SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This is a synopsis of the Commission's Report and Order, MB Docket Nos. 05-8, 05-11, 05-12, adopted October 12, 2005 and released October 17, 2005. The full text of this Commission decision is available for inspection and copying during regular business hours at the FCC's Reference Information Center, Portals II, 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Room CY-A257, Washington, DC 20554. The complete text of this decision may also be purchased from the Commission's duplicating contractor, Best Copy and Printing, Inc., 445 12th Street, SW., Room CY-B402, Washington, DC 20054, telephone 1-800-378-3160 or http://www.BCPIWEB.com. The Commission Start Printed Page 66288will send a copy of this Report and Order in a report to be sent to Congress and the Government Accountability Office pursuant to the Congressional Review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).

The Audio Division, at the request of Plan 9 Broadcasting, allots Channel 229A at Port Angeles, Washington, as that community's fifth local aural transmission service. The reference coordinates for Channel 229A at Port Angeles are 48-06-54 North Latitude and 123-26-36 West Longitude. This allotment is at city reference coordinates and requires no site restriction. Port Angeles is located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Canadian border. Canadian concurrence has been requested for this allotment, as a specially negotiated short-spaced allotment because the proposed Port Angeles allotment is short-spaced to Canadian Station CJJR-FM, Channel 229C, Vancouver, BC and vacant Channel 230A at Port Renfrew, BC. However, notification from Canada has not been received. Therefore, if a construction permit is granted prior to the receipt of formal concurrence in the allotment by the Canadian government, the construction permit will include the following condition: “Operation with the facilities specified for Port Angeles herein 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 USA-Canadian FM Broadcast Agreement.”

The Audio Division, at the request of Sutton Communications Company, allots Channel 249A at Ty Ty, Georgia, as that community's first local aural transmission service. The reference coordinates for Channel 249A at Ty Ty are 31-34-01 North Latitude and 83-40-07 West Longitude. This allotment requires a site restriction of 10.8 kilometers (6.7 miles) north to avoid short-spacing to the application site of Station WDMG-FM, Channel 250A, Ambrose, Georgia and license site of Station WRAK-FM, Channel 247C, Bainbridge, Georgia.
