Exhibits
Exhibit 40
Description:
EXHIBIT 40 - INTRO PARA. TO EXHIBIT 40 IS DELETED AND REPLACED AS FOLLOWS:

CHANNEL 12 OF BEAUMONT, INC. (CHANNEL 12) INITIALLY WAS GRANTED A CONSTRUCTION PERMIT (CONSISTENT WITH FACILITIES SPECIFIED IN APPENDIX B) ON APRIL 16, 2008 (BPCDT-20080317ABX). AN APPLICATION FOR MODIFICATION OF THE OUTSTANDING CONSTRUCTION (MAXIMIZED APPLICATION) WAS INITIALLY GRANTED NOVEMBER 12, 2008 WITH A CONDITION AND SUBSEQUENTLY RE-ISSUED ON DECEMBER 19, 2008 WITHOUT A CONDITION.1/   THE INSTANT STA PROPOSES INTERIM OPERATION WHICH WOULD EXTEND THE NOISE LIMITED CONTOUR BEYOND THE CONTOUR SPECIFIED IN THE INITIAL APPENDIX B CONSTRUCTION PERMIT BUT WHOLLY WITHIN THE CONTOUR SPECIFIED IN THE MAXIMIZED CONSTRUCTION PERMIT. IN LIGHT OF THE FACT THAT THE PROPOSED STA INTERIM OPERATION WILL PROVIDE GREATER COVERAGE THAN THE APPENDIX B CONSTRUCTION PERMIT (BUT IS WHOLLY CONTAINED WITHIN THE CONTOUR OF THE MAXIMIZED CONSTRUCTION PERMIT), SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY IS HEREWITH REQUESTED. A NEW CHANNEL 12 DIGITAL TRANSMITTER HAS BEEN DELIVERED.2/

AN ENGINEERING STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF THE STA IS ATTACHED. ACCORDINGLY, IT IS RESPECTFULLY REQUESTED THAT THE COMMISSION AUTHORIZE SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY AS OF JUNE 13, 2009.3/

THE ATTACHED ENGINEERING STATEMENT PROVIDES DETAILS AND PURPOSE FOR THE PROPOSED STA.

1/ THE INITIAL GRANT INVOLVED SEVERAL MUTUALLY-EXCLUSIVE APPLICATIONS AND WAS SUBJECT TO RESCISSION/DISMISSAL IF THE PARTIES WERE UNABLE TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEM. THE PARTIES ENTERED INTO A MUTUAL INTERFERENCE ACCEPTANCE AGREEMENT, WHICH WAS THE BASIS FOR THE RE-ISSUANCE WITHOUT A CONDITION.

2/ KBMT WILL NOT TERMINATE CHANNEL 12 ANALOG OPERATION UNTIL JUNE 12, 2009. WHILE THE NEW DIGITAL CHANNEL 12 TRANSMITTER CAN BE USED FOR EITHER THE APPENDIX B FACILITY OR THE PROPOSED INTERIM STA FACILITY, A TIMELY GRANT OF THE PROPOSED INTERIM STA WILL ALLOW COMMENCEMENT OF EXPANDED CHANNEL 12 DIGITAL OPERATION.

3/ TESTING OF THE NEW DIGITAL CHANNEL 12 TRANSMITTER IS IN PROGRESS. A LICENSE APPLICATION COVERING THE APPENDIX B CONSTRUCTION PERMIT WILL BE TIMELY FILED.
