Federal Communications Commission.
This document requests comments on a Petition for Rule Making filed by Charles Crawford requesting the allotment of Channel 261A at Meyersville, Texas, as that community's first local aural transmission service. To accommodate this allotment, Petitioner requests the reclassification of FM Station KCYY, Channel 262C, San Antonio, Texas, to specify operation on Channel 262C0 pursuant to the reclassification procedures adopted by the Commission. See 1998 Biennial Regulatory Review—Streamlining of Radio Technical Rules in Parts 73 and 74 of the Commission's Rules, 65 FR 79773 (December 20, 2000). In response to an Order to Show Cause why Station KCYY should not be downgraded from Channel 262C to 262C0, the licensee of FM Station KCYY stated that it would file an application meeting minimum Class C FM standards within the period required by our rules. Since such an application has not been filed, the Commission proposes to reclassify Station KCYY to Class C0. Channel 261A can be allotted with a site restriction 2.0 kilometers (1.2 miles) southwest of Meyersville, at reference coordinates 28-54-58 NL and 97-19-37 WL. To accommodate the proposed allotment, the Commission proposes the reclassification of FM Station KCYY to specify operation on Channel 262C0.
Comments must be filed on or before September 19, 2005, and reply comments on or before October 4, 2005. Any counterproposal filed in this proceeding need only protect FM Station KCYY, San Antonio, Texas, as a Class C0 allotment.
