Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission amends the Table of FM Allotments by removing Channel 221C0 at Port Lions, Alaska; Channel 247C3 at De Beque, Colorado; Channel 237C3 at Benjamin, Texas; Channel 261C3 at Cisco, Texas; Channel 288C2 at Rule, Texas; and Channel 225C2 at Shamrock, Texas. These vacant allotments have been offered in two or more FM auctions. No bids were entered for these allotments in Auction 94. It is Commission's policy not to delete an FM allotment where a bona fide expression of interest exists, absent a compelling reason to do so. Accordingly, we are deleting these six vacant allotments because no bona fide expressions of interests were filed.


Effective December 16, 2013.
