WILLFUL FALSE STATEMENTS ON THIS FORM ARE PUNISHABLE BY FINE AND/OR IMPRISONMENT (U.S. CODE, TITLE 18, SECTION 1001), AND/OR REVOCATION OF ANY STATION LICENSE OR CONSTRUCTION PERMIT (U.S. CODE, TITLE 47, SECTION 312(a)(1)), AND/OR FORFEITURE (U.S. CODE, TITLE 47, SECTION 503).

Exhibit 20
Description:
JUSTIFICATION FOR STA

THIS IS A REQUEST FOR DIGITAL STA FACILITIES. CDBS WILL ACCEPT ONLY AN ANALOG FORM BECAUSE THE FACILITY ID IS CURRENTLY ASSOCIATED WITH AN ANALOG LICENSE.

THE REQUESTED EMISSION MASK IS FULL-SERVICE.

KORK-CA, FACILITY ID 71079, IS CURRENTLY LICENSED ON ANALOG CHANNEL 35. IT HOLDS A GRANTED DIGITAL FLASH CUT CONSTRUCTION PERMIT, BDFCDTA-20120221ADL, TRANTED 03/02/2012.

THIS IS A REQUEST FOR DIGITAL STA FACILITIES. CDBS WILL ACCEPT ONLY AN ANALOG FORM BECAUSE THE FACILITY ID IS CURRENTLY ASSOCIATED WITH AN ANALOG LICENSE. THE REQUESTED EMISSION MASK IS FULL-SERVICE
KORK-CA, FACILITY ID 71079, IS CURRENTLY LICENSED ON ANALOG CHANNEL 35. IT HOLDS A GRANTED DIGITAL FLASH CUT CONSTRUCTION PERMIT, BDFCDTA-20120221ADL, TRANTED 03/02/2012.

THIS APPLICATION REQUESTS AUTHORITY TO OPERATE ON THE SAME DIGITAL CHANNEL AS THE GRANTED CONSTRUCTION PERMIT, BUT AT A TEMPORARY LOCATION. THIS TEMPORARY LOCATION WILL PERMIT THE STATION TO BEGIN OPERATING AS A DIGITAL FACILITY AT REDUCED COST UNTIL IT LEARNS MORE ABOUT THE LIKELY OUTCOME OF THE UPCOMING PLAN TO REPACK THE TV SPECTRUM AND WHETHER KORK-CA WILL BE REQUIRED TO CHANGE TO A DIFFERENT CHANNEL OR THE LICENSEE WILL OFFER TO RELINQUISH THE LICENSE IN THE REVERSE INCENTIVE AUCTION.

THE ATTACHED MAP SHOWS THAT THE 51 DBU CONTOUR UNDER THE STA WILL SUBSTANTIALLY OVERLAP THE BOUNDARIES OF BOTH THE 51 DBU CONTOUR UNDER THE GRANTED CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AND THE 74 DBU CONTOUR OF THE LICENSED ANALOG FACILITY.

THE ANALOG FACILITY IS CURRENTLY DARK, BUT THE STATION IS OPERATING ON ITS COMPANION DIGITAL CHANNEL, DKORK-LD, FACILITY ID 167794, CHANNEL 41, UNDER BLSTA-20120316ABX, EXTENDED BY BELSTA-20120912ABG. WHEN OPERATION OF KORK-CA BEGINS UNDER THE STA REQUESTED HEREIN, OPERATION OF DKORK-LD WILL CEASE, AND THE LICENSEE UNDERSTANDS THAT THE COMPANION CHANNEL LICENSE WILL BE PERMANENTLY DELETED.
