Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


This document allots Channel 246A to Pittsburg, New Hampshire, as that community's first local aural transmission service, in response to a petition for rule making filed on behalf of Pittsburg Broadcasting Company. See 66 FR 41490, August 8, 2001. Coordinates used for Channel 246A at Pittsburg, New Hampshire, are 45-02-25 NL and 71-21-17 WL. As Pittsburg is located within 320 kilometers of the U.S.-Canada border, concurrence of the Canadian government has been requested for Channel 246A at Pittsburg, but has not been received. Therefore, if a construction permit is granted for Channel 246A at Pittsburg, New Hampshire, prior to receipt of final notification by the Canadian government, the construction permit 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 Canada-USA FM Broadcast Agreement, or if specifically objected to by Industry Canada.” With this action, this docketed proceeding is terminated.


Effective December 24, 2001. A filing window for Channel 246A at Pittsburg, New Hampshire, will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening the allotment for auction will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent Order.
