AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: This document requests comments on a Petition for Rule Making

be allotted to Toquerville, Utah consistent with the minimum distance 
separation requirements of the Commission's Rules with a site

Toquerville. The reference coordinates are 37-34-28 NL and 112-56-33
