Exhibits
Exhibit 38
Description:
EXHIBIT 38

FAMILY BROADCASTING GROUP, INC., LICENSEE OF STATION KSBI, OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA (FACILITY ID NO. 38214), HAS BEEN GRANTED APPROVAL TO CHANGE OPERATION FROM CHANNEL 51 TO CHANNEL 23 BY THE GRANT OF FCC FILE NO. BPCDT-201402220ACB. IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE CONFUSION AMONG VIEWERS, FAMILY HEREBY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY ('STA') TO CONTINUE OPERATIONS ON CHANNEL 51 FOR A TWO WEEK PERIOD IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING COMMENCEMENT OF PROGRAM TESTS ON CHANNEL 23. KSBI EXPECTS TO COMMENCE PROGRAM TESTS ON CHANNEL 23 ON OR ABOUT MAY 22, 2014. THEREFORE, THE 2-WEEK STA PERIOD WOULD BE FROM LATE MAY TO EARLY JUNE.

THE STA WILL ENABLE KSBI TO CONTINUE TO BROADCAST ON CHANNEL 51 AND AIR ANNOUNCEMENTS THAT DIRECT VIEWERS TO STATION'S OPERATION ON NEW CHANNEL 23. OPERATION ON CHANNEL 51 WOULD BE CONDUCTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FACILITIES SPECIFIED IN KSBI'S LICENSE FOR CHANNEL 51 (FCC FILE NO. BLCDT-20090611AAE); HOWEVER, DURING THE PERIOD OF STA OPERATIONS, CHANNEL 51 WILL OPERATE AT REDUCED POWER AS A RESULT OF CHANGES REQUIRED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF CHANNEL 23.

DURING THE STA PERIOD, EACH CHANNEL WILL OPERATE WITH A SEPARATE TSID VALUE. IT IS EXPECTED THAT CHANNEL 51 WILL CONTINUE TO USE THE DIGITAL TSID VALUE (2357) ASSIGNED TO KSBI, AND CHANNEL 23 WILL USE THE ANALOG TSID VALUE (2356) ASSIGNED TO KSBI. THE LICENSEE HAS SEPARATELY REQUESTED AUTHORITY TO PERMANENTLY CHANGE KSBI'S DIGITAL TSID VALUE TO 2356, SO THAT NO CHANGE TO THE TSID VALUE USED BY CHANNEL 23 WILL BE REQUIRED DURING OR FOLLOWING THE STA TRANSITION PERIOD. SEE LETTER DATED MAY 12, 2014 FROM MR. MERRILL WEISS TO MR. HOSSEIN HASHEMZADEH.
