AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document sets forth a proposal to amend the FM Table of Allotments, Section 73.202(b) of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 73.202(b). The Audio Division requests comment on a petition filed by George S. Flinn, Jr., pursuant to Section 1.420(i) of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 1.420(i). Petitioner proposes to change the community of license for Station KWCA(FM) from Weaverville to Palo Cedro, California. Petitioner further proposes to upgrade from Channel 266A to Channel 266C3, and to change the FM Table of Allotments by deleting Channel 266A at Weaverville, California, and by adding Channel 266C3 at Palo Cedro, California, as the community's first local aural broadcast service. The proposed coordinates for Channel 266C3 at Palo Cedro, California, are 40-40-04 NL and 122-25-31 WL. The allotment will require a site restriction of 19.6 km (12.2 miles) northwest of Palo Cedro. In addition, in order to accommodate the allotment of Channel 266C3 at Palo Cedro, Petitioner further proposes to downgrade vacant Channel 267C at Alturas, California, to Channel 268C1, and to change the FM Table of allotments at Alturas, California, by deleting Channel 267C and adding Channel 268C1. The proposed coordinates for Channel 268C1 at Alturas, California, are 41-25-00 NL and 121-06-32 WL. The allotment will require a site restriction of 48.1 km (29.9 miles) west of Alturas.

The 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.
