Maybe the county for Skagway can be fixed too. It hasn't worked for very long time.

Skagway-Yakutat-Angoon County Alaska - FCC Licenses
https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=87&tab=fcc

Should be ' Skagway–Hoonah–Angoon '

Skagway–Yakutat–Angoon Census Area. After Yakutat was incorporated as a consolidated-city borough on September 22, 1992, it was renamed Skagway–Hoonah–Angoon Census Area; When Skagway followed suit on June 20, 2007, the census area assumed its current name.

So what you are saying is Skagway and Yakutat are actually independent cities, and need to be separated out, correct?

Any then the current county entry needs to be renamed to Hoonah–Angoon

Use whatever County name the main FCC database is using.

Trying reviewing the FCC search on this page.
The custom FCC data search works for "Skagway-Hoonah-Angoon" or "Skagway" and showing FCC licenses hits.
No hits for Skagway-Yakutat-Angoon. Because it's the old county name.

Found some info online...
