Exhibit 2
Description:
FURTHER NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED

SATV10, LLC NEEDS FCC ACTION ON ITS PENDING MODIFICATION APPLICATION FOR ITS DTV FACILITIES, WHICH REQUESTS AUTHORITY TO RELOCATE THE TOWER SITE FOR KTRG. SATV10 REQUIRES FAA APPROVAL. SATV10 IS ALSO IN BANKRUPTCY, AND AS SUCH HAS BEEN UNABLE TO OBTAIN THE FINANCING NEEDED TO COMPLETE CONSTRUCTION AS PROPOSED.

Attachment 2


Exhibit 3
Description:
STATUS OF ANALOG SERVICE

SATV10, LLC TERMINATED ANALOG SERVICE FOR KTRG ON JUNE 12, 2009 IN ACCORDANCE WITH FCC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES. SECTION II ITEM 1(A) REFERENCES ANALOG CHANNEL 10, WHICH WAS KTRG'S ANALOG ASSIGNMENT PRIOR TO CESSATION OF ANALOG SERVICE. AT SECTION V OF THE FORM, ITEM 1 IS CHECKED BECAUSE ANALOG SERVICE WAS NOT TERMINATED PRIOR TO THE JUNE 12, 2009 DIGITAL TRANSITION DEADLINE.    

Attachment 3


Exhibit 4
Description:
DTV TRANSITION TIMELINE

EFFECTIVE JUNE 12, 2009, SATV10, LLC ('SATV10') HAS TERMINATED ANALOG OPERATIONS AND HAS TRANSITIONED TO DIGITAL-ONLY OPERATIONS.

THE LICENSEE FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY ON JANUARY 30, 2009 AND IS WORKING TOWARD DEVELOPING PLANS TO EXIT BANKRUPTCY.

SATV10 HAS NOT YET COMPLETED CONSTRUCTION OF ITS POST-TRANSITION DIGITAL FACILITIES ON CHANNEL 28 (FCC FILE NO. BPCDT19991101AEN). SATV10 HAS OBTAINED SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE A PHASED TRANSITION DTV FACILITY ON ITS POST-TRANSITION CHANNEL; THIS AUTHORITY, AS EXTENDED, EXPIRES ON FEBRUARY 17, 2010. SEE THIRD REPORT AND ORDER ON RECONSIDERATION, FCC 09-19 (REL. MARCH 13, 2009.)

SATV10 ACQUIRED STATION KTRG OUT OF BANKRUPTCY AND THE STATION HAS RECENTLY REENTERED BANKRUPTCY. DESPITE THE CHALLENGING ECONOMIC MARKETPLACE FOR SMALL MARKET STATIONS, SATV10 HAS WORKED DILIGENTLY TO REDESIGN THE STATION'S DIGITAL FACILITIES TO ENHANCE SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY IN ORDER TO MAKE THE STATION VIABLE. SATV10'S CONSTRUCTION PLANS HAVE THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS:

1) PHASED TRANSITION - SATV10 OPERATES PURSUANT TO SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY (FCC FILE NO. BDSTA-20080818ACA, AS EXTENDED BY FCC FILE NO. BEDSTA-20091009ACP) AT REDUCED FACILITIES FROM THE CURRENT TRANSMISSION SITE. THE STA IS SET TO EXPIRE ON FEBRUARY 17, 2010.

2) MODIFICATION OF CONSTRUCTION PERMIT - SATV10 HAS FILED AN APPLICATION TO MODIFY ITS CURRENT CONSTRUCTION PERMIT (AND APPENDIX B FACILITY) (FCC FILE NO. BMPCDT-20080618ACC). THE APPLICATION REMAINS PENDING BEFORE THE COMMISSION AND REQUIRES FAA APPROVAL. OPERATION OF THIS MODIFIED FACILITY IS CRITICAL TO THE VIABILITY OF THE STATION AND A MINOR MODIFICATION OF THE SITE MAY BE NECESSARY IN ORDER TO SECURE RIGHTS TO THE LAND.

SATV10 EXPECTS THAT ITS PROPOSED MODIFICATIONS TO ITS DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION PERMIT WILL REQUIRE FAA APPROVAL, BUT IT UNDERSTANDS THAT INTERNATIONAL COORDINATION DUE TO THE STATION'S PROXIMITY TO MEXICO HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY OBTAINED.
