Exhibits
Exhibit 3
Description:
RESUMPTION OF OPERATIONS

STATION KTNE-TV HAS RESUMED OPERATIONS AT REDUCED POWER AND HEIGHT, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TECHNICAL PARAMETERS SET FORTH IN THE SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY APPLICATION IN FCC FILE NO. BDSTA-20150421ABF.

GIVEN THE STATUS OF THE STA APPLICATION, NEBRASKA EDUCATIONAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION ALSO PROVIDES NOTIFICATION, PURSUANT TO SECTION 73.1680 OF THE FCC'S RULES, OF THE USE OF AN EMERGENCY ANTENNA FOR KTNE-TV'S TEMPORARY USE AFTER THE AUTHORIZED MAIN ANTENNA WAS DAMAGED AND CANNOT BE USED. AS EXPLAINED IN THE STA APPLICATION, THE KTNE-TV ANTENNA EXPERIENCED A CATASTROPHIC FAILURE - THE MOUNTING OF THE ANTENNA BROKE AND THE ANTENNA FELL TO THE GROUND. ACCORDINGLY, THE LICENSEE HAS ERECTED A TEMPORARY EMERGENCY ANTENNA ON THE TOWER TO OPERATE AT REDUCED POWER AND ANTENNA HEIGHT UNTIL THE MAIN ANTENNA CAN BE RE-BUILT. AS NOTED, AN STA APPLICATION IS ALREADY ON FILE TO SEEK AUTHORIZATION TO TEMPORARILY UTILIZE THE EMERGENCY ANTENNA FACILITIES. AS DETAILED IN THE STA APPLICATION, THE TEMPORARY ERI STAND-BY ANTENNA CONSISTS OF THREE BAYS MOUNTED AT THE 1000 FOOT LEVEL, ON EACH LEG OF THE TOWER TO DEVELOP AN OMNI-DIRECTIONAL PATTERN AT 1.92 KW ERP.
