]. Petitioner, one of sixteen applicants for Channel 288A at
Hilton Head Island, was awarded the construction permit in the
Initial Decision of Administrative Law Judge Joseph Stirmer,
released May 31, 1984, FCC 84D-38. The decision was upheld,
in pertinent part, in separate decisions by the Review Board
and Commission. See Decision, released December 7, 1984, FCC
84R-87, Memorandum Opinion and Order, released January 3,
1986, FCC 86-667. Three of the parties seeking the construction
permit, Plantation Broadcasting Corporation, Heritage Broadcasting
Corporation, and Women's Broadcasting Coalition, Inc.,
have filed an appeal of the denial of their applications to the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Therefore, since the petitioner's interest is dependent on a
favorable decision, final action herein may be contingent upon
the outcome of the appeals.
2 Station WIXV has been granted a construction permit
(BPH-8510201F) to move its transmitter site and operate with
Class Cl facilities. Should a license be issued specifying the new
location and changed facilities, the allocation of Channel 291C2
at Hilton Head Island would only require a 4.1 kilometer (2.6
mile) east site restriction.
