Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


In response to a proposal filed on behalf of Circle S Broadcasting, Inc. (“Circle S”), licensee of Station KSWG(FM), Wickenburg, Arizona, the Audio Division substitutes Channel 242C for Channel 242C3 at Wickenburg and modifies the authorization for Station KSWG(FM) accordingly. Additionally, this document substitutes Channel 270A for vacant Channel 241A at Salome, Arizona, to accommodate the Wickenburg modification as requested by Circle S. See 67 FR 851, January 8, 2002. A counterproposal filed jointly on behalf of Circle S and Wickenburg Associates, LLC was withdrawn. Coordinates used for Channel 242C at Wickenburg, Arizona, are those of the petitioner's specified transmitter site located 24.6 kilometers (15.3 miles) west of the community at coordinates 33-54-15 NL and 112-59-02 WL. Coordinates used for Channel 270A at Salome are 33-46-54 NL and 113-36-42 WL, representing a site restriction 0.1 kilometer (0.04 mile) north of the community. As Wickenburg and Salome are each located within 320 kilometers of the U.S.-Mexico border, concurrence of the Mexican government to the specified allotments was requested, but has not been received. Therefore, the allotment of Channel 242C at Wickenburg and Channel 270A at Salome are conditioned on concurrence of the Mexican government in accordance with the 1992 USA-Mexico FM Broadcast Agreement. With this Start Printed Page 21582action, this docketed proceeding is terminated.


Effective June 3, 2002. A filing window for Channel 270A at Salome, Arizona, will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening this allotment for auction will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent Order.
