1. The Commission has before it the petition for rule
making filed by Jesse N. Williams, Jr. ("petitioner") requesting
the substitution of Channel 291C2 for Channel
288A and the substitution of Channel 300A for Channel

permittee of a new station on Channel 288A at Hilton
Head Island, also requests the modification of its .permit
to specify operation on the higher powered channel.' He
states that he will promptly file an application specifying
the new facilities should the channel be allocated.

Island in compliance with the Commission's minimum
