Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Audio Division, at the request of Moira L. Ritch, allots Channel 270C3 to Port St. Joe, FL, as the community's second local FM transmission service. See 68 FR 7964, February 19, 2003. Channel 270C3 can be allotted to Port St. Joe in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction 2.2 kilometers(1.4 miles) south to avoid short-spacing to the application site of Station WWAV, Channel 271C2, Santa Rosa, Florida and the license site of Station WBGE, Channel 270A, Bainbridge, Georgia. The reference coordinates for Channel 270C3 at Port St. Joe are 29-47-45 North Latitude and 85-17-27 West Longitude. In response to a counterproposal filed by Richard L. Plessinger, Sr., the Audio Division allots Channel 283A to Eastpoint, FL, as that community's first local aural transmission service. Channel 283A can be allotted to Eastpoint in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements at city reference coordinates. The reference coordinates for Channel 283A at Eastpoint are 29-44-11 North Latitude and 84-52-42 West Longitude. Filing windows for Channel 270C3 at Port St. Joe, FL and Channel 283A at Eastpoint, FL, will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening a filing window for these channels will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order.
