Proposed rule.


This document requests comments on a petition for rulemaking filed by Charles Crawford requesting the allotment of Channel 252A at Olustee, Oklahoma as that community's first local service. The coordinates for Channel 252A at Olustee are 34-33-00 NL and 99-24-00 WL. There is a site restriction 2.0 kilometers (1.3 miles) east of the community. To accommodate the proposal, petitioner requests that the coordinates for vacant Channel 253C3 at Wellington, Texas be modified to 34-53-00 NL and 100-18-00 WL with a site restriction 8.5 kilometers (5.3 miles) west of the community. Petitioner also indicates that the required spacing separations are met due to the fact that Channel 253C is no longer allotted to Elk City, Oklahoma and Channel 251C1 is no longer allotted to Lawton, Oklahoma pursuant to Crowell, Texas et al., 19 FCC Rcd 5347 (MB 2004).


Comments must be filed on or before November 8, 2004, and reply comments on or before November 23, 2004.


Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve the petitioner as follows: Charles Crawford, 4553 Bordeaux Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75205.
