Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Mountain Tower Broadcasting, dismisses the petition for rulemaking requesting the allotment of Channel 259C at Saratoga, Wyoming, and grants the counterproposal filed by Mount Rushmore Broadcasting, Inc. requesting the allotment of Channel 259A at Saratoga, as the community's first aural transmission service and the allotment of Channel 259C1 at Green River, Wyoming, as the community's second FM transmission service. It also dismisses as moot the request of Robert R. Rule d/b/a Rule Communications requesting that a site restriction be placed on Channel 259C at Saratoga, to clear its application for Station KRRR(FM) Cheyenne, Wyoming. See 63 FR 39803 (July 24, 1998) (MM Docket No. 98-130). This document also dismisses as defective the petition for rule making filed by Mountain West Broadcasting (MM Docket No. 99-56) 64 FR 08786 (February 23, 1999), requesting the allotment of Channel 259C at Big Piney, Wyoming because it was short-spaced to Channel 259C1 at Green River when it was filed. Counterproposals for Channels 251A at Big Piney and 261A at La Barge, Wyoming filed in response to the dismissed Big Piney proposal will be considered as petitions for rule making in a separate proceeding. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION.


Effective June 26, 2000.
