Proposed rule.


This document requests comments on a petition for rule making filed on behalf of Galaxy Communications, L.P., licensee of Station WTKV(FM), Channel 288A, Oswego, New York, requesting the reallotment of Channel 288A from Oswego to Granby, New York, and modification of its authorization accordingly, pursuant to the provisions of Section 1.420(i) of the Commission's Rules. Coordinates used for requested Channel 288A at Granby, New York are 43-17-00 and 76-25-00. Canadian concurrence in the allotment must be obtained because Granby is located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border.

Petitioner's reallotment proposal complies with the provisions of Section 1.420(i) of the Commission's Rules, and therefore, the Commission will not accept competing expressions of interest in the use of Channel 288A at Granby, New York, or require the petitioner to demonstrate the availability of an additional equivalent class channel.


Comments must be filed on or before November 6, 2000, and reply comments on or before November 21, 2000.


Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 12th Street, S.W., Room TW-A325, Washington, DC 20554.
