Exhibit 4
Description:
EXHIBIT 4

EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION ('EMF') HEREBY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE KHCO WITH A DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA (A SCALA CA-5 ORIENTED AT 270 TRUE), NOT THE AUTHORIZED ANTENNA. PREVIOUISLY THE POWER FOR KHCO(FM) DROPPED BELOW NINETY PERCENT DUE TO HIGH VSWR. EMF NOTIFIED THE COMMISSION OF THE DROP IN POWER AND THEN REQUESTED AN STA TO OPERATE AT REDUCED POWER. HOWEVER EMF WAS ABLE TO RETURN TO FULL POWER OPERATIONS WITH THE REPLACEMENT ANTENNA AND THEREFORE REQUESTS THIS STA TO OPERATE WITH THE SCALA ANTENNA. EMF HAS ORDERED THE LICENSED ANTENNA AND WILL BRING THE STATION INTO COMPLAINCE WITH ITS AUTHORIZATION AS SOON AS THE ANTENNA IS DELIVERED.
