AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document requests comments on a Petition for Rule Making filed by Charles Crawford requesting the allotment of Channel 296C3 at Paint Rock, Texas, as the community's first local aural transmission service. Channel 296C3 can be allotted to Paint Rock in compliance with the Commission's rules provided there is a site restriction of 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) east at coordinates 31-31-15 North Latitude and 99-45-45 West Longitude. To accommodate this allotment, this document also proposes the relocation of reference coordinates for vacant FM Channel 296C2 at Big Lake, Texas with a site restriction of 24.1 kilometers (15.0 miles) southwest at coordinates 31-02-00 NL and 101-38-00 WL. The proposed Paint Rock allotment and the proposed site for the Big Lake allotment both requires Mexican concurrence since these proposed allotments are located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexican border. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION.

Comments must be filed on or before March 28, 2005, and reply comments on or before April 12, 2005.

Members of the public should note that from the time a Notice of Proposed Rule Making is issued until the matter is no longer subject to Commission consideration or court review, all ex parte contacts are prohibited in Commission proceedings, such as this one, which involve channel allotments. See 47 CFR 1.1204(b) for rules governing permissible ex parte contact.

For information regarding proper filing procedures for comments, see 47 CFR 1.415 and 1.420.
