Channel 228A can be allotted at Bastrop, consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's rules, at coordinates 32-48-20 NL and 91-52-5 WL, with a site restriction of 7.2 km (4.5 miles) northeast of the community See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION infra.

In addition, therefore, it does not contain any proposed information collection burden “for small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees,” pursuant to the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act of 2002, Public Law 107-198, see 44 U.S.C. 3506 (c)(4).

Channel 230A is not listed in the FM Table of Allotments. Vacant Channel 230A at Bastrop was inadvertently removed from the FM Table of Allotments in MB Docket 05-210 (see 71 FR 76208, published December 20, 2006), but the channel will not be restored to the Table; instead, under the provisions of this Report and Order, the FM Table of Allotments is amended by adding Channel 228A at Bastrop, Louisiana.
