This document requests comments on a petition for rule making filed by Harlan Communications, Inc., licensee of Station KXCL(FM), Channel 280B1, Yuba City, California. The petition proposes to downgrade Channel 280B1 to Channel 280A and to reallot Station KXCL(FM) from Yuba City to Lincoln, California, and to provide Lincoln with its first local aural transmission service. The coordinates for requested Channel 280A at Lincoln, California, are 38-54-45 NL and 121-23-20 WL, with a site restriction of 8.7 kilometers (5.4 miles) west of Lincoln.
Petitioner's reallotment proposal complies with the provisions of Section 1.420(i) of the Commission's Rules, and therefore, the Commission will not accept competing expressions of interest in the use of Channel 280A at Lincoln, California, or require the petitioner to demonstrate the availability of an additional equivalent class channel.
