Exhibit 34
Description:
BASIS FOR STA

GOLD COAST BROADCASTING, LLC, LICENSEE OF KVTA, VENTURA, CALIFORNIA HAS MADE SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS IN REPAIRING THE CONTROLLER BOARD THAT CONTROLS PATTERN SWITCHING FOR KVTA.

THE KVTA TRANSMITTER HAS BEEN REPAIRED AND NOW PRODUCES LICENSED DAY AND NIGHT POWER. THE PHASE MONITOR READINGS FOR DAY AND NIGHT ARE WITHIN LIMITS. HOWEVER, TWO OF THE THREE MONITOR POINTS AND ONE OF THE TWO NIGHTIME MONITOR POINTS ARE OUT OF COMPLIANCE. OUR CONSULTANTS ARE PROVIDING A QUOTE TO DO AN ANALYSIS ON WHY THE MONITOR POINTS ARE OUT OF COMPLIANCE. THIS IS THE LAST STEP IN COMPLETING THIS REPAIR PROJECT.

GOLD COAST BROADCASTING LLC, THEREFORE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF ITS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO CONTINUE OPERATING AT VARIANCE OF ITS AUTHORIZED LICENSE WHILE THESE FINAL REPAIRS CAN BE MADE.
