Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Audio Division, at the request of Maurice Salsa, allots Channel 249A at O'Donnell and Roaring Springs, Texas, as each community's first local aural transmission service (RM-10380). At the request of Katherine Pyeatt, we also dismiss the petition for rule making proposing the allotment of Channel 249C2 at Post, Texas (RM-10278). See 66 FR.52734, October 17, 2001. Channel 249A can be allotted to O'Donnell in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirement with a site restriction of 14.6 kilometers (9.1 miles) east to avoid a short-spacing to the vacant allotment site for Channel 248C2, Denver City, Texas, and the licensed site for Station KODM(FM), Channel 250C1, Texas. The coordinates for Channel 249A at O'Donnell are 32-55-32 North Latitude and 101-40-59 West Longitude. Likewise, Channel 249A can be allotted to Roaring Springs with a site restriction of 14.8 kilometers (9.2 miles) northeast to avoid a short-spacing to the proposed allotment for Channel 250C3 at Crowell, Texas. The coordinates for Channel 249A at Roaring Springs are 33-57-42 North Latitude and 100-42-53 West Longitude.


Effective June 18, 2004. A filing window for Channel 249A at O'Donnell and Roaring Springs, Texas, will not be opened at time. Instead, the issue of opening a filing window for these channels will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order.
