The Commission, at the request of New Testament Christian Ministries and Little Valley Wireless, allots Channel 290A to Little Valley, NY, as the community's first local aural service. The Commission also dismisses the request of New Testament Christian Ministries to allot Channel 290A to Randolph, NY, as its first local aural service. See 65 FR 47370, August 2, 2000. Channel 290A can be allotted to Little Valley in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, with respect to all domestic allotments, without the imposition of a site restriction, at coordinates 42-15-08 NL; 78-48-20. A filing window for Channel 290A at Little Valley 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. See Supplementary Information.

Channel 290A can be allotted to Little Valley in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, with respect to all domestic allotments, without the imposition of a site restriction, at coordinates 42-15-08 NL; 78-48-20. The allotment, however, is short-spaced to Station CHRE-FM, Channel 289B, St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada. Canadian concurrence, as a specially-negotiated short-spaced allotment was requested in September, 2000, but has not yet been received. Little Valley is located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border. However, rather than delay any further the opportunity to file applications for this channel, we will allot Channel 290A to Little Valley at this time. If a construction permit is granted prior to the receipt of formal concurrence in the allotment by the Canadian Government, the construction permit will include the following condition: “Operation with the facilities specified herein is subject to modification, suspension, or termination without right to hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary in order to conform to the USA-Canadian FM Broadcast Agreement.”Start List of Subjects
