AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

The Audio Division seeks comments on the proposed deletion of Channel 299C2 at Pacific Junction, Iowa. The reference coordinates for Channel 299C2 at Pacific Junction are 18-20-36 NL and 64-55-48 WL. Interested parties must file comments expressing an interest for Channel 299C2 at Pacific Junction to prevent its deletion. Any party filing a comment expressing an interest in retaining service in Pacific Junction will be required to provide evidence, demonstrating that a properly spaced site is technically feasible and meets FAA criteria. Additionally, any expressions of interest specifying sites conforming with the minimum distance separation requirements of Section 73.207(b) in response to this Notice will be required to submit specific showings demonstrating the ability to provide a 3.16 mV/m contour over the entire principal community of Pacific Junction, as required by Section 73.315 of the Commission's Rules. Although site certification is generally not required in the context of a rulemaking proceeding, we believe the facts in this case warrant a departure from that policy. Any interested party will be required to provide information demonstrating that it has reasonable assurance of transmitter site availability.
