This proceeding is considered a “permit but disclose” proceeding for purposes of the Commission’s ex

parte rules.1 Persons making ex parte presentations must file a copy of any written presentation or a

1 47 C.F.R. §§ 1.1200 et seq.


memorandum summarizing any oral presentation within two business days after the presentation (unless a

different deadline applicable to the Sunshine period applies). Persons making oral ex parte presentations

are reminded that memoranda summarizing the presentation must (1) list all persons attending or

otherwise participating in the meeting at which the ex parte presentation was made, and (2) summarize all

data presented and arguments made during the presentation. If the presentation consisted in whole or in

part of the presentation of data or arguments already reflected in the presenter’s written comments,

memoranda or other filings in the proceeding, the presenter may provide citations to such data or

arguments in his or her prior comments, memoranda, or other filings (specifying the relevant page and/or

paragraph numbers where such data or arguments can be found) in lieu of summarizing them in the

memorandum. Documents shown or given to Commission staff during ex parte meetings are deemed to

be written ex parte presentations and must be filed consistent with rule 1.1206(b). In proceedings

governed by rule 1.49(f) or for which the Commission has made available a method of electronic filing,

written ex parte presentations and memoranda summarizing oral ex parte presentations, and all

attachments thereto, must be filed through the electronic comment filing system available for that

proceeding, and must be filed in their native format (e.g., .doc, .xml, .ppt, searchable .pdf). Participants in

this proceeding should familiarize themselves with the Commission’s ex parte rules.

The original filing is available for inspection and copying at the FCC Public Reference Room, Portals II,
