Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Proposed rule; denial.


The Commission denies the request of Meadows Media, LLC, permittee of Station KTRL, Las Vegas, New Mexico, to substitute Channel 275C3 for Channel 275C2 at Las Vegas, the reallotment of Channel 275C3 to Rowe, as its first local aural service, and the modification of Station KTRL's construction permit accordingly. The Commission found that petitioner did not show that Rowe has sufficient community indicia to find that it is a community for allotment purposes. In addition, even if it were found to be a community for allotment purposes, the Commission found that the reallotment would not result in a preferential Start Printed Page 9683arrangement of allotments because it would result in a substantially larger number of people remaining underserved with only one fulltime reception service than would receive a first local aural service but already receive at least two fulltime aural services. See 65 FR 54192, September 15, 2000.
