FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION

47 CFR Part 73

[MM Docket No. 96-137; RM-8823]


Radio Broadcasting Services; Negaunee, MI

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document requests comments on a petition filed by Todd 
Stuart Noordyk requesting the allotment of Channel 270A to Negaunee, 
Michigan, with cut-off protection and modification of his application 
for Channel 258A to specify operation on Channel 270A at Negaunee. The 
coordinates for Channel 270A at Negaunee are 46-28-18 and 87-36-55. 
Since Negaunee is located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the 
U.S.-Canadian border, concurrence of the Canadian government will be 
requested for this allotment. This proposal would enable the settlement 
of a mutually exclusive proceeding between two applicants for Channel 
258A at Negaunee, Michigan.

DATES: Comments must be filed on or before August 12, 1996, and reply 
comments on or before August 27, 1996.

ADDRESSES: Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC 20554. In 
addition to filing comments with the FCC, interested parties should 
serve the petitioner's counsel, as follows: Cary S. Tepper, Booth, 
Freret & Imlay, P.C., 1233 - 20th Street, NW., Suite 204, Washington, 
DC 20036.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kathleen Scheuerle, Mass Media Bureau, 
(202) 418-2180.
