The full text of this Commission decision is available for inspection and copying during normal business hours in the FCC Information Center, Portals II, 445 12th Street, SW., Room CY-A257, Washington, DC 20554. The complete text of this decision also may be purchased from the Commission's duplicating contractor, Best Copy and Printing, Inc., 445 12th Street, SW., Room CY-B402, Washington, DC 20554, (800) 378-3160, or via the company's Web site, http://www.bcpiweb.com. The Commission will 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 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).

The Audio Division further, at the request of Dana J. Puopolo, allots Channel 255A at Mojave, California, as the community's third local FM service. Channel 255A can be allotted to Mojave, California, in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 10.3 km (6.4 miles) northeast of Mojave. The coordinates for Channel 255A at Mojave, California, are 35-06-07 North Latitude and 118-04-41 West Longitude. Concurrence in the allotment by the Government of Mexico is required because the proposed allotment is located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexican border. Although Mexican concurrence has been requested, notification has not yet been received. If a construction permit for Channel 255A at Mojave, California, is granted prior to receipt of formal concurrence by the Mexican government, the authorization will include the following condition: “Operation with the facilities specified herein for Mojave, California, is subject to modification, suspension, or termination without right to hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary I order to conform to the Mexico-United States FM Broadcast Agreement, or if specifically objected to by the Government of Mexico.” In order to accommodate that allotment, the Audio Division further, at the request of Dana J. Puopolo, substitutes Channel 247A for vacant Channel 255A at Trona, California. Channel 247A can be allotted to Trona, California, in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements at city reference coordinates, without site restriction. The coordinates for Channel 247A at Trona, California, are 35-45-46 North Latitude and 117-22-19 West Longitude.
