Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Central Michigan University, allots DTV channel *23 at Traverse City, Michigan. See 67 FR 6905, February 14, 2002. DTV channel *23 can be allotted to Traverse City in compliance with the geographic spacing criteria of Section 73.623(d) and the principle community coverage requirements of Section 73.625(a) at coordinates (45-10-40 N. and 85-05-57 W). Due to a short-spacing conflict, the Canadian government has concurred with the allotment of DTV channel *23 as a specially negotiated allotment limited to l kW ERP and 390 meter HAAT or the equivalent in order to avoid prohibited overlap in the direction of DTV channel 23B at Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. With this action, this proceeding is terminated.


Effective February 3, 2003.
