Final rule.


The Audio Division, at the request of Petitioner Katherine Pyeatt grants her request for dismissal of her petition for rulemaking to allot Channel 290A at Victoria, Texas. In addition, the Audio Division grants a timely filed counterproposal filed by Voz de la Raza and allots Channel 290A at Austwell, Texas, as the community's first local service. Channel 290A can be allotted to Austwell in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements at 28-23-40 North Latitude and 96-41-17 West Longitude with a site restriction of 15.1 kilometers (9.4 miles) east of Austwell.

Mexican concurrence was previously obtained. A filing window for Channel 290A at Austwell will not be opened at this time.
