Exhibits
Exhibit 40
Description:
REQUEST FOR ANALOG STA

THE STATION HAS MANY INDIGENT FORMER VIEWERS WHO HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO SEE THE RELIGIOUS AND NON-RELIGIOUS PROGRAMMING OFFERED BY KSCE. WE ESTIMATE THERE ARE AS MANY AS 500,000 ANALOG RECEIVERS STILL IN USE IN THE MARKET. THE FORMER ANALOG VIEWERS HAVE BEEN VERY VOCAL IN CONTACTING THE STATION TO SAY THEY CAN NO LONGER RECEIVE THE SIGNAL BECAUSE THEY CANNOT AFFORD EITHER A DIGITAL RECEIVER, OR A CABLE OR SATELLITE SUBSCRIPTION.

IT IS ALSO NOTED THAT EL PASO, TX IS ON THE MEXICAN BORDER ADJACENT TO JUAREZ, MEXICO. THE COMMISSION IS REQUESTED TO TAKE OFFICIAL NOTICE OF THE NEWS ACCOUNTS PERTAINING TO THE DRUG WARS THAT HAVE INFESTED PORTIONS OF MEXICO AND PARTICULARLY JUAREZ. BECAUSE OF THE RAMPANT VIOLENCE ASSOCIATED WITH THE DRUG WARS, AMERICAN CITIZENS IN BORDERING EL PASO NEED TO BE INFORMED REGARDING POTENTIAL DANGERS IN TRAVELING NEAR THE BORDER OR IN CROSSING THE BORDER. BROADCAST FACILITIES, INCLUDING THOSE OF KSCE, ARE VITAL TO VIEWERS IN THIS AREA IN KEEPING THEM INFORMED OF POTENTIAL SAFETY ISSUES. ACCORDINGLY, A WAIVER OF THE COMMISSIONS RULES WOULD BE IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST DUE TO THE CRITICAL SITUATION IN THIS COMMUNITY. ACCORDINGLY, A WAIVER OF ANY AND ALL COMMISSION RULES THAT MIGHT BE REQUIRED IS RESPECTFULLY REQUESTED.

IT IS FURTHER NOTED THAT THE STA REQUESTED HEREIN SEEKS AUTHORIZATION TO OPERATE WITH THE FACILITIES PREVIOUSLY AUTHORIZED BY THE COMMISSION FOR ANALOG OPERATION OF KSCE.

ERP BELOW THE HORIZON IS 42.16 KW, AND AT THE RADIO HORIZON IS 15.72 KW.

THE FORMER ANALOG BACKUP TRANSMITTER, A 1 KW TTC XL1000, IS READY TO GO ON THE AIR.
