ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document requests comments on a Petition for Rule Making filed by Charles Crawford requesting the allotment of Channel 252C3 at New Llano, Louisiana, as the community's first local aural transmission service. Channel 252C3 can be allotted to New Llano in compliance with the Commission's rules provided there is a site restriction of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) north of New Llano. The proposed reference coordinates for Channel 252C3 at New Llano are 31-12-18 North Latitude and 93-16-11 West Longitude. To accommodate this allotment, this document also proposes the substitution of Channel 224A for vacant FM Channel 252A at Leesville, Louisiana. Channel 224A can also be allotted to Leesville in compliance with the Commission's rules provided there is a site restriction of 12.6 kilometers (7.8 miles) east of Leesville. The proposed reference coordinates for Channel 224A at Leesville are 31-07-40 North Latitude and 93-08-03 West Longitude. Channel 224A at Leesville is currently listed in the FM Table of Allotments, however, that channel was substituted for Channel 228C3 at Leesville in MM Docket No. 98-191, and the license of Station KJAE(FM) was modified accordingly. See Leesville, Louisiana, 64 FR 31140, published June 10, 1999.
