Federal Communications Commission.


Proposed rule; denial.


The staff denied a petition for rulemaking filed by JBL Broadcasting, Inc. to upgrade, reallot, and change the community of license its Station WVEK-FM, from Channel 274A, Cumberland, Kentucky, to Channel 274C3, Weber City, Virginia, because one of the required channel changes to accommodate this proposal is short-spaced in violation of Section 73.207(a) of the Commission's rules. With this action, the proceeding is terminated.

This rulemaking petition was proposed in a Notice of Proposed Rule Making and Order to Show Cause. See 70 FR 70777, November 11, 2005. To accommodate the upgrade and reallotment of Station WVEK-FM to Weber City, it also proposed (1) the substitution of Channel 263A for then vacant Channel 274A at Glade, Spring, VA; and (2) the substitution of Channel 273A for Channel 263A at Marion, VA, and the modification of Station WOLD-FM's license accordingly. The rulemaking petition was denied because the proposed allotment of Channel 273A at Marion, Virginia is 6.6 and 0.6 kilometers short-spaced to two mutually exclusive applications for a new FM station on Channel 273A at Shawsville, Virginia.

This document is not subject to the Congressional Review Act. (The Commission, is, therefore, not required to submit a copy of this Report and Order to GAO, pursuant to the Congressional Review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A) because the proposed rule was denied.)
