This exhibit supports a further amendment to the WNED-TV maximization application to reduce the proposed effective radiated power from 333 kilowatts to 175 kilowatts to reduce the predicted interference to the presently licensed Channel 31 operating facilities of CITY-DT-2 - Woodstock, Ontario. CITY-DT-2 was originally supposed to move from Channel 31 to Channel 16 as part of the repack process but has, for some reason, elected to remain on Channel 31, which results in WNED-TVís presently proposed maximized Channel 31 facilities being predicted to cause 10.7% interference to CITY-DT-2's presently licensed facilities in a post-repack environment. At the suggestion of the staff of the FCCís International Bureau, the licensee of WNED-TV undertook discussions with the licensee of CITY-DT-2 to attempt to negotiate an agreement per- 1 It also specifies an antenna height which is four meters higher than WNED-TVís presently licensed antenna height and the antenna height specified for WNED-TVís repack replication facilities to correspond to the actual installed height of this antenna, which differs from the presently licensed value. Carl E. Smith Consulting Engineers WNED-TV ENGINEERING STATEMENT (Page 2 of 216) Western New York Public Broadcasting Association Buffalo, NY mitting WNED-TV to operate with post-repack facilities which will cause more than 0.5% interference to CITY-DT-2 when compared to WNED-TVís post-repack allotment baseline facilities. These discussions resulted in the licensee of CITY-DT-2 agreeing to permit WNED-TV to operate on Channel 31 with a nondirectional effective radiated power of 175 kilowatts using the transmitter site and antenna height specified in WNED-TVís present construction permit (0000026684) even though these facilities will result in 3.16% new interference to CITY-DT-2's presently licensed Channel 31 facilities.
