This document sets forth a proposal to amend the FM Table of Allotments, section 73.202(b) of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 73.202(b). The Commission requests comment on a petition filed by Farmworker Educational Network, Inc., licensee of Station KRIT(FM), Channel 230C3, Parker, Arizona. Petitioner proposes the substitution of Channel 252B1 for Channel 230C3 at Parker, Arizona, and the modification of the license of Station KRIT(FM) accordingly. Channel 252B1 can be allotted at Parker in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 12.0 km (7.5 miles) north of Parker. The coordinates for Channel 252B1 at Parker are 34-14-45 North Latitude and 114-16-14 West Longitude. The proposed allotment is located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the United States-Mexico border, so it will be necessary to obtain concurrence in the allotment from the Government of Mexico. Competing expressions of interest will not be accepted.


Comments must be filed on or before August 30, 2004, and reply comments on or before September 14, 2004.
