The following changes in the Media Bureau's Consolidated Data Base Systems were made to reflect the following reserved assignments. Thus, to accommodate the allotment of Channel 247C3 to Owyhee, Nevada, Channel 249C was substituted for Channel 248C, Station KPHD(FM), Elko, Nevada, and reassigned to Melba, Idaho, as Melba's second local aural transmission service. The coordinates for Channel 249C at Melba are 42-51-53 NL and 116-28-39 WL. To reduce the loss area created by the relocation of Station KPHD from Elko, Nevada, to Melba, Idaho, the Commission substituted Channel 237C for Channel 237C1 at Station KRJC(FM), Elko, Nevada, at coordinates of 40-54-35 NL and 115-49-05 WL. To accommodate the allotment of Channel 249C to Melba, Idaho, the Commission substituted Channel 274C for Channel 250C at Station KQFC(FM), Boise, Idaho, at coordinates of 43-45-21 NL and 116-05-54 WL. To accommodate the allotment of Channel 274C to Boise, the Commission has substituted Channel 278C for Channel 277C at Station KSAS-FM, Caldwell, Idaho, at coordinates of 43-45-18 NL and 116-05-52 WL. In order to allow the allotment of Channel 278C to Caldwell, the Commission substituted Channel 233C0 for Channel 279C at Station KSKI-FM, Sun Valley, Idaho, at coordinates of 43-41-06 NL and 114-22-57 WL. To accommodate the allotment of Channel 233C0 to Sun Valley, the Commission previously substituted Channel 260A for Channel 233C0 and, in this proceeding, has substituted Channel 260C1 for Channel 260A at Salmon, Idaho, at coordinates of 45-10-02 NL and 113-52-14 WL. To eliminate the white area created by the removal of Channel 233C0 from Salmon, Idaho, the Commission substituted Channel 225C0 for Channel 224A, Station KSRA-FM, Salmon, Idaho at coordinates of 45-08-42 NL and 114-00-36 WL. To accommodate the allotment of Channel 225C0 to Salmon, Idaho, the Commission substituted Channel 224C0 for Channel 225C at Station KEZQ(FM), West Yellowstone, Montana, and changed Station KEZQ(FM)'s community of license to Iona, Idaho, at coordinates of 43-57-10 NL and 111-52-18 WL, thus providing Iona with its first local aural transmission service. To further accommodate the allotment of Channel 233C0 to Sun Valley, Idaho, the Commission substituted Channel 224C3 for Channel 232C3 at Station KTPZ(FM), Hazelton, Idaho, at coordinates of 42-43-54 NL and 114-25-04 WL. To accommodate the allotment of Channel 274C to Boise, the Commission substituted Channel 276C3 for vacant Channel 275C3 at McCall, Idaho, at coordinates of 44-54-30 NL and 116-06-00 WL. To further accommodate the allotment of Channel 274C to Boise, Idaho, the Commission substituted Channel 276C1 for Channel 275C1 at Station KMVX(FM), Jerome, Idaho, at coordinates of 42-43-54 NL and 114-25-04 WL.
