Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule; petition for reconsideration.


This Memorandum Opinion and Order partially grants two petitions for reconsideration of a Report and Order, 61 FR 42228 (August 14, 1996), and overturns that Report and Order. Start Printed Page 35589The document admits new evidence presented by Sampit Broadcasters (“SB”) and L.M. Communications II of South Carolina, Inc. (“LMC”) that demonstrates the availability of a transmitter site for LMC and that Sampit, South Carolina is a “community” for allotment purposes. Since both rulemaking proponents were found to be qualified to effectuate their mutually exclusive proposals, the proposals were compared to determine the winner. LMC's proposal to substitute Channel 288C2 for Channel 287C3 at Moncks Corner, South Carolina, reallot Channel 288C2 from Moncks Corner to Kiawah Island, South Carolina, and modify Station WNST(FM)'s license accordingly was preferred over SB's proposal to allot Channel 289A to Sampit, South Carolina. The new coordinates for LMC's transmitter site at Kiawah Island are: 32-38-57 NL and 80-02-11 WL.


Effective July 3, 2000.
