Exhibits
Exhibit 21
Description:
REQUEST FOR STA

THE APPLICANT PROPOSED THE FACILITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN ON ITS INITIAL APPLICATION FOR CONSTRUCTION PERMIT, BPCDT-0080402ADA. THE COMMISSION WAS NOT ABLE TO GRANT THAT APPLICATION RAPIDLY DUE TO LACK OF MEXICAN CONCURRENCE. IT WAS THE APPLICANTS INTENTION TO INITIALLY CONSTRUCT THE FACILITIES DESCRIBED THEREIN FOR INITIAL POST-TRANSITION OPERATION, AS THE ANTENNA SPECIFIED COULD BE INSTALLED ON THE STATIONS TOWER BEFORE THE TERMINATION OF ANALOG SERVICE. CONSTRUCTION OF THE FACILITIES DESCRIBED HAS BEEN COMPLETED.

IN JUNE 2008, THE INITIAL APPLICATION WAS AMENDED TO SPECIFY MAXIMIZED FACILITIES, BUT IT REMAINS PENDING DUE TO ONGOING NEGOTIATIONS WITH MEXICO. THE ANTENNA SPECIFIED IN THE MAXIMIZATION AMENDMENT WAS ALSO SPECIFIED IN A RECENTLY-GRANTED APPLICATION, BPCDT-20081209ADQ, FILED IN RESPONSE TO AN INTERIM COORDINATION WITH MEXICO, AND WILL BE INSTALLED IN PLACE OF THE STATIONS EXISTING ANALOG ANTENNA, FOLLOWING THE END OF THE TRANSITION. IT IS PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO INSTALL THAT LARGER ANTENNA AT THIS TIME AND COMMENCE POST-TRANSITION OPERATION WITH THE FACILITIES SPECIFIED IN THE RECENTLY GRANTED APPLICATION.
