Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Audio Division, at the request of Katherine Pyeatt, allots FM Channel 256C3 at Harper, Texas, as that community's first local service. Channel 259C3 can be allotted at Harper, Texas, in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 12.9 km (8.0 miles) east of Harper at the following reference coordinates: 30-16-20 North Latitude and 99-07-25 West Longitude. Concurrence in the 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.” In addition, the allotment of Channel 256C3 at Harper, Texas, is subject to the final outcome of MM Docket No. 00-148 and MB Docket No. 05-112, and the Harper channel will not be available for auction until the dismissals of mutually-exclusive counterproposals in those proceedings are final.
