Exhibits
Exhibit 36
Description:
REQUEST FOR EXTENSION OF STA

THE LICENSEE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF STA AT THE SAME PARAMETERS GRANTED IN FCC FILE NO. BDSTA-20100107AED FOR AN ADDITIONAL 180-DAY PERIOD. THE LICENSEE RESUBMITS THE ENGINEERING STATEMENT ACCOMPANYING ITS ORIGINAL REQUEST FOR STA. OPERATION AT THE PARAMETERS AUTHORIZED IN BDSTA-20100107AED HAS IMPROVED VHF RECEPTION IN WGEM(TV)'S VIEWING AREA TO SOME EXTENT. IN AN EFFORT TO FURTHER IMPROVE RECEPTION, THE LICENSEE RECENTLY PERFORMED ADDITIONAL MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR ON ITS TOP MOUNTED ANTENNA AND INTENDS TO CONDUCT FIELD STRENGTH MEASUREMENTS TO TEST THE FACILITY'S PERFORMANCE FOLLOWING SUCH MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR. THE LICENSEE ANTICIPATES THAT THE FIELD STRENGTH MEASUREMENTS WILL BE COMPLETED WITHIN 180 DAYS.
