Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. Because the station no longer broadcasts in analog stream, the correct response to Question number 7(b) is NO, however, to enable the submit option of this form, it was necessary to provide a 'yes' response. Technical difficulties of undetermined origin caused two E/I programs that air on EHTM to freeze on air on Sunday, 7/5. Programs affected: Outback Adventures (OA114)and Born To Explore (BTE417). After due review of internal station records and documentation provided to us by program suppliers, the licensee hereby certifies that the station fully complied with the FCC's commercial limits in children's programs, as specified at 47 C.F.R.Section 73.670, with respect to all programs specifically designed for children ages twelve and under.
