Proposed rule.


The Commission requests comments on a petition filed by Point Broadcasting, permittee of unbuilt station on Channel 296B1, Point Arena, CA, requesting to substitute Channel 296A for Channel 296B1 at Point Arena, reallot Channel 296A from Point Arena to Cloverdale, CA and modify its construction permit to specify the Class A channel. In view of the fact that our resolution of this proceeding may affect the outcome of MM Docket No. 99-180, it may be necessary ultimately to combine these dockets into a single Report and Order. Channel 296A can be allotted to Cloverdale, CA in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements at petitioner's specified site 0.8 kilometers (0.5 miles) south of the community at coordinates 38-48-00 and 123-01-00.


Comments must be filed on or before May 22, 2000, and reply comments on or before June 6, 2000.
