Exhibit 52
Description:
PRINCIPAL COMMUNITY COVERAGE

[EXTRACT FROM TECHNICAL STATEMENT & COMPLETE SPECIFICATIONS ATTACHED AT EXHIBIT 51.]

AS REQUIRED BY 73.625(A)(1) OF THE FCC RULES, THE TRANSMITTER LOCATION MUST BE CHOSEN SO AS TO PUT A MINIMUM F(50,90) FIELD STRENGTH OF 48 DBU OVER THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY TO BE SERVED. 73.625(A)(2) FURTHER REQUIRES THAT THE LOCATION OF THE ANTENNA MUST BE SO CHOSEN THAT THERE IS NOT A MAJOR OBSTRUCTION IN THE PATH OVER THE PRINCIPAL COMMUNITY TO BE SERVED. MOREOVER, 73.626(F)(4) REQUIRES THAT THE COVERAGE FROM ONE OR MORE DTS TRANSMITTERS BE SHOWN TO PROVIDE PRINCIPAL COMMUNITY COVERAGE AS REQUIRED BY 73.625(A). AS DEMONSTRATED BY THE 48 DBU CONTOUR OF THE SNOW PEAK TRANSMITTER, SHOWN IN BLUE ON THE COVERAGE MAP OF FIGURE 2, THE TRANSMITTER LOCATION CHOSEN, COMBINED WITH THE OTHER CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TRANSMISSION SYSTEM, INDEED DOES DELIVER AT LEAST THE MINIMUM REQUIRED FIELD STRENGTH OVER THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY TO BE SERVED TWENTYNINE PALMS, CA. THUS, THE REQUIREMENTS OF 73.626(F)(4) ARE MET BY A SINGLE TRANSMITTER.

BECAUSE OF TERRAIN WITHIN THE CITY OF TWENTYNINE PALMS, HOWEVER, THERE REMAIN OBSTRUCTIONS IN THE PATH OVER A PORTION OF THE CITY. THOSE OBSTRUCTIONS ARE THE FOOTHILLS AND EXTENSIONS OF THE MOUNTAINS THAT SURROUND TWENTYNINE PALMS AND WOULD IMPINGE UPON THE PROPAGATION PATHS TO ONE PART OF THE CITY OR ANOTHER OF SIGNALS FROM ANY TRANSMISSION SITE THAT MIGHT BE SELECTED. THE OBSTRUCTIONS WERE IN EXISTENCE AT THE TIME THE DIGITAL CONSTRUCTION PERMIT WAS GRANTED AND HAVE REMAINED IN EXISTENCE THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD OF KVMD OPERATION FROM SNOW PEAK.

[EXTRACT FROM TECHNICAL STATEMENT AND COMPLETE SPECIFICATIONS ATTACHED AT EXHIBIT 51.]

AS NOTED IN THE SECTION ABOVE ON FACILITIES, IT IS PROPOSED TO ROTATE THE EXISTING ANTENNA AT DTS SITE 1 (SNOW PEAK) FROM AN AXIS OF SYMMETRY HEADING OF 100 DEGREES TO ONE OF 180 DEGREES. THIS WILL MAINTAIN THE SERVICE CONTOUR IN ITS CURRENT LOCATION AT BEARINGS FROM ROUGHLY 90 THROUGH 200 DEGREES, WITH AN INCREASED CONTOUR DISTANCE AT BEARINGS FROM 200 THROUGH 320 DEGREES, AND WITH A DECREASED CONTOUR DISTANCE OVER THE RANGE FROM 320 THROUGH 90 DEGREES. THE REGION WITH DECREASED CONTOUR DISTANCE WILL PRODUCE TWO LOSS AREAS, APPROXIMATELY NORTH AND NORTHEAST, RESPECTIVELY, FROM THE SNOW PEAK SITE. THE REGION TO THE NORTH IS ON THE FAR SIDE OF THE SAN GABRIEL MOUNTAIN RANGE, AND, WHILE THERE ARE 3,153 PEOPLE WITHIN THAT REGION, ACCORDING TO THE 2000 CENSUS, OWING TO THE TERRAIN, NONE OF THEM WERE PREDICTED TO RECEIVE A SIGNAL LEVEL FROM KVMD ABOVE THE NOISE-LIMITED THRESHOLD, AS DETERMINED USING THE LONGLEY-RICE TERRAIN-DEPENDENT PROPAGATION MODEL. CONSIDERING ITS CONTOUR, THE DTS SITE 3 TRANSMITTER WILL RECOVER ALMOST THREE-FOURTHS OF THAT LOSS AREA AND OVER 97 PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE IN THAT AREA; MOREOVER, IT IS PREDICTED, USING THE LONGLEY-RICE METHOD, TO DELIVER NEW SERVICE FROM KVMD TO 1,588 PEOPLE IN THAT AREA WHO DID NOT RECEIVE SUCH SERVICE PREVIOUSLY AND FOR WHOM THIS WILL BE THEIR SECOND SERVICE. THE REGION TO THE NORTHEAST OF SNOW PEAK IS SITUATED IN A DESERT AREA, MUCH OF WHICH IS PART OF A MILITARY TRAINING BASE AND ALL OF WHICH IS DEVOID OF ANY PEOPLE LIVING THERE. THUS, THE LOSS AREAS ARE IN PLACES WHERE THEY WILL HAVE ZERO IMPACT ON THE DELIVERY OF SERVICE TO ANYONE AT THIS TIME OR IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

