47 CFR Part 73

[DA 12-1207]

Radio Broadcasting Services; Westley, CA

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Audio Division unreserved Channel 239A at Westley, 
California for noncommercial educational (``NCE'') use by operation of 
law since none of the applications in NCE Reserved Allotment Group No. 
8 would provide the requisite level of first and second NCE use. The 
window period for filing applications for Channel 239A at Westley, 
California will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of 
opening this allotment for auction for commercial use will be addressed 
by the Commission in a subsequent order. Accordingly, we are amending 
the FM Table of Allotments by removing the NCE ``asterisk'' from 
Channel 239A at Westley, California.

DATES: Effective August 20, 2012 and applicable July 27, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Wagner, Media Bureau, (202) 
418-2700 or Rolanda F. Smith, Media Bureau, (202) 418-2700.
