AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Commission, at the request of WRUS, Inc., substitutes Channel 244C2 for Channel 244A at Bowling Green, Kentucky, reallots Channel 244C2 from Bowling Green to Auburn, Kentucky, and modifies Station WBVR-FM's license accordingly. To accommodate the reallotment, we also (a) substitute Channel 255A for vacant Channel 244A at Byrdstown, Tennessee; and (b) substitute Channel 297A for Channel 244A at Bardstown, Kentucky, reallot Channel 297A from Bardstown to Lebanon Junction, Kentucky, and modify Station WOKH(FM)'s license accordingly (RM-9910). At the request of WRUS, Inc., we dismiss the petition to substitute Channel 244C3 for Channel 244A at Bowling Green, Kentucky (RM-9755). See 64 FR 67535, December 2, 1999. Channel 244C2 can be reallotted to Auburn in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements with a site restriction of 30.9 kilometers (19.2 miles) northeast at petitioner's requested site. The coordinates for Channel 244C2 at Auburn are 37-02-29 North Latitude and 86-26-36 West Longitude. See SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION, infra.

Effective April 16, 2001.