REFERENCE POINT RELOCATION & SERVICE AREAS

[EXTRACT FROM TECHNICAL STATEMENT & COMPLETE SPECIFICATIONS ATTACHED TO THIS EXHIBIT 51.]

THE TABLE OF DISTANCES CIRCLE, OR THE ALTERNATIVE LARGEST STATION CIRCLE, IS DETERMINED BASED ON A RADIUS FROM THE REFERENCE POINT FOR THE STATION PROPOSING DTS OPERATION. THE DEFAULT REFERENCE POINT FOR A DTS OPERATION IS THE REFERENCE POINT ESTABLISHED IN THE FCC ORDER THAT CREATED OR MADE FINAL MODIFICATIONS TO THE POST-TRANSITION DTV TABLE OF ALLOTMENTS, 73.622(I), AND THE CORRESPONDING FACILITIES FOR THE STATIONS CHANNEL ASSIGNMENT AS SET FORTH IN THAT FCC ORDER.   THE DTS R&O MAKES SPECIFIC PROVISION FOR THE RELOCATION OF THE REFERENCE POINT FOR A STATION SO LONG AS CERTAIN CONDITIONS ARE MET.   THE DEFAULT REFERENCE POINT FOR THE KVMD DTS NETWORK (34-2-17N, 116-48-47W) IS THE LOCATION OF THE SITE 1 TRANSMITTER AT SNOW PEAK, WHICH IS THE REFERENCE POINT ESTABLISHED IN THE DTV TABLE OF ALLOTMENTS FOR KVMD.

THE REFERENCE POINT PROPOSED IN THIS APPLICATION (33-58-0N, 116-55-40W) IS SITUATED APPROXIMATELY 13.2 KM SOUTHWEST OF THE SITE 1 TRANSMITTER AND DEFAULT REFERENCE POINT. WHILE THE PROPOSED CHANGE IN REFERENCE POINT DOES RESULT IN A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN THE POPULATION CONTAINED WITHIN THE LARGEST STATION CIRCLE (FROM A POPULATION OF 12,480,883 WITHIN THE CIRCLE CENTERED ON THE DEFAULT REFERENCE POINT TO A POPULATION OF 15,193,859 WITHIN THE CIRCLE OF THE CURRENT REFERENCE POINT PROPOSAL AN INCREASE OF 2,712,976), THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE IS TO AVOID AN EXTENSION OF THE CONTOUR (ON THE ORDER OF 10.6 KM MAXIMUM) FROM DTS SITE 2 OUTSIDE THE CONFINES OF THE CIRCLE, IN AREAS WHERE THE BACK LOBES OF THE ANTENNA PATTERN SIMPLY CANNOT BE CONTROLLED ANY BETTER THAN PROPOSED IN THIS APPLICATION. THERE WOULD BE A SIMILAR EXTENSION OF THE CONTOUR (ON THE ORDER OF 3.2 KM MAXIMUM) FROM DTS SITE 3 USING THE DEFAULT REFERENCE POINT, WHICH IS ELIMINATED WITH THE PROPOSED REFERENCE POINT.

