Proposed rule.


The Commission requests comments on a petition filed by Red River Broadcast Company, licensee of Start Printed Page 45744station KJRR(TV), NTSC Channel 7, Jamestown, North Dakota, requesting the substitution of DTV Channel 30 for station KRJJ(TV)'s assigned DTV Channel 14. DTV Channel 14 can be allotted to Jamestown, North Dakota, in compliance with the principle community coverage requirements of section 73.625(a) at reference coordinates (46-55-30 N. and 98-46-21 W.). However, since the community of Jamestown is located 400 kilometers of the U.S.-Canadian border, concurrence by the Canadian government must be obtained for this proposal. As requested, we propose to allot DTV Channel 30 to Jamestown with a power of 1000 and a height above average terrain (HAAT) of 135 meters.


Comments must be filed on or before September 11, 2000, and reply comments on or before September 26, 2000.
