Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.

Start Printed Page 59448


The Audio Division, at the request of JER Licenses, LLC, substitute alternative Channel 281C for vacant Channel 280C at Toquerville, Utah to accommodate the “hybrid” application that requests the downgrade of the new FM station from Channel 281C3 to Channel 280A at Peach Springs, Arizona. A staff engineering analysis confirms that Channel 281C can be allotted to Toquerville, Utah consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Rules without a site restriction. The reference coordinates for Channel 281C at Toquerville are 37-15-12 NL and 113-17-00 WL. See Supplementary Info. supra.


Effective November 3, 2014.


Secretary, Federal Communications Commission, 445 12th Street SW., Washington, DC 20554.

Our staff engineering analysis confirms that there is no line of sight and substantial terrain obstructions for Channel 246C at Toquerville, Utah at the proposed reference coordinates; and the restricted site substantially reduces the number of existing communications facilities for a Class C facility. We determine that alternative Channel 281C at Toquerville accommodates the Application for Channel 280A at Peach Springs, Arizona, and grant the Application, File No. BNPH-20120529ALI. This document does not contain information collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13.