THE REQUEST FOR A CHANGED REFERENCE POINT IS SUPPORTED BY THE FACT THAT THE CONTOUR EXTENSION TO THE WEST, EVIDENT BEYOND THE DEFAULT LARGEST STATION CIRCLE, HAS A MAXIMUM POWER IN THAT DIRECTION (IN THE RANGE OF 273 TO 279 DEGREES FROM THE LA HABRA HEIGHTS SITE) OF ONLY ABOUT 137 WATTS (AT 279 DEGREES AZIMUTH AND 1.7 DEGREES DEPRESSION) AND, IN ANY EVENT, THE SIGNAL THERE IS PREDICTED NOT TO BE RECEIVABLE DUE TO ADJACENT-CHANNEL INTERFERENCE FROM A 1 MW ERP TRANSMITTER (OF KBEH) ON DIGITAL CHANNEL 24 AT THE MT. WILSON/MT. HARVARD ANTENNA FARM. AT THE SAME TIME, THE LARGEST STATION CIRCLE PRODUCED FROM THE RELOCATED REFERENCE POINT FULLY ENCOMPASSES THE CONTOUR AUTHORIZED TO KVMD IN ITS LICENSE IN FILE NO. BLCDT-20060615AAB, AS REQUIRED FOR CHANGES IN REFERENCE POINTS BY THE DTS R&O: SUCH CHANGES IN REFERENCE POINTS ARE SUBJECT TO A STATION SHOWING THAT THE RESULTING SERVICE AREA CIRCLE FULLY ENCOMPASSES THE STATIONS AUTHORIZED SERVICE AREA.   THIS CAN BE SEEN IN FIGURE 2, WHERE THE LARGEST STATION CIRCLE CENTERED ON THE RELOCATED REFERENCE POINT IS SHOWN IN BLACK AND THE CONTOUR ENCOMPASSING THE SERVICE AREA AUTHORIZED BY THE CURRENT KVMD LICENSE IS SHOWN IN RED.

AS NOTED IN THE SECTION ABOVE ON FACILITIES, IT IS PROPOSED TO ROTATE THE EXISTING ANTENNA AT DTS SITE 1 (SNOW PEAK) FROM AN AXIS OF SYMMETRY HEADING OF 100 DEGREES TO ONE OF 180 DEGREES. THIS WILL MAINTAIN THE SERVICE CONTOUR IN ITS CURRENT LOCATION AT BEARINGS FROM ROUGHLY 90 THROUGH 200 DEGREES, WITH AN INCREASED CONTOUR DISTANCE AT BEARINGS FROM 200 THROUGH 320 DEGREES, AND WITH A DECREASED CONTOUR DISTANCE OVER THE RANGE FROM 320 THROUGH 90 DEGREES. THE REGION WITH DECREASED CONTOUR DISTANCE WILL PRODUCE TWO LOSS AREAS, APPROXIMATELY NORTH AND NORTHEAST, RESPECTIVELY, FROM THE SNOW PEAK SITE. THE REGION TO THE NORTH IS ON THE FAR SIDE OF THE SAN GABRIEL MOUNTAIN RANGE, AND, WHILE THERE ARE 3,153 PEOPLE WITHIN THAT REGION, ACCORDING TO THE 2000 CENSUS, OWING TO THE TERRAIN, NONE OF THEM WERE PREDICTED TO RECEIVE A SIGNAL LEVEL FROM KVMD ABOVE THE NOISE-LIMITED THRESHOLD, AS DETERMINED USING THE LONGLEY-RICE TERRAIN-DEPENDENT PROPAGATION MODEL. CONSIDERING ITS CONTOUR, THE DTS SITE 3 TRANSMITTER WILL RECOVER ALMOST THREE-FOURTHS OF THAT LOSS AREA AND OVER 97 PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE IN THAT AREA; MOREOVER, IT IS PREDICTED, USING THE LONGLEY-RICE METHOD, TO DELIVER NEW SERVICE FROM KVMD TO 1,588 PEOPLE IN THAT AREA WHO DID NOT RECEIVE SUCH SERVICE PREVIOUSLY AND FOR WHOM THIS WILL BE THEIR SECOND SERVICE. THE REGION TO THE NORTHEAST OF SNOW PEAK IS SITUATED IN A DESERT AREA, MUCH OF WHICH IS PART OF A MILITARY TRAINING BASE AND ALL OF WHICH IS DEVOID OF ANY PEOPLE LIVING THERE. THUS, THE LOSS AREAS ARE IN PLACES WHERE THEY WILL HAVE ZERO IMPACT ON THE DELIVERY OF SERVICE TO ANYONE AT THIS TIME OR IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

