Exhibit 36
Description:
EXHIBIT 36

MONTECITO TELEVISION LICENSE CORPORATION OF WICHITA (MONTECITO) HOLDS AN STA FOR KSNG-DT TO PROVIDE LOW POWER DTV SERVICE TO GARDEN CITY, KANSAS (FILE NO. BEDSTA-20060104ADC). KSNG IS A SATELLITE STATION OF KSNW(TV). AS SUCH, KSNG WAS NOT REQUIRED TO CONSTRUCT FULL POWER DIGITAL FACILITIES BY THE MAXIMIZATION-REPLICATION DEADLINE, BUT RETAINS MAXIMIZATION-REPLICATION INTERFERENCE PROTECTION BY VIRTUE OF OPERATING LOW POWER DIGITAL FACILITIES*. IN ORDER TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE THOSE LOW POWER DIGITAL FACILITIES UNTIL IT CONSTRUCTS FULL POWER DIGITAL FACILITIES PRIOR TO THE END OF DIGITAL TRANSITION, MONTECITO REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF THE CURRENT STA IN FILE NO. BEDSTA-20060104ADC. THAT EXTENSION WOULD SERVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST BY ENABLING KSNG-DT TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE DTV SERVICE TO GARDEN CITY, KANSAS.

MONTECITO CERTIFIES THAT (I) THE REQUESTED STA FACILITIES ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE FCCS RULES, INCLUDING THE COMMUNITY OF LICENSE COVERAGE REQUIREMENT AND THE FCCS POLICY ON RF RADIATION AND (II) THE PREDICTED SIGNAL COVERAGE OF THE REQUESTED FACILITY DOES NOT EXCEED THE PREDICTED SIGNAL CONTOUR IN THE DTV TABLE OF ALLOTMENTS.
