The following table corrects population figures for the nationwide license area and MTA017, New Orleans-Baton Rouge.

The Bureau has proposed to calculate upfront payments, bidding unit amounts, and minimum opening bids using formulas that include license area population as one element of the formula. Accordingly, the new population figures result in revised upfront payments, bidding unit amounts, and minimum opening bids for the 8 nationwide licenses and 7 licenses in MTA017 available in Auction No. 41.
