Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


In response to a petition filed by Sunburst Media, LP proposing the reallotment of Channel 241C2 from Madisonville, Texas, to College Station, Texas, and modification of the license for Station KAAG accordingly, the Commission issued a Notice of Proposed Rule Making. See 64 FR 68662, December 8, 1999. The proposal for Madisonville and College Station has been withdrawn. Two counterproposals were filed in response to the Notice. The counterproposal filed by Garwood Broadcasting Company of Texas which involved the communities of Bay City, Columbus, Edna, Garwood, Palacios and Sheridan, Texas, has been denied. In response to a counterproposal filed by Giddings Community Broadcasting Company we shall allot Channel 240A to Giddings, Texas. Channel 240A can be allotted to Giddings, Texas, with a site restriction 12.1 kilometers (7.5 miles) north of the community at coordinates 30-10-54 and 96-56-12. The issue of opening a filing window for this channel will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent Order. With this action, this proceeding is terminated.
