47 CFR Part 73

[DA 00-865; MM Docket No. 97-106, RM-9044, RM-9741]

Radio Broadcasting Services; Cheyenne, Wyoming and Gering, Nebraska.

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: The Allocations Branch at the request of petitioner, TSB II, Inc. allots Channel 280C2 at Cheyenne as that community's 12th local aural service, substitutes Channel 239C3 for Channel 280C1 at Gering, Nebraska and modifies Station's KOLT-FM license accordingly. See, 62 FR 15870 (April 3, 1997) The Branch determined that a new allotment at Cheyenne was preferable to a counterproposal of two station upgrade and one downgrade. Each channel can be allotted to its respective community in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements. The reference coordinates for a Channel 280C2 allotment at Cheyenne, Wyoming, are 41-08-17 North Latitude and 104-48-22 West Longitude. The reference coordinates for Channel 239C3 at Gering, Nebraska are 41-51-50 North Latitude and 103-42-20 West Longitude.

DATES: Effective May 30, 2000.
