The Notice of Proposed Rule Making stated that Jodesha Broadcasting's rulemaking petition was filed as part of a hybrid application and rulemaking proposal involving two minor change applications. See 73 FR 75631, published December 12, 2008. In the first application (File No. BPH-20080710AJA), Jodesha proposes the upgrade of Channel 229C3 to Channel 229C0 at Ocean Shores, the reallotment of Channel 229C0 to Montesano, Washington, and the associated modification of the Station KANY(FM) license. In the second application (File No. BPH-20080710AJE), Jodesha proposes the downgrade of Channel 271C2 to Channel 271C3 at Montesano, the reallotment of Channel 271C3 to Ocean Shores, and the modification of the Station KSWW(FM) construction permit, accordingly.

The Report and Order states that the channel substitution at Port Angeles serves the public interest because it will accommodate the grant of the hybrid applications, enabling Station KANY(FM) to provide a gain in its population served. The Report and Order also grants the two applications filed by Jodesha. The reference coordinates for Channel 271A at Port Angeles are 48-06-54 NL and 123-26-36 WL.

This document does not contain new or modified information collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13.

The Commission will send a copy of this Report and Order in a report to be sent to Congress and the Government Accountability Office pursuant to the Congressional Review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).

Provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 do not apply to this proceeding.
