In the Matter of

Amendment of Section 73.202(b),
MB Docket No. 12-225
Table of Allotments,
FM Broadcast Stations.
(Greenup, Illinois)


(Proceeding Terminated)

Adopted: January 24, 2013

Released: January 25, 2013

By the Assistant Chief, Audio Division, Media Bureau:
1. The Audio Division has before it a Notice of Proposed Rule Making,1 issued in response to a
Petition for Rule Making filed by Word Power, Inc. (“Petitioner”). Petitioner filed comments. No
counterproposals or other comments were received in response to this Notice. For the reasons discussed
below, we amend the FM Table of Allotments, Section 73.202(b) of the Commission’s Rules,2 by
allotting Channel *230A at Greenup, Illinois, as the community’s first local service


The Notice proposed to allot Channel 230A at Greenup, Illinois,3 and reserve it for
noncommercial educational (“NCE”) use. As stated in the Notice, Petitioner is technically precluded
from using a reserved channel (Channels 200 through 220), and the proposal would provide a first and/or
second NCE radio service to at least 10 percent of the population within the 1 mV/m contour of the
proposed station. In response to the Notice, Petitioner filed comments, reaffirming its interest in the
proposed Greenup allotment and its NCE reservation. Petitioner states that it will apply for Channel
*230A at Greenup, if allotted, and will promptly construct the NCE facilities if authorized.


Accordingly, we allot a first local service to Greenup, Illinois (2010 U.S. Census
population of 1,513 persons), and reserve Channel *230A for NCE use under Priority (3).4 A staff
engineering analysis confirms that the proposed allotment at Greenup would provide a first and/or second
NCE radio service to 67.5 percent (21,149 persons) of the total population of 31,338 persons. Channel
*230A can be allotted to Greenup consistent with the distance separation requirements of Section 73.207
of the Commission’s Rules with a site restriction 4.6 kilometers (2.9 miles) southwest of the community.
The reference coordinates for Channel *230A are 39-12-38 NL and 88-11-15 WL.
