 47 CFR Part 73

[MB Docket No. 13-52; RM-11693; DA 13-1379]

Radio Broadcasting Services; Matagorda, Texas

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Audio Division, at the request of Tejas Broadcasting Ltd., 
LLP, allots FM Channel 291A and deletes FM Channel 252A at Matagorda, 
Texas. This allotment change is part of a hybrid rule making and FM 
application proposal. Channel 291A can be allotted at Matagorda, 
consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the 
Commission's rules, at city reference coordinates of 28-41-25 NL and 
95-58-02 WL, without site restriction. Concurrence by the Government of 
Mexico is required because Channel 291A at Matagorda, Texas, is located 
within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexican border. Mexican 
concurrence has been requested for this vacant allotment, but has not 
yet been received. If a construction permit for Channel 291A at 
Matagorda, Texas is granted prior to receipt of formal concurrence by 
the Mexican government, the authorization will include the following 
condition: ``Operation with the facilities specified herein for 
Matagorda, Texas, is subject to modification, suspension, or 
termination without right to hearing, if found by the Commission to be 
necessary in order to conform to the Mexico-United States FM Broadcast 
Agreement, or if specifically objected to by the Government of 
Mexico.'' See Supplementary Information infra.

DATES: Effective August 16, 2013.
