Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
REASONS FOR EXTENSION

AS PREVIOUSLY REPRESENTED TO THE COMMISSION, THE LICENSEE HAD BEEN ADVISED THAT IT WAS NOT ECONOMICALLY PRUDENT TO BUILD THE DIGITAL FACILITY. IT WAS FURTHER STATED THAT THE LICENSEE ANTICIPATED THAT IN THE SECOND HALF OF 2002, WOODS COMMUNICATION CORPORATION, THE LICENSEE, WOULD BE IN A POSITION TO EITHER OBTAIN FINANCING TO BUILD THE DTV FACILITY OR REQUEST SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY (STA) TO BUILD A MINIMUM FACILITY. CONCURRENT WITH THE INSTANT APPLICATION, THE LICENSEE IS FILING A REQUEST FOR AN STA TO BUILD A MINIMUM FACILITY. UPON GRANT OF THE STA, THE LICENSEE WILL TAKE IMMEDIATE STEPS TO IMPLEMENT THE STA.

Attachment 1


Exhibit 2
Description:
EXHIBIT 2

THE APPLICANT, SINCE THE GRANT OF THE LAST EXTENSION, HAS BEEN CONCENTRATING ON IMPROVING WCOV'S CASH FLOW IN AN EFFORT TO BE FINANCIALLY ABLE TO BUILD THE DTV FACILITY.
