Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of McCook Radio Group, LLC, allots Channel 271C1 to McCook, NE, as the community's fifth local FM service. At the request of The Meadowlark Group, Inc., the Commission substitutes Channel 276C for Channel 276C1 at Limon, CO, reallots Channel 276C to Parker, CO, and modifies the license of Station KAVD accordingly. To accommodate the allotment of Channel 276C to Parker, the Commission also substitutes: (1) Channel 276C3 for Channel 249C3 at Aspen, CO, and modifies the license of Station KSPN; (2) Channel 249C2 for Channel 276C2 at Avon, CO, and modifies the license of Station KZYR; (3) Channel 227A for vacant and unapplied for Channel 276A at Westcliffe, CO; (4) Channel 275CO for Channel 275C at Imperial, NE, and modifies the construction permit of Imperial Media Association. See 65 FR 4798, February 1, 2000. A filing window for Channel 271C1 at McCook, NE, will not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening this allotment for auction will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent Order.
