Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

This document proposes to amend the FM Table of Allotments, by substituting noncommercial educational Channel *278A for Channel *296A at Pima, Arizona to accommodate the hybrid application, requesting modification of the license for Station KIKO(FM) to specify operation on Channel 243C2 rather than Channel 247C2 at Claypool, Arizona. A staff engineering analysis indicates that Channel *278A can be allotted to Pima consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's rules with a site restriction 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) southeast of the community. The reference coordinates are 32-49-46 NL and 109-45-16 WL.

DATES:

Comments must be filed on or before October 17, 2016, and reply comments on or before November 1, 2016.

ADDRESSES:

Federal Communications Commission, 445 12th Street SW., Washington, DC 20554. In addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should serve the rule making petitioner and the counter proponent as follows: John F. Garziglia, Esq., Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, LLP, 1200 19th Street NW., Suite 500, Washington, DC 20036.

Provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 do not apply to this proceeding.

Members of the public should note that from the time a Notice of Proposed Rule Making is issued until the matter is no longer subject to Commission consideration or court review, all ex parte contacts are prohibited in Commission proceedings, such as this one, which involve channel allotments. See 47 CFR 1.1204(b) for rules governing permissible ex parte contacts.
