Any changes to the Atlantic City allocatims in the h - 25 Me/s portion of the radio spectrum could have the effect of negating the acoompl.is aaente just recwttly- attained. Since the very Brest and costly task of adjusting to the 2,947 allocations was not generally completed until very recently, it is our view that considerably more aiVo ienoe .shoU]A be had with the Atlantic City allocations in this portion of the =41o spectrum before changes are considered. For these reasons, we have indicated in oar proposals to the 195q' Radio Conference that we could not be in favor of changes in the distribution of radio epectrxzi space to the several radio Services in the 'long distance" portion of the radio spectrums between approx mat el.y 4 and 25 Me/e.
