Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

In this document, the Commission grants the request of Be-More Broadcasting (“Be-More”) to withdraw its petition for rule making to substitute Channel 291B for Channel 291B1 at Exmore, VA, reallot Channel 291B to Cheriton, VA, as its first local aural service, and modify its construction permit to specify Cheriton as its community of license. The Commission grants the request of Great Scott Broadcasting (“Great Scott”), licensee of Station WKHI(FM) (“WKHI”), to substitute Channel 298B1 for Channel 298B at Exmore, VA, reallot Channel 298B1 to Fruitland, MD, as its first local aural transmission service, and modify Station WKHI's license accordingly. The Notice of Proposed Rule Making, in this proceeding, 64 FR 70670 (December 17, 1999), included both Be-More's proposal and Great Scott's proposal because grant of both proposals would have resulted in Exmore, Virginia, losing its only local aural transmission service. The Commission conditioned the grant of program test authority for Great Scott's future facilities in Fruitland on Be-More's receipt of a license for its new FM station at Exmore, Virginia. The coordinates for Station WKHI's new location in Fruitland, Maryland, are: 38-11-32 North Latitude and 75-41-58 West Longitude.

DATES:

Effective July 2, 2001.
