation (Boyd) seeking reconsideration of the dismissal of the above-referenced application. For the
reasons stated below, we deny the petition.
On March 1, 2012, Boyd filed an application to modify its license for private land mobile radio
(PLMR) Station WPUX466 by relocating the center coordinates of the mobile operating area and
increasing the service radius from three kilometers to thirty-two kilometers, and adding a narrowband
emission designator to the existing wideband emission designator. Section 90.209(b)(6)(ii) of the
Commission’s Rules provides that, beginning January 1, 2011, no modification application that increases
a wideband PLMR station’s interference contour will be acceptable for filing.2 Because the application
proposed to increase Boyd’s wideband interference contour, it was dismissed on April 17, 2012.3
In the petition for reconsideration, you state that Boyd’s frequency coordinator should have
deleted the wideband emission designator rather than simply adding a narrowband emission designator.
You ask that we delete the wideband emission designator from the application and reprocess it
We conclude that your application was properly dismissed. Because of the large number of
applications reviewed by the Commission, an applicant must be responsible for the accuracy and
adequacy of any submission of any submission made on its behalf.4 The applicant, whether acting
directly or through an agent, is responsible for ensuring that its application is complete.5 Consequently,
we deny the petition for reconsideration. This action is without prejudice to Boyd filing a new application
to modify its license for Station WPUX466 by relocating the center coordinates of the mobile operating

emission designator.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to Section 4(i) of the Communications Act of 1934,
