Assignment of Channel 12 for noncommercial educational use in Booneville, Miss., has been proposed by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) in a May, 1972, Notice of Proposed Rule Making. The Notice said the allocation of Channel 12, part of the Very High Frequency (VHF) bandwidth, was requested by the Mississippi Authority for Educational Television (MAET); and that the MAET had argued although there is an unassigned Ultra High Frequency (UHF) channel in Boonesville, a VHF channel would provide better reception at less cost. The FCC reported that TV broadcasters in Chatanooga, Tenn., Augusta, Ga., and Jackson, Miss., expressed concern about how the proposed channel would affect reception of their signals. The FCC invited comments from TV stations which may have to make technical changes to accommodate the proposed channel, to determine whether, if the allocation is made, it should be on a restricted basis.
