Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


This document allots Channel 281A to Murrieta, California, as a first local aural service in response to a rulemaking petition filed by Helen Jones. See 66 FR 8559, February 1, 2001. The coordinates for Channel 281A at Murrieta are 33-32-55 and 117-09-26. The document also denies a counterproposal filed by Big City Radio-LA, L.L.C., to upgrade Station KLYY(FM), Arcadia, California, from Channel 296A to Channel 296B1. To accommodate the upgrade, the counterproposal also proposed to substitute 281A for Channel 296A for Station KSYY(FM), Fallbrook California, and to downgrade, reallot, and change the community of license of Station KYOR(FM), Channel 295B, Yucca Valley, California, to Channel 295B1 at Desert Hot Springs, California. The staff reasoned that the counterproposal could not be granted because the Commission's policies and rules do not permit pre-1964 grandfathered, short-spaced stations such as KLYY(FM) to upgrade channel class with short-spacings to stations on second or third adjacent FM channels.


Effective November 25, 2002.
