Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule.


The Commission, at the request of Pappas Telecasting of America, substitutes DTV channel 52 for channel 23. See 67 FR 44791, July 5, 2002. DTV channel 52 can be allotted to Charleston, West Virginia, in compliance with the principal community coverage requirements of Section 73.625(a) at coordinates 38-30-21 N and 82-12-33 W. Since the community of Charleston is located within 400 kilometers of the U.S.-Canadian border, concurrence from the Canadian Government has been obtained for this allotment. With this action, this proceeding is terminated.
