I'm sorry to say this, but in this case you are completely wrong.  The
language of the Balanced Budget Act of 1994,  Title 47 United States Code
section 309, paragraph 14(A) clearly states:

"A television broadcast license that authorizes analog television service
may not be renewed to authorize such service for a period that extends
beyond December 31, 2006."

Paragraph 14(B) then goes on to list all of the exceptions that must be met
to extend this cutoff date.
