Federal Communications Commission.
This document requests comments on a petition for rulemaking filed by Linda Crawford, proposing the allotment of Channel 297A at Llano, Texas, as its fourth FM commercial broadcast transmission service. To accommodate the allotment at Llano, Petitioner has requested a site change for vacant Channel 297A at Junction, Texas. Channel 297A can be allotted to Llano consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's Rules with a site restriction 6.1 kilometers (3.8 miles) west of the community at coordinates 30-46-00 NL and 98-44-15 WL. The proposed new site for Channel 297A at Junction, 30-24-15 NL and 99-51-45 WL, is in compliance with the Commission's spacing requirements. This site is 12.8 kilometers (8.0 miles) southwest of the community, whereas the original site for Channel 297A at Junction was 3.5 kilometers (2.2 miles) south of the community. The existing coordinates for the vacant Channel 297A at Junction are 30-27-27 NL and 99-46-07 WL. We seek comment on the proposed site change for vacant Channel 297A at Junction from interested parties.
Comments must be filed on or before May 12, 2005, and reply comments on or before May 27, 2005.
