In its application, which it filed before the Commission adopted the 28 GHz band plan, VisionStar proposes to use 1000 MHz of spectrum at 18.55-18.8 and 19 .45-20.2 GHz for its service downlinks. 19. In the interest of expediting the licensing process, we grant here th at portion of VisionStar's downlink request that is consistent with the 28 GHz Band Plan and where specific operation frequencies can be authorized. Specifically, we authorize V isionStar to operate a system with service downlinks in the 19.7-20.2 GHz band. We will

Additionally, a site restrict ion of the magnitude required to accommodate Channel 260C2 at Melba, Idaho, would place th e transmitter near the outer limits for a Class C2 station (32.6 kilometers (20.2 miles) is t he maximum allowable distance for the provision of a 70 dBu signal by a Class C2 station). Therefore, petitioner should provide additional engineering showings in its comments to de monstrate that its proposal could meet the coverage requirements of Section 73.315 of the Comm ission's Rules.

- 276C3, if allotted. No other comments were received. 2. We believe the public interest would be served by allotting Channel 27 6C3 to Huntsville since it would provide the community with its first local aural transmission se rvice. Channel 276C3 can be allotted to Huntsville in compliance with the Commission's minimum dista nce separation requirements with a site restriction of 20.2 kilometers (12.6 miles) northeast in order to avoid a short-spacing conflict with the licensed operation of Station KRSP-FM, Channel 278C, Salt Lake City, Utah. 3. Accordingly, pursuant to the authority contained in Sections 4(i),5(c) (1), 303(g) and (r) and 307(b) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and Sections 0.61, 0. 204(b) and 0.283 of the Commission's Rules, IT