AS FURTHER CAN BE SEEN IN FIGURE 2, THERE IS ONE LARGE AREA WHERE THE CONTOUR OF THE DTS SITE 2 TRANSMITTER EXTENDS BEYOND THE AREA OF THE RELOCATED LARGEST STATION CIRCLE BY A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT. THAT AREA IS OVER THE PACIFIC OCEAN, WITH NO POPULATION, AND IT SHOULD NOT BE TREATED AS AN EXTENSION OF THE SERVICE AREA OF THE SITE 2 GAP FILLER TRANSMITTER. MORE IMPORTANTLY, THAT EXTENSION AREA ENABLES THE PROVISION OF SERVICE WITHIN THE CURRENTLY AUTHORIZED, SINGLE-TRANSMITTER SERVICE AREA OF KVMD AND WITHIN THE SERVICE AREA THAT WOULD RESULT IF KVMD WERE TO APPLY SEPARATELY FOR THE ROTATION OF ITS EXISTING SNOW PEAK ANTENNA, AS JUST DESCRIBED.

THE DTS SITE 3 TRANSMITTER IS LOCATED TO DELIVER SERVICE TO A LARGE, UNDERSERVED POPULATION ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE SAN GABRIEL MOUNTAINS. DESPITE THE FACT THAT MANY LOS ANGELES MARKET STATIONS HAVE CONTOURS THAT EXTEND OVER THE AREA, FEW OF THEM PROVIDE MUCH VIEWABLE SERVICE THERE BECAUSE OF THE INTERVENING SAN GABRIEL MOUNTAIN RANGE. AS DETERMINED USING THE LONGLEY-RICE TERRAIN-DEPENDENT MODEL AND DATA FROM THE 2000 CENSUS, THERE WILL BE 48,840 PEOPLE WHO WILL RECEIVE A NEW SECOND SERVICE, 77,439 WHO WILL RECEIVE A NEW THIRD SERVICE, 202,841 WHO WILL RECEIVE A NEW FOURTH SERVICE, AND 248,352 WHO WILL RECEIVE A NEW FIFTH SERVICE FROM THE PROPOSED DTS SITE 3 FACILITY. WITHOUT THE REFERENCE POINT REPOSITIONING, MANY FEWER UNDERSERVED PEOPLE WOULD BE PROVIDED NEW SERVICE WHILE KEEPING THE CONTOUR WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE DEFAULT LARGEST STATION CIRCLE.

IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT THE RELOCATED REFERENCE POINT PROPOSED FOR THE LARGEST STATION CIRCLE ENCOMPASSES ALMOST 2,713,000 ADDITIONAL PEOPLE WHILE ALSO COMPLETELY ENCOMPASSING THE AUTHORIZED FACILITY ON WHICH THE DTS NETWORK IS BASED, AS REQUIRED BY THE DTS R&O IN CASES OF SUCH CHANGES IN REFERENCE POINTS.   IT ENABLES KVMD TO PROVIDE NEW SERVICE TO AN UNDERSERVED POPULATION RANGING FROM ALMOST 49,000 FOR A NEW SECOND SERVICE TO PRACTICALLY A QUARTER-MILLION FOR A NEW FIFTH SERVICE. IT ALSO ENABLES KVMD TO PROVIDE SERVICE TO A SUBSTANTIAL POPULATION (ESSENTIALLY THAT OF ORANGE COUNTY) THAT, WHILE WITHIN THE PREDICTED KVMD SERVICE CONTOUR, WAS UNABLE TO VIEW THE KVMD SIGNAL DUE TO TERRAIN OBSTRUCTIONS. SINCE THE CHANGE IN REFERENCE POINT WILL PERMIT SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC, WITH NO LOSS OF SERVICE TO ANYONE, ANYWHERE, WE SUBMIT THAT THE PUBLIC INTEREST SHOWING REQUIRED BY THE DTS R&O SIMILARLY HAS BEEN MORE THAN MET. THUS, IT IS RESPECTFULLY REQUESTED THAT THE REFERENCE POINT FOR KVMD BE CHANGED TO THAT CONTAINED IN THIS APPLICATION AND AS DESCRIBED ABOVE.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT / RADIO FREQUENCY RADIATION

[EXTRACT FROM TECHNICAL STATEMENT & COMPLETE SPECIFICATIONS ATTACHED AT EXHIBIT 51.]

