The FCC has upheld MANA’O RADIO's Petition to Deny the tentative grant of a new noncommercial FM at LAHAINA, MAUI, HI to LES SERAPHIM and has granted the channel to MANA'O instead.
MANA'O's objection involved SERAPHIM's claim of reasonable assurance of the availablity of the proposed tower site. The Commission, examining the statements of the tower owner and SERAPHIM's counsel, determined that SERAPHIM did not have reasonable assurance of the tower site.
