Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Chester P. Coleman substitutes Channel 234C1 for Channel 234C2 at Houston, Alaska, and modifies Station KADX's license to reflect the change. It also modifies the license of Ubik Corporation, licensee of Station KNIK-FM, Anchorage, Alaska, to specify operation on Channel 286C1 in lieu of the present Channel 287C1, after Ubik failed to respond to the Order to Show Cause issued to it to show cause why its license should not be so modified. Channel 234C1 is allotted at Houston, Alaska, consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of section 73.207(b) and the principal community coverage requirements of section 73.315(a) of the Commission's Rules at coordinates 61-29-03 NL and 149-45-52 WL, with a site restriction of 17.2 kilometers (10.7 miles) south of the community. Channel 286C1 is allotted at Anchorage, Alaska consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of section 73.207(b) and the principal community coverage requirements of section 73.315(a) of the Commission's Rules, at Station KNIK-FM's licensed site, at coordinates 61-11-33 NL and 149-54-01 WL, 2.8 kilometers (1.8 miles) south of the community.


Effective July 2, 2001.
