Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


At the request of Amigo Radio, Ltd., licensee of Station KOUL(FM), Sinton, Texas, and Pacific Broadcasting of Missouri LLC, licensee of Station KTKY(FM), Taft, Texas, the Audio Division reallots Channel 279C1 from Sinton to Refugio, Texas, and modifies the license of Station KOUL(FM) to reflect the change of community. See 69 FR 51414, August 19, 2004. The document also modifies the operating condition for Station KTKY(FM), Taft, Texas, to read: “Operation of Station KTKY(FM) on Channel 293C2 in Taft, Texas, including program test operation pursuant to Section 73.1620, will not be commenced until such time as express authorization from the Commission has been granted. Such authorization will not be granted until operation has commenced on Station KOUL(FM) at Refugio and is subject to the continued operation by Station KOUL(FM) at Refugio.” Channel 279C1 is reallotted at Refugio at Petitioners' proposed site, 33.8 kilometers (21 miles) southwest of the community at coordinates 28-02-07 NL and 97-26-11 WL. Because this site is within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexican border, concurrence of the Mexican government has been requested for this allotment. However, notification from Mexico has not been received. Therefore, operation with the facilities specified for Refugio in this document is subject to modification, suspension, or termination without right to hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary in order to conform to the 1992 USA-Mexico FM Broadcast Agreement or if specifically objected to by Mexico. As a result, the Station KTKY operation in Taft would also be subject to termination or suspension.


Effective June 27, 2005.
