Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Sutton Radiocasting Corporation, allots Channel 237A to Dillsboro, NC, as the community's first local aural service. See 65 FR 34997, June 1, 2000. Channel 237A can be allotted to Dillsboro in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 14.5 kilometers (9 miles) southeast, at coordinates 35-15-56 NL; 83-09-16 WL, to avoid a short-spacing to Stations WIKQ, Channel 235C, Greeneville, TN, and WYFC, Channel 237A, Clinton, TN. The counterproposal of Chase Broadcasting, Inc. to allot Channel 237A to Rosman, NC, as its first local aural service, is dismissed. A filing window for Channel 237A at Dillsboro 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 December 11, 2000.
