The Audio Division, at the request of Powerline NA, Inc., allots Channel 298A at Jasper, Florida, as the community's first local FM transmission service. See 67 FR 63876, October 16, 2002. Channel 298A can be allotted to Jasper in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction 2.2 kilometers (1.4 miles) northwest of the community to avoid a short-spacing to the vacant allotment site of Channel 299C3, Perry, Florida. The reference coordinates for Channel 298A at Jasper are 30-31-49 North Latitude and 82-57-58 West Longitude. The Audio Division, at the request of Starboard Broadcasting, Inc. allots Channel 295A at Tigerton, Wisconsin, as the community's first local FM transmission service. See 67 FR 63876, October 16, 2002. Channel 295A can be allotted to Tigerton in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 14.1 kilometers (8.7 miles) northeast to avoid a short-spacing to the license sites of Station WLJY, Channel 293C1, Marshfield, Wisconsin, Station WJLW, Channel 294C3, Allouez, Wisconsin, and Station WUPM, Channel 295C1, Ironwood, Michigan. The reference coordinates for Channel 295A at Tigerton are 44-50-07 North Latitude and 88-56-41 West Longitude. Filing windows for Channel 298A at Jasper, Florida and Channel 295A at Tigerton, Wisconsin, will not be opened at this time.
