ARLB074 Gate 4 attracts hundreds

The FCC does not expect to begin processing Gate 4 applications
until after the first of the year.  A spokesperson at the FCC's
Gettysburg office said the current plan is to run the first-day
applications on or about January 7, 1997, but emphasized that this
is not a firm date.

The FCC has processed earlier vanity receipts through mid-November,
including all work in process (WIPs) applications.  In November, the
FCC reports it got 517 electronic applications and 149 paper
applications.

The FCC reports it got more than 800 electronic applications on
December 2, the first day of Gate 4.  Another 120 electronic
applications showed up on December 3.  A count of paper applications
is not yet available.
