Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission (FCC).


Final rule.


In response to a Notice of Proposed Rule Making, this Report and Order grants the Petition for Rule Making filed by Black Entrepreneur Association, Inc. (“BEA”), and allots Channel 229C3 to Wickenburg, Arizona. The reference coordinates for Channel 229C3 at Wickenburg are 33-53-49 NL and 112-54-45 WL, with a site restriction of 18.7 kilometers (11.6 miles) southwest of Wickenburg. The Report and Order also dismisses the mutually exclusive Petition for Rule Making filed by Entravision Holdings, L.L.C. (“Entravision”). Entravision had proposed to upgrade Channel 296C3, Station KVVA-FM, Apache Junction, Arizona to Channel 296C1 and to reallot Channel 296C1 from Apache Junction to Peoria, Arizona; substitute Channel 229C3 for vacant Channel 297C3 at Aguila, Arizona; upgrade Channel 295A, Station KDVA(FM), Buckeye, Arizona, to Channel 295C3, and reallot Channel 295C3 to Wenden, Arizona; and to reallot Channel 278C, Station KLNZ(FM), from Glendale to Buckeye, Arizona. Entravision's Petition for Rule Making was dismissed because its proposal to upgrade Channel 296C3, Station KVVA-FM, to Channel 296C1 and reallot Channel 296C1 to Apache Junction was mutually exclusive with a protected FM application.
