Exhibits
Exhibit 21
Description:
EXHIBIT 21---STA CIRCUMSTANCES

AS PREVIOUSLY REPORTED TO THE COMMISSION, ON JANUARY 27, 2010, WBAY-TV'S TRANSMISSION FACILITIES EXPERIENCED AN UNEXPECTED TRANSMISSION LINE FAILURE. AS A RESULT, WBAY-TV'S OPERATION IS CURRENTLY LIMITED TO 25 PERCENT ERP. THE 25 PERCENT ERP OPERATION IS THE SUBJECT OF A PREVIOUSLY-FILED REQUEST FOR SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY IN FILE NO. BLDSTA-20100203ABT.

THE STATION HAS BEEN DILIGENTLY WORKING TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE AND REPAIR THE DAMAGED LINE. AT THIS TIME, THE STATION HAS DETERMINED TO TO IMPLEMENT A TEMPORARY SOLUTION TO INCREASE POWER PENDING REPAIR TO WBAY-TV'S FULLY-AUTHORIZED FACILITY. EQUIPMENT FOR THE TEMPORARY OPERATION HAS BEEN ORDERED AND IS SCHEDULED TO ARRIVE DURING THE LAST WEEK OF APRIL 2010. THE STATION ANTICIPATES THAT INSTALLATION OF THE EQUIPMENT WILL TAKE ONE TO TWO WEEKS. AS SET FORTH IN THE ENGINEERING STATEMENT ATTACHED TO THIS REQUEST, STA IS BEING SOUGHT FOR A TEMPORARY SIDE-MOUNT ANTENNA AT 203 METERS HAAT AND AN ERP OF 52.1 KW.

THE OPERATING PARAMETERS FOR WHICH STA IS SOUGHT HEREIN REPRESENT BETTER COVERAGE AND SERVICE THAN THE CURRENT 25% OPERATION AND WILL ALLOW THE STATION TO REPAIR ITS TRANSMISSION LINE TO RESTORE FULL LICENSED OPERATION. FOR THESE REASONS, WBAY-TV HEREBY RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE WITH THE PARAMETERS SPECIFIED HEREIN WHILE THE TRANSMISSION LINE IS BEING REPAIRED.
