The Audio Division, at the request of Black Hills Broadcasting, L.C., as modified pursuant to the counterproposal of Cumulus Licensing LLC (“Cumulus”), allots FM Channel 227A at Gearhart, Oregon. Channel 227A can be allotted at Gearhart, consistent with the minimum distance separation requirements of the Commission's rules, at coordinates 45-57-11 NL and 123-56-14 WL. In addition, the Audio Division substitutes Channel 248C3 for vacant Channel 228C3 at Manzanita, Oregon, and substitutes Channel *243C1 for vacant but applied for Channel *251C1 at Madras, Oregon. The reference coordinates for Channel 248C3 at Manzanita, Oregon, are 45-41-05 NL and 123-54-38 WL, and the reference coordinates for Channel *243C1 at Madras Oregon, are 44-50-02 NL and 120-45-55 WL. In addition, the Audio Division granted the application of Cumulus (File No. BMPH-20100805AKO) for a channel upgrade and change of community of interest for Station KNRQ-FM, from Channel 250C2 at Tualatin, Oregon, to Channel 250C1 at Aloha, Oregon.
