Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of WEBO Radio, Inc., reallots Channel 269A from Owego to Johnson City, NY, as the community's first local aural service, and modifies the license of Station WLTB to specify Johnson City as its community of license. See 64 FR 37924, July 14, 1999. Channel 269A can be allotted to Johnson City in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 6.4 kilometers (4.0 miles) south, at coordinates 42-03-44 North Latitude and 75-56-37 West Longitude, to avoid a short-spacing to Station WXHC, Channel 268A, Homer, NY, and to accommodate petitioner's desired transmitter site. Canadian concurrence in the allotment has been obtained since Johnson City is located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border.


Effective April 10, 2000.
