AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document proposes two new allotments in Grayville, Illinois and Alamogordo, New Mexico. The Audio Division requests comment on a petition filed by Linda A. Davidson proposing the allotment of Channel 229A at Grayville, as the community's first local service. Channel 229A can be allotted to Grayville in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 13.0 kilometers (8.1 miles) northwest of the community. The reference coordinates for Channel 229A at Grayville, Illinois are 38-21-56 North Latitude and 88-03-38 West Longitude.

The Audio Division also requests comments on a petition filed by Daniel R. Feely proposing the allotment of Channel 240C2 at Alamogordo, New Mexico, as the community's fifth FM commercial aural transmission service. Channel 240C2 can be allotted to Alamogordo in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 10.4 kilometers (6.5 miles) southeast of the community. The reference coordinates for Channel 240C2 at Alamogordo are 32-49-04 North Latitude and 105-54-19 West Longitude. Because the proposed site is within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the Mexican border, concurrence of the Mexican government has been requested for the allotment.

DATES:

Comments must be filed on or before November 15, 2004, and reply comments on or before November 30, 2004.

ADDRESSES:

Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Washington, DC. 20554.
