Village, Munds Park, Wickenburg, and Williams, Arizona

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Media Bureau grants a Counterproposal filed by Grenax 
Broadcasting II, LLC, for a new FM allotment on Channel 246C2 at Munds 
Park, Arizona, over a conflicting Petition for Rule Making and hybrid 
application filed by Univision Radio License Corporation for an 
increase in existing service by Station KHOV-FM, Wickenburg, Arizona. 
The Bureau also dismisses a Petition for Rule Making filed by Rocket 
Radio, Inc. for a new allotment at Williams, Arizona, because no 
continuing expression of interest was filed.

DATES: Effective April 23, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Andrew J. Rhodes, Media Bureau, (202) 

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This is a synopsis of the Commission's 
Report and Order, MB Docket No. 11-207, adopted February 14, 2013, and 
released February 15, 2013. See also Notice of Proposed Rule Making and 
Order to Show Cause, 77 FR 2241, published January 17, 2012. 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 Portals II, CY-A257, 445 12th Street, SW., Washington, DC 
20554. This document may also be purchased from the Commission's 
duplicating contractors, Best Copy and Printing, Inc., 445 12th Street, 
SW., Room CY-B402, Washington, DC 20554, telephone 1-800-378-3160 or 
via email www.BCPIWEB.com. The Commission will send a copy of this 
Report and Order in a report to be sent to Congress and the 
Governmental Accountability Office, pursuant to the Congressional 
Review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).
    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 1980 do not apply 
to this proceeding.
    To accommodate the new allotment at Munds Park, the Bureau also 
substitutes Channel 281C for vacant Channel 247C at First Mesa, 
Arizona, at reference coordinates 35-41-09 NL and 110-21-43 WL. The 
reference coordinates for Channel 246C2 at Munds Park are 34-58-06 NL 
and 111-30-29 WL.
    In comparing the new allotment at Munds Park and the proposed 
increase in existing service at Wickenburg, Arizona, the Bureau 
recognized that the Wickenburg proposal would provide a second full-
time reception service to 264 persons. However, the Bureau found that 
this was de minimis and did not trigger Priority 2 of the FM Allotment 
Priorities. The Munds Park proposal was preferred over the Wickenburg 
proposal under Priority 4, other public interest matters. Although the 
increase in existing service at Wickenburg would provide third and 
fourth reception services to some underserved populations, the Bureau 
determined on balance that they do not outweigh the need for a second 
local or first competitive service at Munds Park.
