December 26, 1986, was subsequently been declared a holiday
pursuant to Sec. 1.4(d) of the Commission's Rules. Accordingly,
the final day for filing comments was December 29, 1986,
the next business day. See 47 C.F.R. Sec. 1.4(i).
2 Although Contemporary did not specifically request an
extension of time to file reply comments, favorable action on its
request would also necessitate additional time to submit reply
By the Chief, Policy and Rules Division:
1. On October 9, 1986, the Commission adopted The
Notice of Proposed Rule Making, 51 FR 41358, November
14, 1986. proposing the allocation of FM Channels 223A
and 230A to Columbia, Missouri. Comments were due
December 26, 1986. 1 and reply comments are due January
2. On December 19, 1986, counsel for Contemporary
Broadcasting FM ("Contemporary"), requested that the

in which Contemporary already is a party.
3. The Commission believes that adequate time has
been given for the submission of comments, and that
insufficient justification has been provided for the additional
time. Although Contemporary contends that Docket
86-410 is interrelated to the previously mentioned
Missouri cases, it has failed to establish the connection.
Furthermore, no mention of any other proceeding was
made in the Notice for Docket 86-410. The requested
channels could provide Columbia with its fourth and fifth
Class A broadcast service. In accordance with the provisions
of Sec. 1.46(a) of the Rules, the Commission will
not routinely grant extension requests. No basis for an
exemption to that rule appears to exist in this case.
4. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED, That the request by
Contemporary for an extension of timed to file comments
