This document requests comments on a Petition for Rule Making filed by SSR Communications, Inc., permittee of FM Station KIMW, Channel 288A, Haynesville, Louisiana, proposing the allotment of Channel 286A to Haynesville, Louisiana, as a “backfill” allotment to prevent removal of Haynesville's potential first local service. A staff engineering analysis indicates that Channel 286A can be allotted to Haynesville consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's Rules with a site restriction 4.6 kilometers (2.9 miles) south of the community. The reference coordinates are 33-00-12 NL and 93-08-19 WL.
Comments must be filed on or before April 21, 2014, and reply comments on or before May 6, 2014.
