Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Blue Sky Broadcasting, LLC, allots Channel 248A to Bristol, VT, as the community's first local aural service. See 64 FR 3996, July 23, 1999. Channel 248A can be allotted to Bristol in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, with respect to domestic allotments, without the imposition of a site restriction, at coordinates 44-08-18 NL; 73-05-00 WL. Canadian concurrence in the allotment, as a specially negotiated short-spaced allotment, has been received since Bristol is located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border and the allotment will be short-spaced to Station CHOM-FM, Channel 249C1, Montreal, Quebec. A filing window for Channel 248A at Bristol 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 October 16, 2000.


Federal Communications Commission, Washington, D.C. 20554.
