Final rule.


This document allots FM channels Big Lake, Texas (MB Docket No. 02-206), Leakey, Texas (MB Docket No. 02-207), and Vici, Oklahoma (MB Docket No. 02-205), in response to three separate petitions filed by Robert Fabian that were combined in a multiple Notice of Proposed Rule Making. See 67 FR 53901, August 20, 2002. The coordinates for Channel 249A at Vici, OK are 36-08-59 and 99-17-53. The coordinates for Channel 246A at Big Lake, Texas, are 31-11-33 and 101-20-53. The coordinates for Channel 275A at Leakey, Texas, are 29-41-30 and 99-50-07. Although Mexican concurrence has been requested for the allotments at Big Lake and Leakey, Texas, notification has not been received. Therefore, operation with the facilities specified for Big Lake and Leakey herein are subject to modification, suspension, or termination without right to hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary in order to conform to the 1992 USA-Mexico FM Broadcast Agreement or if specifically objected to by Mexico. With this action, this proceeding is terminated. A filing window for Channel 249A, Vici, OK, Channel 246A, Big Lake, TX and Channel 275A, Leakey, TX will not be opened at this time.
