Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document requests comments on a petition filed by Corey J. McCaslin proposing the allotment of Channel 262A at Susanville, California, as its fourth FM broadcast aural transmission service. Channel 262A can be allotted to Susanville, consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's Rules using city reference coordinates. The reference coordinates for Channel 262A at Susanville are 40-24-59 North Latitude and 120-39-07 West Longitude. Additionally, to accommodate the proposed allotment of Channel 262A at Susanville, Corey J. McCaslin requests the substitution of Channel 265A for Channel 262A at Quincy, California, and modification of the license for Station KHGQ(FM) at its current transmitter site. An Order to Show Cause is issued to Keily Miller, licensee of Station KHGQ(FM), as requested. To accommodate the allotment of Channel 265A at Quincy, Corey J. McCaslin also proposes the downgrade of Station KTHU(FM), Channel 264C1, Corning, California to Channel 264B. The FM Table of Allotments was recently changed to reflect Channel 264B at Corning, California. See 68 FR 60043, published October 21, 2003.

Comments must be filed on or before June 25, 2004, and reply comments on or before July 12, 2004.
