Exhibits
Exhibit 20
Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES NECESSITATING STA

THE DIGITAL FLASH CUT CONSTRUCTION PERMIT APPLICATION FOR KTMJ-CA (FILE NO. BDFCDTA-20100831AAI) WAS PREPARED BASED ON TECHNICAL INFORMATION ON FILE FOR THE STATION'S ANALOG FACILITY, AS NO TECHNICAL CHANGES WERE CONTEMPLATED OTHER THAN THE TRANSITION FROM DIGITAL TO ANALOG MODE. UPON INSTALLATION OF THE DIGITAL ANTENNA, ENGINEERS DISCOVERED THAT THE ANTENNA LOCATION WAS AT A SLIGHTLY HIGHER POINT ON THE TOWER THAN SPECIFIED IN THE CONSTRUCTION PERMIT APPLICATION BASED ON INFORMATION ON FILE. CONCURRENTLY WITH THE FILING OF THIS REQUEST, KTMJ-CA IS FILING AN APPLICATION ON FCC FORM 301-CA TO MODIFY ITS FLASH CUT CONSTRUCTION PERMIT TO SPECIFY THE ACTUAL HEIGHT OF THE ANTENNA. KTMJ-CA RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE ITS DIGITAL FACILITY AT THE ACTUAL HEIGHT PENDING GRANT OF THE CONCURRENTLY-FILED MODIFICATION APPLICATION.
