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 Auburn Network, Inc. Petitioner proposes the substitution of FM Channel 262A for vacant Channel 232A at Waverly, Alabama. The purpose of the requested channel substitution at Custer is to accommodate Petitioner's pending application to change the channel FM Station WGZZ from Channel 262A to Channel 232 at Waverly. Channel 262A can be allotted at Waverly in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 13 km (8.1 miles) northeast of Waverly. The proposed coordinates for Channel 262A at Waverly are 32-48-14 North Latitude and 85-41-28 West Longitude. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION infra.

The Provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 do not apply to this proceeding. Members of the public should note that from the time a Notice of Proposed Rule Making is issued until the matter is no longer subject to Commission consideration or court review, all ex parte contacts are prohibited in Commission proceedings, such as this one, which involve channel allotments. See 47 CFR 1.1204(b) for rules governing permissible ex parte contacts.
