SUMMARY:

The Audio Division requests comments on a petition filed by Results Broadcasting of Rhinelander, Inc., proposing the allotment of Channel 265C3 at Tomahawk, Wisconsin, as the community's second local FM transmission service. Channel 265C3 can be allotted to Tomahawk in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 8.5 kilometers (5.3 miles) west-northwest to avoid a short-spacing to the licensed and construction permit sites of Station WOBE(FM), Channel 264C1, Crystal Falls, Michigan. The coordinates for Channel 265C3 at Tomahawk are 46-30-01 North Latitude and 89-49-50 West Longitude. Since Tomahawk is located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border, concurrence of the Canadian government has been requested.
