Exhibit 40
Description:
EXHIBIT 40

ON FEBRUARY 5, 2006, UNIVERSITY BROADCASTING, INC. ('UBI'), THE LICENSEE OF ANALOG TELEVISION STATION KGEB HAD TO REDUCE KGEB'S POWER DUE TO THE FAILURE OF THE TH680 DIACRODE TUBE IN THE ANALOG TRANSMITTER. UBI NOTIFIED THE COMMISSION ON FEBRUARY 15, 2006 OF ITS LOW POWER STATUS.

SINCE FEBRUARY 5, UBI HAS BEEN WORKING DILIGENTLY TO EITHER GET THE TUBE REPAIRED, OBTAIN A TUBE ON LOAN, OR PROCURE A BRAND NEW REPLACEMENT TUBE. UNFORTUNATLEY, THIS TUBE IS MANUFACTURED ONLY BY A FRENCH COMPANY, THALES COMPONENT CORPORATION FOR ACRODYNE. MAKING MATTERS MORE DIFFICULT IS THE FACT THAT THE TRANSMITTER MANUFACTURER HAS SINCE DISCONTINUED THIS PARTICULAR MODEL WHICH MEANS THAT IT IS MORE DIFFICULT TO FIX BROKEN TUBES OR OBTAIN NEW ONES FROM THALES (THE TUBE MANUFACTURER IN FRANCE). MOREOVER, UBI'S INSTALLATION ENGINEER HAS REPORTED THAT THERE ARE AT LEAST 5 OTHER FAILED TUBES IN THE UNITED STATES RIGHT NOW WHICH MEANS THAT THERE ARE 5 OTHER STATIONS TRYING TO GET EITHER REPLACEMENT OR LOANED TUBES FOR THEIR TRANSMITTERS.

DESPITE THESE OBSTACLES, UBI IS PURSUING ALL AVAILABLE AVENUES TO GET A WORKING TUBE SO THAT THE STATION CAN RESUME FULL POWER OPERATIONS, BUT IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME. THUS, UBI RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE AT A VARIANCE FROM ITS AUTHORIZED POWER FOR 180 DAYS WHILE IT WORKS ON OBTAINING A REPLACEMENT, FIXED OR NEW TUBE.
