Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Audio Division, at the request of Tejas Broadcasting Ltd., LLP, allots FM Channel 291A and deletes FM Channel 252A at Matagorda, Texas. This allotment change is part of a hybrid rule making and FM application proposal. Channel 291A can be allotted at Matagorda, consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's rules, at city reference coordinates of 28-41-25 NL and 95-58-02 WL, without site restriction. Concurrence by the Government of Mexico is required because Channel 291A at Matagorda, Texas, is located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexican border. Mexican concurrence has been requested for this vacant allotment, but has not yet been received. If a construction permit for Channel 291A at Matagorda, Texas is granted prior to receipt of formal concurrence by the Mexican government, the authorization will include the following condition: “Operation with the facilities specified herein for Matagorda, Texas, is subject to modification, suspension, or termination without right to hearing, if found by the Commission to be necessary in order to conform to the Mexico-United States FM Broadcast Agreement, or if specifically objected to by the Government of Mexico.” See Supplementary Information infra.


Effective August 16, 2013.
