SUMMARY:

The Commission requests comments on a petition filed by Helen Jones proposing the allotment of Channel 281A at Murrieta, California, as the community's first local aural transmission service. Channel 281A can be allotted at Murrieta in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of with respect to all domestic allotments, with a site restriction of 5.2 kilometers (3.2 miles) east to avoid a short-spacing to the licensed site of Station KBIG-FM, Channel 282B, Los Angeles, California. The coordinates for Channel 281A at Murrieta are 33-32-55 North Latitude and 117-09-26 West Longitude. The allotment will result in a short-spacing to Station XHBA-FM, Channel 281C, Mexicali, BN, Mexico. Therefore, since Murrieta is located within 320. kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexican border, concurrence in the allotment as a specially-negotiated, short-spaced allotment will be sought from the Mexican government.
