In response to a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, 68 FR 56811 (October 2, 2003), this document grants a petition for rulemaking filed by Benjamin Stratemeyer, licensee of Station WIBV(FM), Mount Vernon, Illinois, seeking to amend the FM Table of Allotments by reallotting Channel 271B1 from Mount Vernon to Okawville, Illinois, as the community's first local aural transmission service, and modifying the license of Station WIBV(FM) to reflect the change of community.
