Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule; petition for reconsideration.


This document denies a petition for reconsideration of a Report and Order Order, 63 FR 49684 (September 17, 1998), that denied a petition for rule making and the alternative allotment plan filed by Thunderbolt Broadcasting Company (“Thunderbolt”) proposing the substitution of Channel 267C3 for Channel 269A at Martin, Tennessee. To accommodate its proposal to upgrade Station WCMT(FM)'s Channel 269A to Channel 267C3 at Martin, Thunderbolt also proposed to substitute Channel 247A for Channel 267C3 at Tiptonville, Tennessee and to substitute Channel 249C3 for Channel 248C3 at Trenton, Tennessee. These alternate proposals were rejected because engineering studies determined that retaining Channel 267C3 at Tiptonville would result in service to many more people than allotting Channel 267C3 to Martin.
