Exhibits
Exhibit 15
Description:
EXHIBIT 15 - ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS

IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE PROPOSED STA FACILITY MAY BE EXCLUDED FROM ENVIRONMENTAL PROCESSING UNDER 47. C.F.R. SECTION 1.1306 BECAUSE THE FACILITY WILL NOT CREATE A SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT. (AN EXISTING TOWER WILL BE USED FOR THIS STA WITH NO CHANGES REQUIRED IN THE TOWER OR THE IMMEDIATE AREA SURROUNDING IT. ALSO, THIS STA OPERATION WILL COMPLY WITH THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC EXPOSURE LIMITS FOR CONTROLLED AND UNCONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTS.)

FURTHER THE TOWER BASE AREA WILL BE SURROUNDED BY A POSTED AND LOCKED FENCE THAT WILL LIMIT APPROACH TO DISTANCES OF GREATER THAN 2 METERS, THEREFORE EXPOSURE AT PUBLICLY ACCESSIBLE LOCATIONS FROM THE 600 WATT FOLDED UNIPOLE ANTENNA WILL BE WELL BELOW THE GENERAL PUBLIC LIMITS (I.E.: 18.74% OF THE ELECTRIC AND 10.54% OF THE MAGNETIC MPE LIMITS FOR UNCONTROLLED/GENERAL POPULATION ENVIRONMENTS). IF NECESSARY, MEASUREMENTS CAN BE CONDUCTED TO CONFIRM COMPLIANCE. FURTHER, THE APPLICANT HEREIN AFFIRMS THAT IT IS THE ONLY USER OF THE SITE, BUT IT WILL NEVERTHELESS COORDINATE WITH ANY FUTURE USERS OF THE SITE. ADDITIONALLY, THE APPLICANT WILL REDUCE POWER OR CEASE OPERATION AS NECESSARY TO PROTECT PERSONS HAVING ACCESS TO THE SITE, TOWER OR ANTENNA FROM RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC EXPOSURE IN EXCESS OF FCC GUIDELINES.

Exhibit 16
Description:
EXHIBIT 16 - NATURE OF THE STA REQUEST

DUE TO THE LOSS OF ITS EXISTING TRANSMITTER SITE, WHVN CEASED BROADCASTING AND WENT SILENT AS OF MARCH 31, 2020 (SEE BLSTA-20200402AAD). THE LICENSEE, (WHVN, INC.), IS PRESENTLY EXPLORING ALTERNATIVE PERMANENT REPLACEMENT SITES.

IN THE MEANTIME, WHVN, INC. HEREIN RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY (STA) USING THE PARAMETERS DESCRIBED HEREIN IN ORDER TO RECOMMENCE SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY. GIVEN THE DIFFICULTY OF LOCATING A SITE IN THIS HIGHLY DEVELOPED REGION, THE LENGTH OF TIME REQUESTED FOR THIS STA IS 12 MONTHS.

THIS STA REQUESTS THE USE OF A TEMPORARY TRANSMITTING SITE THAT IS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY OF LICENSE. THIS SITE IS PRESENTLY OWNED BY THE LICENSEE AND IS THE LOCATION OF THEIR EXISTING SELF-SUPPORTING, BASE GROUNDED STL TOWER. IT IS PROPOSED TO ATTACH A SINGLE WIRE UNIPOLE SYSTEM TO THIS TOWER TO SERVE AS THE ANTENNA SYSTEM. (PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHED FIGURE 2 - 'ANTENNA SKETCH' FOR A REPRESENTATIVE ILLUSTRATION.) GIVEN THE TOWER HEIGHT ABOVE GROUND, THE CALCULATED ELECTRICAL HEIGHT IS 68 DEGREES. DAY AND NIGHTTIME OPERATION AT A POWER OF NO MORE THAN 600 WATTS IS BEING REQUESTED.

THE INCLUDED FIGURE 1 SUPPLIES A COMPARATIVE COVERAGE MAP SHOWING THAT THE PROPOSED STA 0.5 MV/M CONTOUR DOES NOT EXCEED THE STATION'S PRESENTLY AUTHORIZED 0.5 MV/M CONTOUR. AS IS ALSO SHOWN, THE 5 MV/M PRINCIPAL COMMUNITY COVERAGE CONTOUR DEVELOPED UNDER THIS STA IS PREDICTED TO ENCOMPASS 52.6% OF THE POPULATION OF THE CITY OF LICENSE, CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA.

A GRANT OF THIS STA WILL RESTORE SERVICE TO A PORTION OF THE LICENSED OVERAGE AREA AND IS THEREFOR BELIEVED TO BE IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST.
