Exhibits
Exhibit 13
Description:
PURPOSE OF STA

DOMINION POWER IS CONSTRUCTING TWO MASSIVE COOLING TOWERS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY ONE MILE FROM THE WSAR ANTENNA SYSTEM. WHEN THE PROJECT IS FINISHED, THE COOLING TOWERS WILL BE DETUNED. UP UNTIL NOW, WSAR HAS BEEN ABLE TO MAINTAIN WSAR WITHIN LICENSED SPECIFICATIONS. THE COOLING TOWER CONSTRUCTION IS NOW AT A POINT, HOWEVER, WHERE AN STA IS NECESSARY TO OBTAIN PARAMETERS AT VARIANCE WHILE MAINTAINING MONITOR POINT LIMITS.

THEREFORE, WSAR IS REQUESTING THIS STA FOR ITS DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA SYSTEM TO OPERATE WITH PARAMETERS AT VARIANCE WHILE MAINTAINING MONITOR POINTS WITHIN LICENSED LIMITS.
