Exhibit 21
Description:
EXHIBIT 21

STATION KAUZ-TV REQUESTS AN STA TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE WITH REDUCED FACILITIES FOR APPROXIMATELY 6 MONTHS AFTER THE DTV TRANSITION. SPECIFICALLY, KAUZ-TV PROPOSES TO OPERATE WITH ITS CURRENT DIGITAL STA FACILITIES. THE CURRENT DIGITAL STA FACILITIES ARE FOR OPERATION ON CHANNEL 22 WITH A NON-DIRECTIONAL ERP OF 47.1 KILOWATTS AND AN ANTENNA RADIATION CENTER HEIGHT ABOVE AVERAGE TERRAIN (HAAT) OF 293 METERS. A POST TRANSITION OET-69 INTERFERENCE ANALYSIS WAS CONDUCTED AND IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE PROPOSED STA OPERATION COMPLIES WITH THE FCC'S POST TRANSITION INTERFERENCE CRITERIA.

FIGURE 1 IS A MAP SHOWING THE FCC PREDICTED NOISE LIMITED (41 DBU) AND CITY GRADE (48 DBU) CONTOURS FOR THE PROPOSED STA OPERATION. AS SHOWN, THE CITY GRADE CONTOUR ENCOMPASSES THE ENTIRE CITY LIMITS OF WITCHITA FALLS IN COMPLIANCE WITH SECTION 73.625.

THE KAUZ-TV FACILITIES WERE EVALUATED IN TERMS OF POTENTIAL RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION EXPOSURE AT 2 METERS ABOVE GROUND LEVEL IN ACCORDANCE WITH OET BULLETIN NO. 65, EVALUATING COMPLIANCE WITH FCC SPECIFIED GUIDELINES FOR HUMAN EXPOSURE TO RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION. THIS BULLETIN PROVIDES ASSISTANCE IN DETERMINING WHETHER FCC-REGULATED TRANSMITTING FACILITIES, OPERATIONS OR DEVICES COMPLY WITH LIMITS FOR HUMAN EXPOSURE TO RADIOFREQUENCY (RF) ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS ADOPTED BY THE COMMISSION IN 1996.

THE CALCULATED POWER DENSITY AT 2 METERS ABOVE GROUND LEVEL AT THE BASE OF THE TOWER WAS CALCULATED USING THE APPROPRIATE EQUATION CONTAINED IN THE BULLETIN. PRESUMING A CONSERVATIVE VERTICAL RELATIVE FIELD VALUE OF 0.3 FOR DEPRESSION ANGLES TOWARDS THE TOWER BASE (-60 TO -90), A MAXIMUM ERP OF 47.1 KILOWATTS, AND AN ANTENNA CENTER OF RADIATION HEIGHT ABOVE GROUND LEVEL OF 285 METERS, THE CALCULATED POWER DENSITY AT TWO METERS ABOVE GROUND LEVEL AT THE BASE OF THE TOWER IS 0.0018 MILLIWATT PER SQUARE CENTIMETER (MW/CM2), OR 0.51 PERCENT OF THE COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDED LIMIT APPLICABLE TO GENERAL POPULATION/UNCONTROLLED EXPOSURE AREAS (0.35 MW/CM2 FOR TV CHANNEL 22). THEREFORE, THE FACILITY COMPLIES WITH THE FCC'S RF EMISSION RULES.

ACCESS TO THE TRANSMITTING SITE WILL BE RESTRICTED AND APPROPRIATELY MARKED WITH WARNING SIGNS. FURTHERMORE, AN AGREEMENT WILL BE IN EFFECT TO CONTROL ACCESS TO THE SITE. IN THE EVENT THAT WORKERS OR OTHER AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ENTER THE RESTRICTED AREA APPROPRIATE MEASURES SHALL BE TAKEN TO LIMIT RF ENERGY EXPOSURE. SUCH MEASURES INCLUDE LIMITING THE EXPOSURE TIME, WEARING PROTECTIVE CLOTHING, REDUCING POWER TO AN ACCEPTABLE LEVEL OR TERMINATION OF TRANSMITTER OUTPUT POWER ALL TOGETHER UNTIL WORKERS LEAVE THE RESTRICTED AREA.

IT IS NOTED THAT THIS STATEMENT ONLY ADDRESSES THE POTENTIAL FOR RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD EXPOSURE. ALL OTHER ASPECTS OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROCESSING ANALYSIS WILL BE OR ALREADY HAVE BEEN PROVIDED TO THE FCC BY THE TOWER OWNER AS PART OF THE TOWER REGISTRATION PROCESS.
