Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Audio Division, at the request of The Stair Company, substitutes Channel 290C2 for Channel 290A at Tazewell, Tennessee, reallots Channel 290C2 from Tazewell to Weaverville, North Carolina, and modifies Station WCTU(FM)'s license accordingly (RM-10777). At the request of Glenville Radio Broadcasters, we dismiss the petition for rule making proposing the allotment of Channel 289A at Glenville, North Carolina, as the community's first local aural transmission service (RM-10602). See 67 FR 71926, December 3, 2002. At the request of Georgia-Carolina Radiocasting Company, LLC, we also dismiss the counterproposal proposing the allotment of Channel 290A at Clyde, North Carolina, as the community's first local aural transmission service (RM-10776). Channel 290C2 can be reallotted to Weaverville in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a restriction of 27.1 kilometers (16.8 miles) northwest to avoid a short-spacing to the licensed site of Station WAGI-FM, Channel 287C, Gaffney, South Carolina. The reference coordinates for Channel 290C2 at Weaverville are 35-48-31 North Latitude and 82-49-37 West Longitude.


Effective November 28, 2005.