NONE OF THE CONDITIONS SPECIFIED IN 1.1307 THAT WOULD REQUIRE THE PREPARATION OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT PERTAIN WITH RESPECT TO THE PROPOSED FACILITIES AT ANY OF THE SITES INCLUDED IN THIS APPLICATION. IN PARTICULAR, BECAUSE THEY WILL BE MOUNTED ON TOWERS AT EXISTING SITES, WITH NO CHANGE IN THE HEIGHTS OF THOSE TOWERS, THE NEW OPERATIONS DO NOT IMPLICATE MANY OF THE CAUSES FOR FURTHER INVESTIGATION AND PREPARATION OF FURTHER REPORTS.

WITH RESPECT TO RADIO FREQUENCY RADIATION EXPOSURE, OET BULLETIN NO. 65 PROVIDES METHODS FOR EVALUATING THE LEVEL OF EXPOSURE FOR BOTH EMPLOYEES (OCCUPATIONAL/CONTROLLED SITUATIONS) AND NON-EMPLOYEES (GENERAL POPULATION/UNCONTROLLED SITUATIONS). THE COMBINATIONS OF THE ANTENNA RADIATION PATTERNS, AS PROVIDED IN THE MANUFACTURERS TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS, WITH THE ANTENNA HEIGHTS ABOVE GROUND LEVEL AND THE OPERATING POWER LEVELS INDICATE THAT THE POTENTIAL EXPOSURE WOULD BE LESS THAN 5 PERCENT OF THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE (MPE) LIMIT FOR GENERAL POPULATION / UNCONTROLLED SITUATIONS AT ALL THREE SITES. SPECIFICALLY, APPLICATION OF THE FORMULAS PROVIDED IN OET 65 YIELDS VALUES OF LESS THAN TWO PERCENT AT DTS SITE 1, LESS THAN THREE PERCENT AT DTS SITE 2, AND LESS THAN ONE-HALF PERCENT AT DTS SITE 3 OF THE MPE LIMIT. THUS, THE PROPOSED OPERATIONS ARE CATEGORICALLY EXCLUDED FROM THE NECESSITY TO SUBMIT DETAILED RF EXPOSURE ANALYSES OF THE SITES.

NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, KVMD RECOGNIZES ITS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF EMPLOYEES AND CONTRACTORS WHEN EXPOSED TO RF RADIATION CONDITIONS. IT WILL TAKE THE STEPS NECESSARY TO ASSURE THAT PERSONNEL WORKING AT EACH FACILITY AND ON THEIR TOWERS AND ANTENNAS ARE PROTECTED FROM EXPOSURE TO RF RADIATION LEVELS EXCEEDING THOSE SPECIFIED IN THE COMMISSIONS RULES. IT WILL TAKE SUCH STEPS IN COORDINATION WITH OTHER SITE USERS AT SITES THAT ARE SHARED. THE STEPS TO BE TAKEN WILL INCLUDE MEASUREMENTS AND MONITORING AS WELL AS POWER REDUCTIONS OR TURNING OFF THE TRANSMITTERS, IF NECESSARY TO ENSURE A SAFE WORKING ENVIRONMENT.

DTS SITE 1 TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS & ANTENNA PATTERNS

[EXTRACT FROM TECHNICAL STATEMENT & COMPLETE SPECIFICATIONS ATTACHED AT EXHIBIT 51.]

THE FACILITIES REQUESTED IN THIS APPLICATION INCLUDE CONTINUED OPERATION AT 150 KW ERP AT A HEIGHT ABOVE AVERAGE TERRAIN OF 780 METERS AT THE SNOW PEAK SITE, OPERATION AT 350 KW ERP AT 333 METERS HAAT AT LA HABRA HEIGHTS, AND OPERATION AT 356 KW AT 576 METERS HAAT AT QUARTZITE MTN. THE CURRENTLY AUTHORIZED FACILITY AT THE SNOW PEAK SITE MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS OF 73.622(F)(8)(II), AS IT DOES NOT EXCEED THE POWER ALLOWABLE AT ITS HAAT, AS DETERMINED USING THE FORMULA PROVIDED IN THE RULE SECTION. SIMILARLY, THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE PARAMETERS IN THE CASES OF THE ADDED GAP-FILLER TRANSMITTERS RESULT IN POWER/HEIGHT COMBINATIONS THAT MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE FACILITIES SPECIFIED BY THE TABLE IN 73.622(F)(8)(I) OF THE COMMISSIONS RULES. THE BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF EACH OF THE TRANSMITTERS PROPOSED IN THE KVMD DTS NETWORK ARE GIVEN IN FIGURES 1A, 1B, AND 1C AT THE END OF THIS STATEMENT AND IN THE RELATED DTS ENGINEERING PORTIONS OF THE FORM 301 APPLICATION ONE FOR EACH TRANSMITTER.

