Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule, denial.


This document grants, in part, a Petition for Reconsideration filed Northern Radio of Michigan, Inc., and denies a Petition for Reconsideration by Fort Bend Broadcasting Company both directed to the Report and Order in this proceeding which denied a Counterproposal filed by the former licensee of Station WSRQ in this proceeding. Fort Bend Broadcasting Company is now the licensee of Station WSRQ. In that Counterproposal, the former licensee proposed the substitution of Channel 260C1 for Channel 260A at Bear Lake, Michigan, reallotment of Channel 260C1 to Bellaire, Michigan, and modification of the Station WSRQ license to specify operation on Channel 260C1 at Bellaire. In order to replace the loss of the sole local service at Bear Lake, the former licensee proposed a Channel 291A allotment as a replacement service. The Report and Order determined that there was no suitable site for the Channel 291A allotment at Bear Lake and denied the Counterproposal. See 67 FR 38206, June 3, 2002. Specifically, this document modifies the Report and Order to the extent of determining that there was a suitable transmitter site for a Channel 291A allotment at Bear Lake and a Channel 260C1 allotment at Bellaire would not comply with Section 73.315(a) of the Rules. With this action, the proceeding is terminated.
