Federal Communications Commission.
This document requests comments on a petition for rulemaking filed by Charles Crawford requesting the allotment of Channel 231A at Mt. Enterprise, Texas. The coordinates for Channel 231A at Mt. Enterprise are 31-59-40 and 94-40-29. There is a site restriction 8.5 kilometers (5.3 miles) north of the community. To accommodate the allotment at Mt. Enterprise, petitioner has requested a site change for vacant Channel 231C2 at Hodge, Louisiana, from 32-08-20 and 52-59-04 to a site 20.5 kilometers southwest of Hodge at coordinates 32-09-00 and 92-53-00. A minor change application was later filed by Cumulus Licensing LLC, licensee of Station KQXY-FM, Channel 231C1, Beaumont, Texas, which conflicts with the proposed Mt. Enterprise allotment. See BPH-20031119AAE. This application will be treated as a counterproposal in this proceeding.
Comments must be filed on or before March 28, 2005, and reply comments on or before April 12, 2005.

Provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 do not apply to this proceeding.
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 contacts.
