Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Bible Broadcasting Associates, allots Channel 264A to Minerva, NY, as the community's first local aural service. See 64 FR 70671, December 17, 1999. Channel 264A can be allotted to Minerva in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 2.9 kilometers (1.8 miles) northwest, at coordinates 43-48-33 NL; 74-00-41 WL, to avoid a short-spacing to Station WKBE, Channel 262B1, Warrensburg, NY, and Station WWFY, Channel 265A, Middlebury, VT. Channel 264A at Minerva, at the reference coordinates, is short-spaced to Station CBF-FM, Channel 264C1, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Therefore, since Minerva is located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border, concurrence by the Canadian Government in the allotment, as a specially negotiated, short-spaced allotment, has been obtained. A filing window for Channel 264A at Minerva 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 August 21, 2000.
