Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document requests comments on a petition for rulemaking filed by Jackson Hole Community Radio proposing to amend the FM Table of Allotments, Section 73.202(b) of the rules, to allot Channel 294C2 at Jackson, Wyoming, and reserve it for noncommercial educational use. See Reexamination of the Comparative Standards for Noncommercial Educational Applicants (“NCE Report and Order”). 65 FR 36375 (June 8, 2000). Petitioner's proposal warrants consideration because the allotment could provide Jackson with its second NCE service. A preliminary staff engineering analysis of the proposal confirms that Channel 294C2 as proposed could provide a second NCE service to significantly more than 10 percent of the population within its 1 mV/m service area. In addition, our analysis confirms that there are no channels available in the FM reserved band. Channel *294C2 can be allotted at Jackson without a site restriction at coordinates 43-28-42 NL and 110-45-42 WL.

DATES:

Comments must be filed on or before May 5, 2005, and reply comments on or before May 20, 2005.

ADDRESSES:

Federal Communications Commission, 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve the petitioner, and Station KURB as follows: Jackson Hole Community Radio, Inc., c/o Henry A.
