Description:
ANALOG TERMINATION

THIS NOTICE IS FILED IN ACCORDANCE WITH PARAGRAPH 133 OF THE FCC'S THIRD DTV PERIODIC REVIEW REPORT & ORDER ISSUED 12/31/2007, WHICH AUTHORIZED CESSATION OF ANALOG OPERATIONS WITHIN 90 DAYS OF THE 2/17/09 DIGITAL TRANSITION UPON 30 DAYS ADVANCE NOTICE TO THE FCC. WHNO IS ONE OF EIGHT LESEA FULL POWER TELEVISION STATIONS IN HAWAII, INDIANA, LOUISIANA, OKLAHOMA AND COLORADO TRANSITIONING TO DIGITAL-ONLY OPERATIONS. AN EARLY CESSATION OF ANALOG OPERATIONS IS NECESSARY TO (1) ELIMINATE TECHNICAL ISSUES THAT COULD IMPEDE DIGITAL-ONLY OPERATIONS, (2) ACCOMMODATE STAFF TECHNICAL CREW AVAILABILITY AND SCHEDULING, AND (3) REDUCE OPERATING EXPENSES TO ENSURE THE STATION'S CONTINUED ABILITY TO DELIVER DIGITAL SERVICE.
