Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Dana Puopolo, allots Channel 256A to Whitefield, NH, as the community's first local aural service. See 64 FR 7841, February 17, 1999. Channel 256A can be allotted to Whitefield in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 10.9 kilometers (6.8 miles) northeast, at coordinates 44-27-17 NL; 71-31-36 WL, to avoid a short-spacing to Station WOKO, Channel 255C1, Burlington, VT. Canadian concurrence in the allotment has been obtained since Whitefield is located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border. The counterproposal filed by Barry P. Lunderville to allot Channel 256A to Northumberland, NH, is denied based on a finding that Northumberland is not a community for allotment purposes. A filing window for Channel 256A at Whitefield will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening a filing window for this channel will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order.


Effective July 10, 2000.
