Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Radio Elberton, Inc., reallots Channel 221A from Elberton, GA, to Lavonia, GA, as the community's first local aural service, and modifies Station WWRK-FM's license accordingly. Channel 221A can be allotted to Lavonia in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 12.5 kilometers (7.8 miles) west, at coordinates 34-27-26 NL; 83-14-27 WL, to accommodate petitioner's desired transmitter site. This action found that the public interest was better served by the provision of a first local aural service for the more populous community of Lavonia than by the mutually exclusive proposal of Waves of Mercy Productions, Inc., to provide a first local aural service on noncommercial educational FM Channel 220A at Pendergrass, GA (BPED-1990630MB). See 64 FR 70672, December 17, 1999.


Effective August 28, 2000.


Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC 20554
