The Commission, at the request of Holly Springs Radio, allots Channel 243A at Holly Springs, Mississippi, as the community's fourth local aural transmission service. See 66 FR 47433 September 12, 2001). Channel 243A can be allotted at Holly Springs in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 12.6 kilometers (7.9 miles) southwest of Holly Springs. The coordinates for Channel 243A at Holly Springs are 34-41-32 North Latitude and 89-32-33 West Longitude.

The Commission, at the request of McBain Broadcasting Company, allots Channel 300A at McBain, Michigan, as the community's first local aural transmission service. See 66 FR 47433 (September 12, 2001). Channel 300A can be allotted to McBain in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 9.1 kilometers (5.6 miles) east of McBain. The coordinates for Channel 300A at McBain are 44-12-09 North Latitude and 85-06-02 West Longitude. Since McBain is located within 320 kilometers of the U.S.-Canadian border, concurrence of the Canadian Government in this allotment has been requested. Notification in this regard has not been received. Accordingly, any construction permit that is granted prior to the receipt of formal concurrence of the Candian government will include the following condition: “Operation with the facilities specified herein is subject to modification, suspension, or termination without right to hearing, if specifically objected to by Industry Canada. This condition will be removed once formal approval for the allotment is received from Industry Canada.”
