The Audio Division, at the request of Dana J. Puopolo allots Channel 288A at Port Isabel, Texas, as the community's second local service. See 69 FR 46474, published August 3, 2004. Channel 288A can be allotted to Port Isabel in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements at reference coordinates 25-59-25 North Latitude and 97-09-59 West Longitude, provided there is a site restriction of 10.0 kilometers (6.3) miles southeast of the community. Mexican concurrence has been obtained. A filing window for Channel 288A at Port Isabel, Texas will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening a filing window for this channel will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order.

The Audio Division also amends the FM Table to reflect that Station KNVO-FM was granted a license (BLH-20011226AAP) for a one-step application (BPH-19990304IE) to upgrade from Channel 266A to Channel 266C2 at Port Isabel, Texas. This action constitutes an editorial change in the FM Table of Allotments. Therefore, we find for good cause that a public notice and comment proceeding is unnecessary. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (B).
