Exhibits
Exhibit 2
Description:
JUSTIFICATION FOR CONTINUED STA TO REMAIN SILENT

SATV10, LLC ('SATV10'), LICENSEE OF KTRG(TV), DEL RIO, TX, RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS PURSUANT TO SECTION 73.1740(A)(4), SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY ('STA') TO MAINTAIN DISCONTINUED OPERATION OF KTRG(TV).

GRANT OF STA IS IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST. EVENTS BEYOND SATV10'S CONTROL PROHIBIT THE STATION FROM OPERATING AT THE CURRENT TOWER SITE. ON APRIL 30, 2007, SATV10 AND THE STATION'S PRIOR LICENSEE CONSUMMATED THE ASSIGNMENT OF THE STATION TO SATV10. THE STATION WAS PURCHASED OUT OF BANKRUPTCY, AND THE ESTATE ASSETS DID NOT INCLUDE A TOWER SITE LEASE FOR KTRG'S AUTHORIZED LOCATION. ON MAY 10, 2007 KTRG REQUESTED STA TO DISCONTINUE OPERATIONS WHILE PURSUING A SUITABLE TRANSMITTER SITE.

DURING THE CURRENT STA TERM SATV10 HAS EXPENDED SIGNIFICANT TIME AND EXPENSE TO IDENTIFY A SUITABLE TRANSMITTER SITE TO PERMIT SATV10 TO DEVELOP ITS PLANS FOR DEPLOYING DIGITAL TELEVISION SERVICE. IN JULY, SATV10 RETAINED ADDITIONAL ENGINEERING ASSISTANCE TO ANALYZE ALTERNATIVE TOWER SITES IN AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE SERVICES. SATV10 ENGINEERS HAVE CONDUCTED NUMEROUS ENGINEERING STUDIES TO DESIGN NEW FACILITIES TO CONFORM WITH THE FCC RULES. NUMEROUS SITES HAVE BEEN EXPLORED FOR SUITABILITY, BUT AS OF NOW, NONE HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED THAT WOULD ALLOW KTRG TO MEET ITS SERVICE OBLIGATIONS TO DEL RIO AND THE AREA, AND THAT ALSO WOULD COMPLY WITH THE RESTRICTIONS GOVERNING FILING OF DTV MODIFICATIONS. SATV10 ANTICIPATES THAT IT CAN IDENTIFY A SUITABLE SITE IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE. ONCE A SUITABLE SITE IS IDENTIFIED, SATV10 INTENDS TO FILE THE APPROPRIATE FCC APPLICATION TO REQUEST AUTHORITY TO OPERATE FROM A DIFFERENT SITE. SATV10 HOPES TO OBTAIN PROMPT GRANT OF ITS APPLICATION FOR MODIFIED FACILITIES AND EXPECTS THAT IT WOULD BE ABLE TO EXPEDITIOUSLY COMPLETE CONSTRUCTION OF THESE FACILITIES. IN THE ALTERNATIVE, SATV10 IS ALSO HOPING TO FINALIZE NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE CURRENTLY AUTHORIZED SITE OWNER. IN THE MEANTIME, KTRG REQUESTS AUTHORITY TO REMAIN SILENT.
