Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Audio Division, at the request of Waitsburg Broadcasting Company, allots Channel 272A to Waitsburg, Washington, as its first local aural transmission service. See 69 FR 29254, May 21, 2004. Channel 272A can be allotted to Waitsburg, consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's Rules with a site restriction 12.3 kilometers (7.6 miles) east of the community at coordinates 46-17-41 NL and 117-59-47 WL. Although concurrence has been requested for Channel 272A at Waitsburg, notification has not been received. If a construction permit is granted prior to the receipt of formal concurrence in the allotment by the Canadian government, the construction permit will include the following condition: “Operation with the facilities specified for Waitsburg herein is subject to modification, suspension or, termination without right to hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary in order to conform to the U.S.-Canadian FM Broadcast Agreement.” A filing window for Channel 272A at Waitsburg, Washington, will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening a filing window for this channel will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order.
