Village, Wickenburg, and Williams, AZ; and Application of Univision 
Radio License Corporation, KHOV-FM, Wickenburg, AZ

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: This document requests comments on two mutually exclusive 
proposals that were previously being considered in MB Docket No. 08-85. 
That proceeding was terminated without considering these proposals. The 
first proposal, RM-11517, filed by Rocket Radio, Inc., proposes the 
allotment of FM Channel 287C2 at Williams, Arizona, as the community's 
second local service; the substitution of Channel 228C2 for vacant 
Channel 286C2 at Ehrenberg, Arizona; and the substitution of Channel 
281C for vacant Channel 247C at First Mesa, Arizona. Additionally, to 
facilitate the Williams allotment, we issue an Order to Show Cause to 
Univision Radio License Corporation as to why its license for Station 
KHOV-FM, Wickenburg, Arizona, should not be changed from Channel 287C2 
to Channel 286C2; and to Grenax Broadcasting II, LLC as to why its 
license for Station KBTK(FM), Kachina Village, Arizona, should not be 
modified from Channel 286C2 to Channel 246C2. See SUPPLEMENTARY 

DATES: Comments must be filed on or before February 20, 2012, and reply 
comments on or before March 6, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This is a synopsis of the Commission's 
Notice of Proposed Rule Making, MB Docket No.11-207, adopted December 
21, 2011, and released December 23, 2011. The full text of this 
Commission decision is available for inspection and copying during 
normal business hours in the FCC's Reference Information Center at

    The second proposal, RM-11518, involves a petition for rule making 
and hybrid application, filed by Univision Radio License Corporation, 
licensee of Station KHOV-FM, Wickenburg, Arizona. The application 
requests the upgrade of Station KHOV-FM, Wickenburg, from Channel 287C2 
to Channel 286C0. See File No. BPH-20080915AFP. To accommodate this 
proposal, Univision Radio License Corporation filed a petition for rule 
making proposing the same channel substitutions for the vacant 
allotments at Ehrenberg and First Mesa as proposed in the first 
proposal. Additionally, we issue an Order to Show Cause to Grenax 
Broadcasting II, LLC for the same involuntary channel to Station 
KBTX(FM), Kachina Village, Arizona, to facilitate the Wickenburg 
    This document does not contain proposed information collection 
requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 
104-13. In addition, therefore, it does not contain any proposed 
information collection burden ``for small business concerns with fewer 
than 25 employees,'' pursuant to the Small Business Paperwork Relief 
Act of 2002, Public Law 107-198, see 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(4).
    Provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act of l980 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.
    For information regarding proper filing procedures for comments, 
see 47 CFR 1.415 and 1.420.
