The Audio Division unreserved Channel 239A at Westley, California for noncommercial educational (“NCE”) use by operation of law since none of the applications in NCE Reserved Allotment Group No. 8 would provide the requisite level of first and second NCE use. The window period for filing applications for Channel 239A at Westley, California will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening this allotment for auction for commercial use will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order. Accordingly, we are amending the FM Table of Allotments by removing the NCE “asterisk” from Channel 239A at Westley, California.
Effective August 20, 2012 and applicable July 27, 2012.
