Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Audio Division, at the request of Linda Crawford, allots Channel 263C to Fort Stockton, Texas, as the community's second local FM aural transmission service. See 68 FR 15141, March 28, 2003. Channel 263C can be allotted to Fort Stockton, in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, provided there is a site restriction of 13.8 kilometers (8.6 miles) southeast of the community. The reference coordinates for Channel 263C at Fort Stockton are 30-50-06 North Latitude and 102-45-06 West Longitude. This document also dismissed a Petition for Rule Making filed by Katherine Pyeatt proposing the allotment of Channel 261C3 at Sanderson, Texas, as that community's first local FM aural transmission service. A filing window for Channel 263C at Fort Stockton, Texas, will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening a filing window for this channel will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order.


Effective August 4, 2003.
