Exhibits
Exhibit 38
Description:
REQUEST FOR TEMPORARY OPERATION IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE FAA

EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION (EMF), THE LICENSEE OF FM RADIO STATION KLVB, 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 KLVB 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, KLVB IS SILENT PURSUANT TO A NOTIFICATION OF OFF-AIR AND REQUEST FOR STA FILED ON APRIL 6, 2011. SEE FCC FILE NO. BLSTA-20110406ADB. AS DETAILED IN THAT REQUEST, KLVB HAS BEEN SILENT SINCE APRIL 1, 2011. EMF BUILT THE KLVB 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 KLVB AFTER RECEIVING NOTIFICATION FROM THE KLVB TOWER OPERATOR THAT IT RECEIVED AN FAA NOTICE OF PRESUMED HAZARD RELATED TO KLVB. THE NOTICE INDICATED THAT KLVB 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 CONTINUED TO WORK WITH THE FAA IN AN EFFORT TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE, AND IN RECENT MONTHS HAS MADE SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS. LAST JUNE, THE FAA RELEASED THE RESULTS OF AN AERONAUTICAL STUDY THE AGENCY CONDUCTED REGARDING KLVB'S ANTENNA WHICH FOUND THAT THE STRUCTURE DID NOT EXCEED THE FAA'S OBSTRUCTION STANDARDS AND WOULD NOT BE A HAZARD TO AIR NAVIGATION CONTINGENT ON CHANGING THE ILS FREQUENCY AT MATHER FIELD.   FURTHERMORE, EMF HAS RECEIVED PERMISSION FROM THE COUNTY OF SACRAMENTO TO PROCEED WITH THE MATHER FIELD ILS FREQUENCY CHANGE PENDING FORMAL APPROVAL FROM THE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. IF ALL GOES ACCORDING TO PLAN, EMF ANTICIPATES RETURNING KLVB TO THE AIR IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS.

IN THE INTERIM, EMF HEREBY SEEKS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE WITH THE PARAMETERS CONTAINED IN KLVB'S UNDERLYING CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AND LICENSE APPLICATION FOR A TEMPORARY PERIOD COORDINATED WITH THE FAA WITH ONE SLIGHT MODIFICATION. EMF PREVIOUSLY COORDINATED WITH THE FAA AND FCC TO RESTORE SERVICE IN A SIMILAR FASHION IN APRIL 2010 AND APRIL 2011, PURSUANT TO FCC FILE NOS. BSTA-20100329AFT AND 20110329ADO.

EMF HAS COORDINATED WITH THE FAA, WHICH HAS AUTHORIZED EMF TO OPERATE KLVB FROM 12:30 AM TO 2:30 AM ON MARCH 28, 2012, IN AN EFFORT TO AVOID AUTOMATIC TERMINATION OF THE STATION LICENSE. ACCORDINGLY, EMF RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AUTHORIZATION TO OPERATE KLVB WITH THE FACILITIES AUTHORIZED IN ITS CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AT THE ABOVE MENTIONED DATE AND TIME, TO PREVENT EXPIRATION OF ITS LICENSE.
