Exhibits
Exhibit 4
Description:
JUSTIFICATION FOR STA REQUEST

KXXN OWNS AND OPERATES A HARRIS Z5 FM TRANSMITTER WHICH IS LOCATED AT ITS LICENSED SITE, NORTH OF IOWA PARK, TEXAS. THIS TRANSMITTER WAS ACQUIRED IN THE PURCHASE OF THE STATION, AND HAS HAD PROBLEMS IN THE PAST.

SEVERAL WEEKS AGO, THE TRANSMITTER STARTED TO OPERATE ERRATICALLY-POWERING DOWN AND RETURNING TO PROPER POWER OUTPUT. THE BEHAVIOR CONTINUED TO THE POINT THAT KEEPING THE FACILITY WOULD BE DISRUPTIVE TO THE STATION'S OPERATION AND AUDIENCE, AS WELL AS POTENTIALLY DAMAGING THE TRANSMITTER FURTHER.

SO THAT A CAREFUL AND METHODICAL PERIOD OF REPAIRS COULD BE MADE TO THE KXXN TRANSMITTER WITHOUT FURTHER DISRUPTION, A DECISION WAS MADE BY MANAGEMENT TO UTILIZE A PREVIOUSLY AVAILABLE BACKUP SITE FOR KXXN OPERATION.

THIS SITE IS USED BY SISTER STATION KWFB AND IS LOCATED INSIDE THE CITY LIMITS OF WICHITA FALLS, TEXAS AND HAS BEEN USED BY THE LICENSEE DURING PREVIOUS TIMES WHEN THE KXXN TRANSMITTER WAS NOT OPERATIONAL.

AS BEFORE, THE PROPOSED OPERATION OF KXXN UNDER THE REQUESTED STA WILL BE SUCH THAT THE 1 MV/M CONTOUR GENERATED BY FULL POWER OPERATION WILL NOT BE EXCEEDED BY THE PROPOSED TEMPORARY OPERATION AT THE NEW TOWER SITE. IT'S BEEN DETERMINED THAT AN ERP OF 0.07 KW (70 WATTS H&V) WILL MEET THAT REQUIREMENT.

ONCE THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED, PARTS WILL BE PURCHASED AND THE MAIN TRANSMITTER BE RETURNED TO SERVICE.

IN AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION, THE LICENSEE REQUESTS 120 DAYS OF STA WHILE THE MAIN TRANSMITTER IS BEING REPAIRED.
