Final rule.


This document substitutes Channel 257C1 for Channel 257A at Red Lodge, MT, and modifies the license for Station KMXE-FM, to specify operation on Channel 257C1 in response to a petition filed by Silver Rock Communications, Inc. See 65 FR 10043, February 25, 2000.

The coordinates for Channel 257C1 at Red Lodge are 45-11-39 and 109-20-32.
