Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


This document consolidates two rulemaking proceedings and allots Channel 257C3 to Saint Joseph, Louisiana, and Channel 300C3 to Wisner, Louisiana, as first local services. To accommodate the Saint Joseph allotment, the document also substitutes Channel 2666A for vacant Channel 257A at Clayton, Louisiana. See 66 FR 10267, February 14, 2001, and 66 FR 10659, February 16, 2001. This document also dismisses a counterproposal to upgrade Station KNBB(FM), Ruston, Louisiana, from Channel 257C3 to Channel 257C2, because it was not technically correct upon the date when it was filed. Rather, it was contingent on the dismissal of a counterproposal in an earlier rulemaking. The coordinates for Channel 257C3 at Saint Joseph are 32-51-44 and 91-11-41. The coordinates for Channel 266A at Clayton are 31-44-48 and 91-31-16. The coordinates for Channel 300C3 at Wisner are 32-05-28 and 91-28-57.


Effective February 24, 2003.
