Proposed rule. Order to Show Cause.


The Commission requests comment on a petition for rulemaking filed by Chester P. Coleman, licensee of Station KADX(FM), Houston, Alaska, proposing the substitution of Channel 234C1 for Channel 234C2 at Houston, Alaska, and the modification of Station KADX's license to reflect the change. To accommodate the change the petition also proposes the substitution of Channel 286C1 for Channel 287C1 at Anchorage, Alaska, and the modification of the license of Station KNIK-FM, Anchorage, to specify the new channel. Ubix Corporation, licensee of Station KNIK-FM, is ordered to show cause why Channel 286C1 should not be substituted for Channel 287C1 at Houston, and must respond by the comment deadline specified below. Channel 234C1 can be allotted at Houston in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, with respect to domestic allotments, at a site 17.2 kilometers (10.7 miles) south of the community at coordinates 61-29-03 NL and 149-45-52 WL.
