Exhibits
Exhibit 38
Description:
STA REQUEST

EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION (EMF), THE LICENSEE OF FM RADIO STATION KLVS, CITRUS HEIGHTS, CALIFORNIA, PURSUANT TO SECTIONS 73.1635 AND 73.561 OF THE COMMISSION'S RULES, IS REQUESTING SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY (AN STA) TO ALLOW KLVS TO TEMPORARILY OPERATE AT THE SITE AUTHORIZED IN ITS CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AND PENDING LICENSE APPLICATION. SEE FCC FILE NOS. BPED-20070119AFL AND BLED-20080402ACU.

CURRENTLY, KLVS IS SILENT PURSUANT TO AN STA FILED ON MAY 28, 2008, AND HAS BEEN SILENT SINCE APRIL 30, 2008 (NOT APRIL 29, 2008 AS INADVERTENTLY STATED IN THE STA). EMF BUILT THE KLVS FACILITIES PURSUANT TO ITS CONSTRUCTION PERMIT (BPED-20070119AFL), COMMENCED OPERATIONS AND FILED THE NECESSARY LICENSE APPLICATION ON APRIL 2, 2008 (BLED-20080402ACU). SUBSEQUENTLY, EMF WAS FORCED TO TEMPORARILY DISCONTINUE OPERATIONS AT KLVS AFTER RECEIVING NOTIFICATION FROM THE KLVS TOWER OPERATOR THAT IT RECEIVED AN FAA NOTICE OF PRESUMED HAZARD RELATED TO KLVS. THE NOTICE INDICATED THAT KLVS TRANSMISSION ON 99.5MHZ, THROUGH THE INTERACTION WITH ANOTHER STATION, COULD POSSIBLY CREATE INTERMODULATION INTERFERENCE TO A FREQUENCY USED BY THE FAA AS PART OF THE APPROACH TO A LOCAL AIRPORT.

EMF HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THE FAA TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE AND IS MOVING TOWARD A RESOLUTION THAT WOULD CHANGE THE FREQUENCY OF THE FAA LOCALIZER TO RESOLVE THE PREDICTED INTERFERENCE ISSUE. HOWEVER, EMF AND THE FAA WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FULLY RESOLVE THIS ISSUE BEFORE THE ONE YEAR SILENT PERIOD FOR THE STATION RUNS OUT ON APRIL 30, 2009. EMF HAS RECEIVED AUTHORIZATION FROM THE FAA TO OPERATE KLVS ON APRIL 17, 2009, FROM APPROXIMATELY 12:30AM TO 2:30AM PACIFIC TIME IN AN EFFORT TO AVOID AUTOMATIC TERMINATION OF THE STATION LICENSE. SEE ATTACHED. ACCORDINGLY, EMF RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AUTHORIZATION TO OPERATE KLVS WITH THE FACILITIES AUTHORIZED IN ITS CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AT THE ABOVEMENTIONED DATE AND TIME, TO PREVENT EXPIRATION OF ITS LICENSE.
