Proposed rule.


This document requests comments on a petition for rulemaking filed by Bruce Quinn, requesting the allotment of Channel 231A at Oolitic, Indiana. The coordinates for Channel 231A at Oolitic, Indiana, are 38-59-16 NL and 86-37-47 WL. There is a site restriction of 13.2 kilometers (8.2 miles) northwest of the community. Proposed Channel 231A is short-spaced to the licensed site of Station WQKC-FM, Channel 229B, Seymour, Indiana. However, Station WQKC-FM's license was modified to specify operation on Channel 230A at Sellersburg, Indiana in MB Docket No. 03-98 and the FM Table of Allotments was amended to reflect this change. Therefore, no protection is afforded to this license site. A Petition for Reconsideration of the letter dismissal of this Petition is dismissed as moot.


Comments must be filed on or before November 3, 2008, and reply comments on or before November 17, 2008.


Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve the petitioner as follows: Bruce Quinn, 1217 Lafayette Avenue, Columbus, Indiana 47201.
