47 CFR Part 73

[MM Docket No. 93-310, RM-8395]


Radio Broadcasting Services; Chester, Virginia

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Commission requests comments on a petition filed by 
Hoffman Communications, Inc., licensee of Station WDYL-FM, Channel 
226A, Chester, Virginia, proposing the substitution of Channel 289A for 
Channel 226A at Chester and modification of its license to specify 
operation on the alternate Class A channel. Channel 289A can be 
allotted to Chester in compliance with the Commission's minimum 
distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 4.2 
kilometers (2.6 miles) northwest. The coordinates for Channel 289A at 
Chester are 37-23-11 and 77-28-26. We will not accept competing 
expressions of interest in the use of Channel 289A at Chester because 
the procedures outlined in Modification of FM and TV Licenses, 98 FCC 
2nd 916 (1984), and Sec. 1.420(g) of the Commission's Rules, do not 
apply in this case since no upgrade in facilities is contemplated.

DATES: Comments must be filed on or before February 18, 1994, and reply 
comments on or before March 4, 1994.

ADDRESSES: Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC 20554. In 
addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should
