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 Legend Communications of Wyoming, LLC. Petitioner proposes the allotment of Channel 267A at Ten Sleep, Wyoming, as a first local service. The purpose of the requested allotment is to maintain Ten Sleep's first potential local service, because petitioner has requested a change of community of license for unbuilt Station KYTS(FM), Channel 271C2, from Ten Sleep to Manderson, Wyoming. Channel 267A can be allotted at Ten Sleep in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 0.3 km (0.2 miles) northeast of Ten Sleep. The proposed coordinates for Channel 267A at Ten Sleep are 44-02-08 North Latitude and 107-26-50 West Longitude. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION infra.


Comments must be filed on or before March 9, 2009, and reply comments on or before March 24, 2009.
