The Notice of Proposed Rule Making in this proceeding stated that Appaloosa Broadcasting Company's rulemaking petition was filed as part of a hybrid application and rulemaking proposal involving its concurrently filed minor change application (File No. BPH-20070822AAL). See 73 FR 4513, published January 25, 2008. In this application, Appaloosa proposes the substitution of Channel 245A for Channel 244C2 at Laramie, the reallotment of Channel 245A to Nunn, Colorado, and the associated modification of its license for Station KIMX(FM). The modification of Laramie license is contingent upon the channel substitution at Wheatland. The Report and Order notes that Appaloosa's application is being granted simultaneously with the release of the Report and Order.

Channel 247A at Wheatland was allotted in MB Docket No. 05-98. See 71 FR 4527, published January 27, 2006. This vacant FM channel was inadvertently removed from the FM Table of Allotments in MB Docket 05-210. See 71 FR 76208, published December 20, 2006. As stated above, we are substituting Channel 286A for vacant Channel 247A at Wheatland, Wyoming, to accommodate the Station KIMX(FM) hybrid application.
