Exhibit 21
Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES WARRANTING GRANT OF STA

THE ORIGINAL DESIGN SET FORTH IN THE CONSTRUCTION PERMIT FOR WJJA-DT CONTEMPLATED USE OF WJJA'S EXISTING ANDREW ALP-32 ANTENNA IN COMBINATION WITH THE NEW CHANNEL 48 DIGITAL FACILITY. IT WAS INTENDED THAT BOTH STATIONS WOULD OPERATE OFF THE SAME ANTENNA IN BOTH ANALOG AND DIGITAL MODES.   TV-49, INC. HAD OPINIONS FROM BOTH DONALD MARKLEY AND A SECOND CONSULTING ENGINEER THAT THIS COMBINATION OPERATION WOULD WORK.

IN ITS ATTEMPTS TO IMPLEMENT THIS COMBINATION OPERATION IN CONSTRUCTING ITS DIGITAL FACILITY, TV-49, INC. CONTACTED ERI FOR CLARIFICATION ON THE TECHNICAL DETAILS FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF THE COMBINATION OPERATION.   ERI HAS INFORMED THE LICENSEE THAT, IN FACT, THE BANDWIDTH OF THE EXISTING ANTENNA IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO ACCOMMODATE THE ADDITIONAL DIGITAL BANDWIDTH REQUIRED FOR COMBINATION OF CHANNEL 48 INTO THE EXISTING ANTENNA SO THAT WJJA COULD OPERATE ON BOTH ITS ANALOG (CHANNEL 49) AND DIGITAL (CHANNEL 48) CHANNELS, AT FULL POWER. GIVEN THE PRIOR ENGINEERING OPINIONS, THIS SITUATION WAS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE BY TV-49, INC., AND THE INABILITY TO COMBINE THE SIGNALS INTO THE EXISTING WJJA ANTENNA WILL DELAY THE FINAL CONSTRUCTION OF WJJAS FULL POWER DIGITAL FACILITY.

WJJA NEEDS SOME ADDITIONAL TIME TO RESEARCH A VIABLE RESOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM. ITS ENGINEER IS SCHEDULED TO ATTEND THE NAB CONVENTION IN THE COMING WEEK APRIL 23 - 27, 2006, TO SPEAK TO ERI AND POSSIBLY TO OTHER DIGITAL ANTENNA MANUFACTURERS REGARDING USE OF A DIFFERENT ANTENNA WHICH WILL ACCOMMODATE THE COMBINATION FULL POWER OPERATION.

IN THE MEANTIME, WJJA HAS A LOW POWER ANTENNA WHICH IS ALREADY MOUNTED ON ITS TOWER WHICH WAS PLANNED FOR USE AS AN AUXILIARY, ANTENNA, AND CAN OPERATE ITS DIGITAL FACILITY USING THAT ANTENNA AT LOW POWER, AS SPECIFIED IN THIS APPLICATION, AND TO BEGIN ITS DIGITAL OPERATION AT REDUCED POWER. SEE THE ATTACHED AZIMUTH PATTERN AND TABULATED DATA FOR THE AL 8W-48-PL ANTENNA.

WJJA WILL IMMEDIATELY ORDER NEW EQUIPMENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, AND ASSUMING A NEW ANTENNA CAN BE DELIVERED TIMELY, SHOULD BE READY TO BEGIN FULL POWER DIGITAL OPERATION BY JULY 1, 2006.

ACCORDINGLY, TV-49, INC. REQUESTS THAT THE FCC GRANT THE INSTANT REQUESTED SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE WJJA-DT AT REDUCED POWER, CONSISTENT WITH THE PARAMETERS SPECIFIED IN THE INSTANT APPLICATION.
