Additionally, to accommodate the Edgemont allotment, this document substitutes Channel 285C for Channel 286C1 at Custer, South Dakota, reallots Channel 285C from Custer to Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota, as its first local service and modifies the Station KAWK(FM) license accordingly. To facilitate this reallotment, this document substitutes Channel 283A for Channel 285A at Murdo, South Dakota; and modifies the New Station authorization to reflect this change since the Class C0 upgrade application is still pending.

Channel 289C1 can be allotted to Edgemont in compliance with the Commission's rules provided there is a site restriction of 33.3 kilometers (20.7 miles) northwest of Edgemont at coordinates 43-32-32 NL and 104-04-12 WL.

Channel 291A can be allotted to Moorcroft at the New Station current authorized site in compliance with the Commission's rules at coordinates 44-16-15 NL and 104-56-00 WL, which requires a site restriction of 1.6 kilometers (1.0 miles) northeast of Moorcroft. Channel 260C2 can be allotted to Gillette at the current licensed site of FM Station KXXL in compliance with the Commission's rules at coordinates 44-13-50 NL and 105-27-45 WL, which requires a site restriction of 7.4 kilometers (4.6 miles) southeast of Gillette. Channel 256A can be allotted to Pine Haven in compliance with the Commission's rules at city reference coordinates 44-21-28 NL and 104-48-36 WL.

Channel 298A can be allotted to Wheatland in compliance with the Commission's rules at city reference coordinates 42-03-16 NL and 104-57-08 WL. Additionally, Channel 285C can be allotted to Ellsworth AFB at the current licensed site of Station KAWK(FM) in compliance with the Commission's rules at coordinates 43-44-41 NL and 103-28-52 WL, which requires a site restriction of 55 kilometers (34.2 miles) southwest of Ellsworth AFB. Lastly, Channel 283A can be allotted to Murdo at the New Station current authorized site in compliance with the Commission's rules at coordinates 43-53-24 NL and 100-43-06 WL, which requires a site restriction of 0.5 kilometers (0.3 miles) west of Murdo.
