Federal Communications Commission.


Proposed rule.


The Commission requests comments on a petition filed by McCook Radio Group, LLC, requesting the allotment of Channel 271C1 to McCook, NE, as the community's fifth local FM service. Channel 271C1 can be allotted to McCook in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 19.6 kilometers (12.2 miles) west, at coordinates 40-12-00 NL; 100-51-25 WL, to avoid a short-spacing to Station KKQY, Channel 270C1, Hill City, KS, and the pending application of Station KRNY, Channel 272C1, Kearney, NE. The Commission also proposes to editorially amend the FM Table of Allotments by substituting Channel 253C1 for Channel 253C2 at McCook to reflect the action taken pursuant to the one-step application (BMPH-19990301IC) of McCook Media Association specifying the higher class channel.


Comments must be filed on or before March 6, 2000, and reply comments on or before March 21, 2000.
