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).



Exhibits
Exhibit 35
Description:
JUSTIFICATION FOR EXTENSION OF 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, GRANTED 03/02/2012.

THE EXISTING STA GRANTS AUTHORITY TO OPERATE ON THE SAME DIGITAL CHANNEL AS THE GRANTED CONSTRUCTION PERMIT, BUT AT A TEMPORARY LOCATION. THIS TEMPORARY LOCATION HAS PERMITTED 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 REPACKING RULEMAKING IS STILL IN PROGRESS, AND NO TENTATIVE NEW ALLOTMENT TABLE HAS YET BEEN RELEASED. THEREFORE, THE LICENSEE STILL NEEDS TO CONSERVE ECONOMIC RESOURCES, AND THE REASON FOR THE STA REMAINS THE SAME. THE STATION'S STA SIGNAL COVERAGE IS SUBSTANTIAL, SO THE PUBLIC IS RECEIVING SERVICE OVER A WIDE AREA.
