Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Peter George, allots Channel 254A to Stratford, NH, as the community's first local aural service. See 64 FR 14429, May 21, 1999. Channel 254A can be allotted to Stratford in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 8.6 kilometers (5.3 miles) north, at coordinates 44-43-54 NL; 71-34-10 WL, to avoid a short-spacing to vacant and unapplied-for Channel 256A at Whitefield, NH. Canadian concurrence in the allotment has been obtained since Stratford is located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border. The petition and counterproposal filed by Barry P. Lunderville to allot Channel 254A to Lincoln, NH, is dismissed for failure to comply with the subscription and verification requirements of Section 1.52 of the Commission's Rules. A filing window for Channel 254A at Stratford 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 24, 2000.
