By the Chief, Video Division:
1. The Commission has before it a petition for rule making filed by Siete Grande
Television, Inc. ("Siete Grande"), licensee of station WSTE-TV, DTV channel 66, Ponce, Puerto
Rico. Siete Grande requests the substitution of DTV channel 8 for WSTE's assigned DTV channel
2. Siete Grande states that channel 66 is outside the core television spectrum and as a
result, it will eventually need to transition WSTE-DT to an in-core channel. Siete Grande
maintains that such a transition will impose an unnecessary burden upon Siete Grande by requiring
it to construct a second DTV facility for WSTE-DT during the DTV transition. Siete Grande also
proposes to co-locate DTV channel 8 with its analog channel at a new site. It asserts that since a
suitable DTV channel is currently available, adoption of its proposal will eliminate the need for
transition to a new DTV channel at a later date.
3. We believe Siete Grande's proposal warrants consideration. DTV Channel 8 can be
substituted for DTV Channel 66 at Ponce, Puerto Rico, as proposed, in compliance with the
principle community coverage requirements of Section 73.625(a) with a "c" designation at
coordinates 18-02-52 N. and 66-39-16 W. In addition, we find that this channel change is
acceptable under the 2 percent criterion for de minimis interference that is applied in evaluating
requests for modification of initial DTV allotments under Section 73.623(c)(2). We propose to
substitute DTV Channel 8c for DTV Channel 66 for station WSTE-DT at Ponce with the following
