(Proceeding Terminated)

Adopted: August 1, 2013

By the Assistant Chief, Audio Division, Media Bureau:
1. The Audio Division considers herein the Notice of Proposed Rule Making1, issued in response
to a Petition for Rule Making ("Petition") filed by Big Cat Broadcasting, LLC ("Big Cat"), permittee of
FM Channel 277A, Goree, Texas. For the reasons discussed below, we dismiss the Petition for Rule
Making and terminate the proceeding.
2. The Notice proposed to amend the FM Table of Allotments, Section 73.202(b) of the
Commission's rules,2 by substituting Channel 277A for vacant Channel 297A at Knox City, Texas. The
Petition was part of a "hybrid" application3 to allow the station at Goree, Texas to operate on FM Channel
298A rather than FM Channel 277A.4
3. While this proceeding was pending, Big Cat's application was dismissed on December 21,
2012 because the construction permit for Channel 277A, Goree, Texas expired on December 14, 2012.
4. Each component of a "hybrid" proposal is contingent upon the other, and "the dismissal,
denial or return of any component filing will result in the dismissal or return of all the related filings."5
Because Big Cat's application has been dismissed, we also dismiss its Petition for Rule Making.
