Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


In response to a petition filed by Keith L. Reising a Notice of Proposed Rule Making was issued proposing the allotment of Channel 224A at Everglades City, Florida. See 62 FR 22900, April 28, 1997. In response to a counterproposal filed by InterMart Broadcasting West Coast, Inc., this document substitutes Channel 223C3 for Channel 223A at LaBelle, Florida, reallots Channel 223C3 to Estero, Florida, and modifies the license for Station WWWD to specify Estero as its community of license. The coordinates for Chanel 223C3 at Estero are 26-21-50 and 81-46-00. To accommodate the channel at Estero, we have substituted Channel 224C1 for Channel 223C1 at Key West, Florida, and modified the license for Station WEOW accordingly. The coordinates for Channel 224C1 at Key West are 24-40-35 and 81-30-41. The proposal for Everglades City is dismissed as it has been determined that a first local service at Estero will serve a larger population than an allotment at Everglades City. With this action, this proceeding is terminated.


Effective July 17, 2000.
