Exhibits
Exhibit 38
Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES WARRANTING STA

KNIN-TV HAS BEEN OPERATING AT 74% OF ITS AUTHORIZED POWER SINCE JANUARY 9, 2008 AS A RESULT OF ICE ON ITS ANTENNA AND RESULTING HIGH REFLECTED VERTICAL STANDING WAVE RATIO. ALTHOUGH THE LICENSEE OF KNIN-TV HAD HOPED THAT WARMER TEMPERATURES WOULD CAUSE THE ICE TO MELT SO FULL POWER COULD BE RESTORED, A SERIES OF WINTER STORMS COUPLED WITH COLD TEMPERATURES HAVE RESULTED IN A FAILURE OF THE ICE TO MELT TO DATE. LICENSEE ANTICIPATES THAT EVEN IF TEMPERATURES WERE TO REMAIN WELL BELOW NORMAL, THE ICE WILL MELT WITHIN THE COMING MONTH OR TWO. LICENSEE REQUESTS AN STA TO OPERATE AT REDUCED POWER FOR SIX MONTHS, PROVIDING AMPLE TIME FOR THE ICE ON ITS ANTENNA TO MELT AND FOR IT TO RESTORE ITS OPERATIONS TO FULL POWER.
