Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document requests comments on a Petition for Rule Making filed by Linda Crawford, d/b/a Waukomis Broadcasting, proposing the allotment of Channel 292A at Waukomis, Oklahoma, as the community's first local aural transmission service. To accommodate this allotment, Petitioner requested the reclassification of Station KYQQ (FM) Channel 293C, Arkansas City, Kansas, to specify operation on Channel 293C0 pursuant to the reclassification procedures adopted by the Commission. Due to a failure to respond to an Order to Show Cause, Station KYQQ (FM) has been downgraded to Channel 293C0 to accommodate the Waukomis proposed allotment. Channel 292A can be allotted at Waukomis in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 6.3 kilometers (3.9 miles) southwest of the community. The coordinates for Channel 292A at Waukomis are 36-14-01 North Latitude and 97-56-25 West Longitude.

DATES:

Comments must be filed on or before April 17, 2006, and reply comments on or before May 2, 2006. Any counterproposal filed in this proceeding need only protect FM Station KYQQ (FM) Arkansas City, Kansas, as a Class C0 allotment.

ADDRESSES:

Federal Communications Commission, 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve the petitioner, as follows: Ms. Linda Crawford, Waukomis Broadcasting, 3500 Maple Ave., #1320, Dallas, Texas 75219.
