Proposed rule.


This document sets forth a proposal to amend the FM Table of Allotments, Section 73.202(b) of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 73.202(b). The Commission requests comment on a petition filed by Charles Crawford. Petitioner proposes the allotment of Channel 247A at Garwood, Texas, as a first local service. Channel 247A can be allotted at Garwood in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 15.0 km (9.3 miles) northwest of Garwood. The proposed coordinates for Channel 247A at Garwood are 29-33-29 North Latitude and 96-29-12 West Longitude. Any action in this proceeding is subject to the final outcome of MM Docket No. 00-148, which dismissed by a Report and Order proposals that conflict with this proposal for the allotment of Channel 247A at Garwood. The dismissal of those proposals is currently under review. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION infra.
