Proposed rule.


This document sets forth a proposal to amend the FM Table of Allotments, Section 73.202(b) of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 73.202(b). The Commission requests comment on a petition filed by Radio Beam, LLC. Petitioner proposes the allotment of Channel 253A at Waldport, Oregon, as a first local service. In order to accommodate the proposed allotment, petitioner further requests the substitution of noncommercial educational Channel 236C3 for vacant noncommercial educational Channel 252C3 at Dallas, Oregon. In order to accommodate those two proposed changes in the FM Table of Allotments, petitioner also proposes the substitution of Channel 252C3 for Channel 236C3 at Monmouth, Oregon, and the modification of the license for Station KSND (FM) accordingly. Channel 253A can be allotted at Waldport in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 8.3 km (5.2 miles) north of Waldport. The proposed coordinates for Channel 253A at Waldport are 44-30-06 North Latitude and 124-04-30 West Longitude. Channel 236C3 can be allotted at Dallas in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 16.9 km (10.5 miles) southwest of Dallas. The proposed coordinates for Channel 236C3 at Dallas are 44-50-43 North Latitude and 123-30-07 West Longitude. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION infra.