THREE FUNDAMENTAL ANTENNA DESIGNS ARE PROPOSED FOR USE IN THE KVMD DTS NETWORK. THE SNOW PEAK (DTS SITE 1) ANTENNA IS A CARDIOID, END-FED, SLOTTED COAXIAL DESIGN WITH CHARACTERISTICS THAT ORIGINALLY WERE PRIMARILY INTENDED TO PROVIDE INTERFERENCE PROTECTION TO THE OTHER STATION IN THE MARKET WITH WHICH KVMD SHARED DIGITAL CHANNEL 23. SINCE THAT PROTECTION NO LONGER IS REQUIRED, AS A RESULT OF KTBN BEING ALLOTTED TO ANOTHER DIGITAL CHANNEL, IT IS PROPOSED TO ROTATE THE EXISTING ANTENNA BETTER TO SERVE THE AREA TO THE WEST OF THE TRANSMITTER SITE, BUT EAST OF THE SANTIAGO PEAK RIDGE, IN WHICH THE STATIONS SIGNAL CURRENTLY IS WEAKER THAN IT NEEDS TO BE. IT IS PROPOSED TO ROTATE THE AXIS OF SYMMETRY OF THE ANTENNA FROM 100 DEGREES TO 180 DEGREES. THE RESULT WILL BE TO MOVE THE NULL IN THE BACK OF THE ANTENNA PATTERN FROM ROUGHLY WEST TO NORTH FROM THE TRANSMITTER SITE. A FURTHER RESULT WILL BE A REDUCTION IN THE DISTANCE TO THE PNLC TOWARD THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST OF THE TRANSMITTER SITE, PRODUCING CONSEQUENT LOSS AREAS. AS DISCUSSED IN DETAIL IN THE SECTION BELOW ON REFERENCE POINT RELOCATION AND SERVICE AREAS, THERE ARE NO PEOPLE RESIDING IN THE LOSS AREAS WHO ARE PREDICTED TO RECEIVE SERVICE FROM THE CURRENT KVMD FACILITY, AND, THUS, THERE WILL BE NO LOSS OF SERVICE FROM THE PROPOSED REORIENTATION OF THE SNOW PEAK ANTENNA.

THE ANTENNA DESIGN AT THE LA HABRA HEIGHTS SITE (DTS SITE 2) WILL BE A PANEL ARRAY, USING BROADBAND PANELS AND A CORPORATE FEED. IT WILL CONSIST OF A TOTAL OF TWELVE PANELS IN A SINGLE COLUMN AND WILL HAVE A SINGLE MAIN LOBE IN ITS AZIMUTH PATTERN. PANEL OFFSETS WILL BE USED TO REDUCE THE RADIATION FROM THE BACK OF THE ANTENNA ARRAY, BOTH TO LIMIT THE LOCATION OF THE CONTOUR FROM THE LA HABRA HEIGHTS TRANSMITTER AND TO PROVIDE INTERFERENCE PROTECTION TO AN ADJACENT-CHANNEL STATION. IN ADDITION, A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF ELECTRICAL BEAM TILT WILL BE USED, WITH A SHARP CUT-OFF OF THE RADIATION ABOVE THE MAIN BEAM TO HELP CONTROL THE EXTENT OF SIGNAL PROJECTION FROM THE ANTENNA, TO PERMIT BETTER CONTROL OF INTERFERENCE TO THE ADJACENT-CHANNEL STATION AND WITHIN THE DTS NETWORK.

THE ANTENNA DESIGN AT THE QUARTZITE MTN. SITE (DTS SITE 3) WILL BE A CAVITY-SLOT PANEL ARRAY, USING MEDIUM-BROADBAND, DOUBLE-HEIGHT (I.E., TWO-WAVELENGTH) PANELS WITH PARASITIC RADIATORS AND A CORPORATE FEED. IT WILL CONSIST OF A TOTAL OF EIGHT PANELS IN A SINGLE COLUMN AND WILL HAVE A SINGLE MAIN LOBE IN ITS AZIMUTH PATTERN. A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF ELECTRICAL BEAM TILT WILL BE USED, WITH A SHARP CUT-OFF OF THE RADIATION ABOVE THE MAIN BEAM TO HELP CONTROL THE EXTENT OF SIGNAL PROJECTION FROM THE ANTENNA.
