Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
BASIS FOR REQUEST

AS THE LICENSEE SEEKS TO PLACE KCEG INTO OPERATION, HE IS DISCOVERING PROBLEMS WITH HIS TRANSMITTING EQUIPMENT. THE STATION'S NEW COMMON POINT NETWORK DESIGN HAS ONE CAPACITOR THAT CONTINUES TO GET WARM TO THE TOUCH WHEN IT SHOULD NOT BE DOING SO. THE LICENSEE IS PROPOSING TO INSTALL A VACUUM CAPACITOR TO DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM. IN ADDITION, THE NAUTEL TRANSMITTER IS OPERATING WITH CONTINUOUS ON/OFF CYCLING THAT HAS RESULTED IN SOME COMPONENT FAILURES DURING THE STUTTERING. REPAIRS ARE BEING MADE TO THE DAMAGED PARTS AND THE LICENSEE IS WORKING ON A PERMANENT FIX FOR THE TRANSMITTER LOGIC AS WELL AS ENSURING THAT THE TRANSMITTER CAN FUNCTION PROPERLY DURING BOTH DAYTIME AND NIGHTTIME OPERATING HOURS. IN ORDER TO ALLOW THIS WORK TO BE COMPLETED PROMPTLY, THE LICENSEE NEEDS ADDITIONAL TIME IN WHICH THE STATION IS SILENT, WHILE THE LICENSEE WORKS ON REPAIRING HIS EQUIPMENT.
