Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Univision Television Group, substitutes channel 17 for channel 52+ at Blanco, Texas. See 67 FR 60205, September 25, 2002. TV channel 17 can be allotted to Blanco, Texas, with a zero offset. Since the community of Blanco is located within 275 kilometers of the U.S.-Mexican border, concurrence from the Mexican government has been obtained this allotment. The coordinates for channel 17 at Blanco are North Latitude 29-42-58 and West Longitude 98-30-39. Due to a short spacing, to land mobile channel 17 at Houston, Texas, the use of channel 17 Blanco, Texas, includes a condition. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for condition details. With this action, this proceeding is terminated.


Effective February 3, 2003.
