ACTION:

Final rule, petition for reconsideration.

SUMMARY:

This document grants the Petition for Reconsideration filed by Dana J. Puopolo directed to the Report and Order in this proceeding by allotting Channel 299C3 at Gunnison, Colorado, as its fourth local service. See 69 FR 58840, published October 1, 2004. Channel 299C3 can be allotted to Gunnison, consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's rules provided there is a site restriction of 19.5 kilometers (12.1 miles) northeast at coordinates 38-40-48 NL and 106-46-48 WL. This site restriction will ensure full-spacing to the license site of Station KBKL on Channel 300C at Grand Junction, Colorado. This document also allots Channel 274C3 in lieu of Channel 272C2 at Crawford, as its first local service. Channel 274C3 can be allotted to Crawford in compliance with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's rules provided there is a site restriction of 19.5 kilometers (12.1 miles) northeast at coordinates 38-38-09 NL and 107-34-43 WL. As a result, the Station KVLE(FM) Channel 299A substitution at Gunnison and the site relocation for vacant Channel 270C2 at Olathe is no longer necessary. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION.

Channel 272A can be allotted to Greenwood Village consistent with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements provided there is a site restriction of 12.5 kilometers (7.7 miles) east of the community. The reference coordinates for Channel 272A at Greenwood Village are 39-37-32 North Latitude and 104-47-47 West Longitude. To ensure continued operational local service at Strasburg, we reallot Channel 268C from Fort Morgan to Strasburg, Colorado, as its first local operational service, and modify the license of Station KBRU-FM to reflect this change. Fort Morgan will continue to receive local service from full-time AM Station KFTM. Channel 268C can be allotted to Strasburg consistent with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements provided there is a site restriction of 41.9 kilometers (26 miles) east of the community. The reference coordinates for Channel 268C at Strasburg are 39-51-39 North Latitude and 103-51-44 West Longitude. To accommodate the Greenwood Village reallotment, we modify the transmitter sites for Stations KSMT(FM), Channel 272A, Breckenridge, Colorado and Station KTRR(FM), Channel 237C3, Loveland, Colorado. The transmitter site for Station KSMT(FM), Channel 272A, Breckenridge, Colorado can be modified consistent with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements provided there is a site restriction of 8.4 kilometers (5.2 miles) southwest of the community.

To facilitate Station KSMT(FM) relocation, we modify the license site for Station KTUN(FM), Eagle, Colorado because the requested Channel 269C1 substitution was granted by minor change application. The transmitter site for Station KTUN(FM), Channel 269C1, Eagle, Colorado can be modified consistent with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements provided there is a site restriction of 12.8 kilometers (7.9 miles) northwest of the community. The modified license coordinates for Channel 269C1 at Eagle are 39-45-15 North Latitude and 106-54-13 West Longitude. Moreover, because the requested Channel 275C1 downgrade at Laramie was also granted by minor change application, we modify the licensed site for Station KARS-FM, Laramie, Wyoming to accommodate Station KTRR-FM relocation. The transmitter site for Station KARS-FM, Channel 275C1, Laramie, Wyoming also can be modified consistent with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements provided there is a site restriction of 47 kilometers (29.2 miles) south of the community.
