Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Professional Broadcasting, Inc. allots Channel 238A at Indian Wells, California, as the community's first local aural transmission service. See 63 FR 12426 (March 13, 1998). The Commission considers comparatively and denies a petition filed by Elia Tawil proposing to allot Channel 238A at Indio, California, as the community's fourth aural transmission service, and to reserve the channel as a noncommercial educational channel. It also dismisses as technically and procedurally defective a pleading filed by Playa Del Sol Broadcasters, permittee of an unbuilt station on Channel 249A in Mecca, California, requesting the allotment of Channel 238A at Mecca, California, reallotment of Channel 249A from Mecca to Indian Wells, California, and modification of its permit for unbuilt station in Mecca to reflect the new community. Channel 238A can be allotted to Indian Wells in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, with respect to domestic allotments, at a site 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) east, at coordinates 33-42-04 North Latitude and 116-14-47 West Longitude. A filing window for Channel 238A at Indian Wells, California, will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening filing windows for this channel will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent Order. With this Order, this proceeding is terminated.


Effective January 22, 2000.
