Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Audio Division, at the request of Dana J. Puopolo, allots Channel 247A to Lamont, California, as the community's first local aural transmission service. In order to accommodate the allotment at Lamont, the Audio Division substitutes Channel 282A for vacant Channel 247A at McFarland, California. See 68 FR 15142, March 28, 2003. Channel 247A can be allotted to Lamont, California, consistent with the minimum distance separation requirement of the Commission's Rules, provided there is a site restriction of 6.5 kilometers (4.1 miles) southeast of the community. The reference coordinates for Channel 247A at Lamont are 35-12-23 North Latitude and 118-52-57 West Longitude. Moreover, Channel 282A can be allotted to McFarland, California by using the same reference coordinates as vacant Channel 247A, in conformity with the Commission's Rules, provided there is a site restriction of 10.3 kilometers (6.4 miles) west of the community. The reference coordinates for Channel 282A at McFarland are 35-40-16 North Latitude and 119-20-30 West Longitude. A filing window for Channel 247A at Lamont, California and Channel 282A at McFarland, California, 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.
