Exhibits
Exhibit 38
Description:
REQUEST FOR STA

PURSUANT TO THIRD PERIODIC DTV REVIEW REPORT AND ORDER, 23 FCC RCD 2994 (2007), THE LICENSEE REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY ('STA') TO OPERATE ITS POST-TRANSITION DIGITAL FACILITIES AT REDUCED POWER. ADDITIONALLY, AND TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY, THE LICENSEE ALSO SEEKS AN EXTENSION OF THE STATION'S DTV CONSTRUCTION PERMIT DEADLINE, WHICH IS SLATED TO EXPIRE ON FEBRUARY 17, 2009.

AS THE COMMISSION IS AWARE, THE LICENSEE FIRST ANTICIPATED TEMPORARILY REDUCING ITS PRE-TRANSITION DIGITAL POWER IN EARLY DECEMBER IN ORDER TO MODIFY AND ADJUST THE TRANSMITTER IN PREPARATION FOR THE DTV TRANSITION DEADLINE. THOSE ADJUSTMENTS AND MODIFICATIONS WERE DELAYED DUE TO INSTALLATION AND TOWER CREW ISSUES. THE LICENSEE AIRED THE REQUISITE VIEWER NOTIFICATION FOR BOTH EVENTS. SEE FCC FILE NOS. BLDSTA-20081110AMN AND BLDSTA-20081212ACO. THE MODIFICATION AND ADJUSTMENT PROCESS CANNOT BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO THE FEBRUARY 17, 2009 DEADLINE. THEREFORE, THE LICENSEE SEEKS ADDITIONAL TIME TO COMPLETE SUCH MODIFICATIONS AND ADJUSTMENTS. THE LICENSEE ANTICIPATES COMPLETING SUCH MODIFICATIONS AND ADJUSTMENTS BY OR BEFORE APRIL 3, 2009. ACCORDINGLY, THE LICENSEE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS STA TO CONTINUE REDUCED POWER DIGITAL OPERATIONS BEYOND THE DTV TRANSITION DEADLINE AND AN EXTENSION OF ITS DTV CONSTRUCTION PERMIT DEADLINE.
