Exhibits
Exhibit 40
Description:
REDUCE ANALOG POWER TO FACILITATE DTV CONVERSION

APPLICANT SEEKS RELEIF FROM PART 73.1560(C) AND (D).

KDRV'S ANALOG TRANSMITTER NEEDS TO BE RECONFIGURED AND TESTED FOR DTV SERVICE. THIS CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED BY REMOVING 2 OF 3 PA CABINETS THEREBY REDUCING ANALOG POWER TO 1/3 AUTHORIZED (63.5 KW). POWER WOULD REMAIN AT 1/3 AUTHORIZED UNTIL TERMINATION OF ANALOG SERVICE ON FEB 17TH, 2009.

WORK NEEDS TO START LATE SUMMER AND CONTINUE THROUGH EARLY FALL IN ORDER TO BEAT BAD WEATHER AT THE MILE HIGH SITE. PROPSED DATE OF REDUCED ANALOG POWER
IS AUGUST 1 2008.

THE PREDICTED POPULATION SERVED BY THE 56 DBUV/M FIELD STRENGTH CONTOUR WOULD BE REDUCED 9.1% FROM 261,652 TO 237,986.
