Federal Communications Commission.
The Commission requests comments on a petition filed by Campbell River Broadcasting, LLC, seeking the allotment of Channel 254C1 to Hawthorne, NV, as the community's second local FM channel. Channel 254C1 can be allotted to Hawthorne in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements without the imposition of a site restriction, at coordinates 38-31-29 NL; 118-37-25 WL. On the Commission's own motion, the Notice of Proposed Rule Making also proposes to delete unoccupied and unapplied-for Channel 228A at Hawthorne unless an expression of interest in activating the channel is received by the initial comment period.
Comments must be filed on or before October 2, 2000, and reply comments on or before October 17, 2000.
