Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


This document grants a Petition for Reconsideration of the Report and Order in this proceeding, 66 FR 21680, May 1, 2001, as requested by Circle S Broadcasting Co., Inc., licensee of Station KSWG (FM), Channel 231C3, Wickenburg, Arizona, to the extent it substitutes Channel 242C3 for Channel 231C3 and modifies its license accordingly, rather than the allotment of Channel 242C3 at Wickenburg as that community's third local FM transmission service. The substitution and modification at Wickenburg is preferred over the allotment of Channel 242C3 for general application based upon the original proponent's withdrawal of interest, and the failure of any other party to express an interest therein. Coordinates used for Channel 242C3 at Wickenburg remain as specified in the Report and Order. Allotments made in the context of this proceeding at Bagdad and Aguila, Arizona, remain unchanged. Additionally, as Wickenburg is located Start Printed Page 46400within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the US-Mexico border, concurrence of the Mexican government to this allotment was requested, but has not been received. Therefore, the allotment of Channel 242C3 at Wickenburg is conditioned on concurrence of the Mexican government in accordance with the 1992 USA-Mexico M Broadcast Agreement.


Effective October 9, 2001.
