Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Darren Cordova, allots Channel 240A to Taos, NM, as the community's third local FM service. See 64 FR 47484, August 31, 1999. Channel 240A can be allotted to Taos in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 9.7 kilometers (6.0 miles) southeast, at coordinates 36-21-48 NL; 105-28-51 WL, to avoid a short-spacing to the proposed allotment of Channel 240A at Chama, NM. See, MM Docket 99-116, 64 FR 23036, April 29, 1999. A filing window for Channel 240A at Taos will not be opened at this time.
