Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Madras Broadcasting, allots Channel 251C1 at Madras, Oregon as the community's first local aural transmission service, substitutes Channel 253C3 for Channel 252C3 at Bend, Oregon, and modifies the license of Station KTWS(FM) to specify the alternate Class C3 channel, and substitutes Channel 255C3 for unoccupied and unapplied-for Channel 254C3 at Prineville, Oregon. It denies the request of Muddy Broadcasting Company proposing the allotment of Channel 251C3 at Brightwood, Oregon, which initiated this proceeding. See 65 FR 34997 (June 1, 2000). Channel 251C1 can be allotted at Madras consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of Section 73.207 of the Commission's Rules at a site 36.6 kilometers (22.7 miles) northeast of the community. The reference coordinates for Channel 251C1 at Madras, Oregon are 44-50-02 NL and 120-45-55 WL. Channel 253C3 is substituted for Channel 252C3 at Bend consistent with the Commission's Rules at Station KTWS(FM)'s licensed site. The coordinates for Channel 252C3 at Bend, Oregon are 44-04-41 NL and 121-19-57 WL. Channel 255C3 is substituted for Channel 254C3 at Prineville at the vacant allotment site. The coordinates for Channel 255C3 at Prineville, Oregon are 44-13-30 NL and 120-46-30 WL. A filing window for Channel 251C1 at Madras will not be opened at this time.
