SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This is a synopsis of the Commission's consolidated Report and Order, MM Docket No. 00-208; MM Docket No. 00-209; MM Docket No. 00-211, adopted March 7, 2001, and released March 16, 2001. The full text of this Commission decision is available for inspection and copying during normal business hours in the FCC's Reference Information Center (Room CY-A257) 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Washington, DC. The complete text of this decision may also be purchased from the Commission's copy contractor, International Transcription Service, Inc., 1231 20th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20036, (202) 857-3800.

The Commission, at the request of Santa Cruz Broadcasting, allots Channel 232A to Huachuca City, Arizona, as the community's first local aural transmission service. See 65 FR 67689, November 13, 2000. Channel 232A is allotted to Huachucha City with a site restriction 10.9 kilometers (6.8 miles) southwest at coordinates 31-32-30 NL and 110-23-20 WL. Additionally, as Huachuca City is located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexico border, concurrence to the allotment of Channel 232A to that community by the Mexican government has been requested, as a specially negotiated, restricted allotment, but has not been received. Therefore, if a construction permit is granted prior to receipt of formal concurrence in the allotment by the Mexican government, the authorization will include the following condition: “Operation with the facilities specified herein is subject to modification, suspension or termination without right to a hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary in order to conform to the USA-Mexico FM Broadcast Agreement.”

The Commission, at the request of Santa Cruz Broadcasting, allots Channel 300A to Rio Rico, Arizona, as the community's first local aural transmission service. See 65 FR 67689, November 13, 2000. Channel 300A is allotted to Rio Rico without a site restriction at coordinates 31-24-00 NL and 110-57-30 WL. Additionally, as Rio Rico is located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexico border, concurrence to the allotment of Channel 300A to that community by the Mexican government has been requested, as a specially negotiated, restricted allotment, but has not been received. Therefore, if a construction permit is granted prior to receipt of formal concurrence in the allotment by the Mexican government, the authorization will include the following condition: “Operation with the facilities specified herein is subject to modification, suspension or termination without right to a hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary in order to conform to the USA-Mexico FM Broadcast Agreement.”

The Commission, at the request of Susannah Lane Hodges, allots Channel 248A to Pine Level, Alabama, as the community's first local aural transmission service. See 65 FR 67690, November 13, 2000.
