Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


In response to a proposal filed on behalf of Channel 11, License, Inc., permittee of Station KRII, Channel 11, International Falls, Minnesota, the Commission reallots Channel 11 from International Falls to Chisholm, Minnesota, as that community's first local television transmission service and modifies the authorization for Station KRII (File No. BPCT-19960709KR) accordingly, pursuant to the provisions of Section 1.420(i) of the Commission's Rules. See 66 FR 20224, April 20, 2001. The DTV Table contained in Section 73.622(b) of the Commission's Rules is not affected by the requested reallotment as there is no paired DTV channel for Station KRII's authorization. Coordinates used for Channel 11 at Chisholm are 47-51-39 NL and 92-56-43 WL. Additionally, as Chisholm is located within 400 kilometers (250 miles) of the U.S.-Canada border, concurrence of the Canadian government to this allotment was requested but has not been received. Therefore, the allotment of Channel 11 at Chisholm is conditioned on concurrence of the Canadian government in accordance with the 1994 U.S.-Canada TV Agreement. With this action, this docketed proceeding is terminated.


Effective November 19, 2001.
