ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Audio Division, at the request of Charles Crawford, allots Channel 250C3 at Bangs, Texas, as the community's first local aural transmission service. See 68 FR 42663, July 18, 2003. Channel 250C3 can be allotted to Bangs in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 11.9 kilometers (7.4 miles) west to avoid a short-spacing to the license sites of Station KATX, Channel 249A, Eastland, Texas and Station KBFB, Channel 250C, Dallas, Texas. The reference coordinates for Channel 250C3 at Bangs are 31-41-32 North Latitude and 99-15-17 West Longitude. Although concurrence has been requested for Channel 250C3 at Bangs, notification has not been received. If a construction permit is granted prior to the receipt of formal concurrence in the allotment by the Mexican government, the construction permit will include the following condition: “Use of this allotment is subject to suspension, modification, or termination without right to hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary in order to conform to the 1992 USA-Mexico FM Broadcast Agreement or if specifically objected to by Mexico's Secretaria de Comunicaciones Y Transportes.” The Audio Division, at the request of Garfield-Mesa County Line Broadcasters, allots Channel 275C3 at De Beque, Colorado, as the community's first local aural transmission service. See 68 FR 42663, July 18, 2003. Channel 275C3 can be allotted to De Beque in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, provided there is a site restriction of 7.1 kilometers (4.4 miles) northwest to avoid a short-spacing to the license site of Station KPRU, Channel 277C2, Delta, Colorado. The reference coordinates for Channel 275C3 at De Beque are 39-22-36 North Latitude and 108-16-33 West Longitude. Filing windows for Channel 250C3 at Bangs, Texas and Channel 275C3 at De Beque, Colorado 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.
