ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

In response to a petition filed by Best Broadcasting, Inc., the Commission issued a Notice of Proposed Rule Making proposing the substitution of Channel 247C2 for Channel 247C3 at Moberly, Missouri, and modification of the license for Station KCSX accordingly, with additional substitutions at Malta Bend, MO and Chillicothe, MO. See 65 FR 45745, July 25, 2000. In response to a counterproposal filed by Best Broadcasting, Inc. and First Broadcasting Company, this document substitutes Channel 247C1 for Channel 247C3 at Moberly, Missouri, reallots Channel 247C1 from Moberly to Lee's Summit, MO and modifies the authorization for Station KCSX to specify operation at Lee's Summit on Channel 247C1. The coordinates for Channel 247C1 at Lee's Summit are 39-04-20 and 94-35-45. To accommodate the allotment at Lee's Summit, we shall make the following changes: substitute Channel 233C for Channel 247C, Topeka, Kansas (39-00-19 & 96-02-58), substitute Channel 248C1 for Channel 233C1 at Junction City, Kansas (39-00-53 & 96-52-15), substitute Channel 237C3 for Channel 232C3 at Humboldt, Kansas (37-43-21 & 95-33-41) , substitute Channel 249A for Channel 237A at Burlington, Kansas (39-10-08 & 95-39-07), substitute Channel 276C3 for Channel 234C3 at Auburn, Nebraska (40-27-57 & 95-45-38),[1] substitute Channel 238C3 for Channel 276C3 at Marysville, Kansas (39-56-06 & 94-47-33), substitute Channel 280C3 for Channel 243C3 at Malta Bend, Missouri (39-21-59 & 93-24-12), substitute Channel 253A for Channel 280C3 at Chillicothe, Missouri (39-43-40 & 93-35-43), substitute Channel 249C2 for Channel 246C3 at La Monte, Missouri (38-48-23 & 93-09-08), substitute Channel 246A for Channel 249A at Warsaw, Missouri (38-20-41 & 93-23-10), substitute Channel 248A for Channel 249A at Nevada, Missouri (37-52-06 & 94-20-01). We shall also allot Channel 247C3 at Madison, Missouri, as a first local service at coordinates 39-24-37 and 92-10-58. The issue of opening the allotment at Madison for auction will be addressed by the Commission in a subsequent order.
