47 CFR Part 73

[MM Docket No. 97-168; RM-9103 and RM-9182]

Radio Broadcasting Services; Arcadia & Ellington, MO, Carbondale, 
IL & Tiptonville, TN

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: Action in this document allots Channel 280A to Arcadia, 
Missouri, as that community's first local service in response to a 
petition filed by Iron County Broadcasting Company. See 62 FR 42225, 
August 6, 1997. The coordinates for Channel 280A at Arcadia are 37-32-
30 and 90-43-00. There is is a site restriction 9.3 kilometers (5.8 
miles) southwest of the community. In response to the counterproposal 
filed by Lyle Broadcasting Corporation, we will substitute Channel 
268C1 for Channel 268B at Carbondale, Illinois, at coordinates 37-37-00 
and 89-38-30 and modify the license for Station WCIL accordingly. To 
accommodate the allotments at Arcadia and Carbondale, we will 
substitute Channel 294A for Channel 280A at Ellington, Missouri, at 
coordinates 37-13-27 and 90-51-13 and modify the construction permit 
for Station KAUL to specify Channel 294A. We shall also put a new site 
restriction on vacant Channel 267C3 at Tiptonville, Tennessee, using 
coordinates 36-19-41 and 89-23-18. With this action, this proceeding is 
terminated. A filing window for Channel 280A at Arcadia, Missouri, will 
not be opened at this time. Instead, the issue of opening a filing 
window for this channel will be addressed by the Commission in a 
subsequent order.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 2, 1998.
