Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Audio Division, at the request of KNAB, Inc., allots Channel 292C0 at Atwood, Kansas, as the community's first local aural transmission service (RM-11246). To accommodate the allotment, we also substitute Channel 294C1 for Channel 293C1 at Ogallala, Nebraska, and the modify Station KMCX-FM's license accordingly. We deny the petition filed by Border Alliance of Broadcasters proposing the allotment of Channel 280C0 at Atwood, Kansas, and the proposed changes required to accommodate the proposal (RM-11147). Channel 292C0 can be allotted to Atwood in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirement with a site restriction of 14.8 kilometers (9.2 miles) southeast to avoid a short-spacing to the licensed site of Station KQNK-FM, Channel 294A, Norton, Kansas. The reference coordinates for Channel 292C0 at Atwood are 39-43-51 North Latitude and 100-53-58 West Longitude. Additionally, Channel 294C1 can be substituted at Ogallala at Station KMCX-FM's currently authorized site. The reference coordinates for Channel 294C1 at Ogallala are 41-08-02 North Latitude and 101-41-42 West Longitude.


Effective September 18, 2006. A filing window for Channel 292C0 at Atwood, Kansas, will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening this allotment for auction will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order. Because the allotment requires the substitution of Channel 294C1 for Channel 293C1 at Ogallala, Nebraska, any requisite conditions for the channel change will be stipulated in said order.
