The Audio Division, at the request of Sierra H Broadcasting, Inc., allots FM Channel 259A in lieu of vacant FM Channel 267A at Ash Fork, Arizona, and allots FM Channel 228C3 in lieu of vacant FM Channel 268C3 at Paulden, Arizona.

Channel 228C3 can be allotted at Paulden, Arizona, in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 7.7 km (4.8 miles) west of Paulden at the following reference coordinates: 34-52-16 North Latitude and 112-33-00 West Longitude. Concurrence in the Paulden allotment by the Government of Mexico is required because the proposed allotment is located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexican border. Although Mexican concurrence has been requested, notification has not been received. If a construction permit for Channel 228C3 at Paulden, Arizona, is granted prior to receipt of formal concurrence by the Mexican government, the authorization will include the following condition: “Operation with the facilities specified herein for Paulden, Arizona, is subject to modification, suspension, or termination without right to hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary in order to conform to the Mexico-United States FM Broadcast Agreement, or if specifically objected to by the Government of Mexico.”
