Exhibit 34
Description:
NEED FOR STA

THE CURRENT STA EXPIRES MAY 5, 2021

THE STA EXTENSION IS REQUIRED DUE TO THE LOSS OF THE LICENSED TRANSMITTER SITE.

THE STATION CONSULTING ENGINEER, MORGAN BURROW, ADVISES THAT DURING THE MOST RECENT STA PERIOD HE WAS ABLE TO COMPLETE FIELD MEASUREMENTS. HE IS NOW WORKING ON BLENDING THE 2014 AND NEWER FIELD MEASUREMENT DATA REQUIRED FOR THE FCC CP APPLICATION AND REQUESTS ADDITIONAL TIME TO COMPILE, TABULATE, AND PLOT A LARGE NUMBER OF MEASUREMENT POINT DATA REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE APPLICABLE CP APPLICATION.

FOLLOWING A HARD DRIVE CRASH ON MR BURROW'S COMPUTER IN 2020, RESTORING FILES HAS BEEN A CHALLENGE AND SOME OF THE WHYL FIELD INTENSITY MEASUREMENT DATA HAD TO BE HAND RE-ENTERED FROM THE FIELD MEASUREMENT SHEETS. MR BURROW ALSO HAD TO RESTORE THE SOURCE AND EXECUTABLES OF ALLOCATION PROGRAMS USED TO PREPARE ALLOCATION STUDIES AND APPLICATIONS.

MR BURROW REPORTS THAT ON APRIL 7, 2021, WHILE RETURNING HOME FROM TAKING FIELD MEASUREMENTS NORTH OF HUNTINGDON PA, HE RAN INTO A TREE FALLEN ACROSS A TWO LANE CLIFF-SIDE ROAD, TOTALLING HIS VEHICLE. (POLICE REPORT CASE PA2021-466453) DUE TO HEAVY FOG AND NO WARNINGS, HE COULD NOT SEE THE TREE UNTIL THE LAST MOMENT AND STRUCK IT AT LOW SPEED. THE TROOPER RESPONDING TO THE SCENE INDICATED THAT IF THE TREE WAS A FOOT HIGHER OFF THE GROUND, THE WINDSHIELD AND MR. BURROW WOULD HAVE BEEN SMASHED. MR. BURROW IS SHARING HIS WIFE'S CAR AND DOES NOT YET HAVE A REPLACEMENT WORK VEHICLE.

IN ADDITION, THE PANDEMIC HAS DISRUPTED SCHEDULES, CAUSED ONEROUS TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS WHICH HAVE HINDERED EFFORTS TO RELOCATE TO A PERMANENT FACILITY. UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, WHYL IS WORKING TO PREPARE THE REQUIRED FORM 301 APPLICATION AND RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS ADDITIONAL TIME TO ESTABLISH OPERATIONS FROM A PERMANENT LOCATION.

AN STA EXTENSION IS IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST AS IT PERMITS THE STATION TO CONTINUE TO SERVE THE PUBLIC WITH AN IMPORTANT BROADCAST VOICE WHILE THE STATION SEARCHES FOR A VIABLE LICENSED TOWER SITE AND PREPARES TO RESUME LICENSED OPERATION.

THE STATION HAS RECEIVED NO INTERFERENCE COMPLAINTS.
