47 CFR Part 73

[MM Docket No. 96-212; RM-8884]

Radio Broadcasting Services; Portland and Seaside, OR

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Commission, at the request of Radio Systems of Miami, 
Inc., substitutes Channel 254C1 for Channel 253C at Portland, OR, and 
modifies the license of Station KUPL-FM to specify operation on the 
lower class channel. To accommodate the allotment at Portland, Channel 
272A is substituted for Channel 255A at Seaside, OR, and the 
construction permit of Station KULU(FM) is modified to specify the 
alternate Class A channel. See 61 FR 55780, October 29, 1996. The 
allotment of Channel 254C1 at Portland could enable Station KUPL-FM to 
relocate its transmitter to better serve its community of license. 
Channel 254C1 can be allotted to Portland with a site restriction of 
9.1 kilometers (5.6 miles) west, at coordinates 45-30-58 NL; 122-43-59 
WL, to accommodate petitioner's desired site. Channel 272A can be 
allotted to Seaside at the transmitter site specified in Station 
KULU(FM)'s construction permit, at coordinates 45-54-35 NL; 123-56-07 
WL. Canadian concurrence in these allotments has been received since 
both communities are located within 320 kilometers (200 miles) of the 
U.S.-Canadian border. With this action, this proceeding is terminated.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 21, 1997.
