   47 C.F.R. S: 1.89.

   The license for station WPAS758 authorizes the New Jersey Turnpike
   Authority to operate a 1610 kHz station at the Turnpike Service Area 4N in
   Moorestown, New Jersey at the coordinates 39-58-49.4 North Latitude
   074-35-23.6 West Longitude. However, a coordinate discrepancy exists on
   the license for this location. The station is actually operating at the
   coordinates 39-58-49.4 North Latitude 074-53-23.6 West Longitude.
   Furthermore, the 1610 kHz stations operating at Interchange 3 in Woodbury,
   New Jersey and at the John Fenwick Service area in Old Mans Township, New
   Jersey were once authorized under the license for station WPEI425.
   However, that license expired on March 8, 2004.
