NARRATIVE FOR STA REQUEST

NARRATIVE FOR STA REQUEST

TOLEDO RADIO, LLC LICENSEE/PERMITEE OF WPFX-FM (ID# 7821) HEREBY REQUESTS AN STA FOR 45 DAYS TO BEGIN EQUIPMENT TESTS IMMEDIATELY ON A NON-COMMERCIAL BASIS FROM THE NEW TRANSMITTER SITE LOCATED NEAR LUCKEY OHIO. (WPFX-FM WAS FORMERLY LICENSED TO SERVE NORTH BALTIMORE, OHIO, BUT WAS GRANTED A CP TO MOVE THE COMMUNITY OF LICENSE FROM N BALTIMORE, OH TO LUCKEY, OH WHERE THERE IS NO PRESENT BROADCAST SERVICE. THIS LEFT N BALTIMORE WITHOUT SERVICE UNTIL WLFC (FM) CAN RECEIVE A GRANT OF PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY.) THE WLFC (FM) APPLICATION FOR NEW LICENSE WILL BE FORTHCOMING AS SOON AS THEIR ANTENNA IS INSTALLED. COPIES OF THE ANTENNA ORDER, THE CURRENT ORDER STATUS FROM PSI, THE ANTENNA MANUFACTURER, AND FROM THE TOWER CREW ARE ATTACHED. AS CAN BE SEEN FROM THE LETTERS, IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THE WLFC APPLICATION FOR LICENSE AND PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY WILL BE FILED AROUND OCTOBER 1 OR THEREABOUTS.

THE 302 APPLICATION FOR PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY AND LICENSE FOR WPFX-FM HAS BEEN FILED, BUT MAY NOT BE GRANTED PURSUANT TO THE CP UNTIL SUCH A TIME AS WLFC (FM) COMPLETES ITS NEW INSTALLATION AND SERVICE TO NORTH BALTIMORE AND GRANT OF PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY TO COVER THE CP TO REPLACE WPFX-FM, THUS BOTH LUCKEY OH AND N BALTIMORE OH ARE WITHOUT BROADCAST SERVICE AT THE PRESENT.

FROM THE NEW LOCATION AUTHORIZED IN THE CP, WPFX-FM WILL PUT A 60 DBU CONTOUR OVER MOST OF N BALTIMORE WHERE IT WAS FORMERLY LICENSED AS WELL AS OVER LUCKEY. IT IS REQUESTED THAT THE TEMPORARY AUTHORITY HEREIN REQUESTED BE AT THE POWER AUTHORIZED IN THE CP SINCE THE ANTENNA HAS BEEN OPTIMIZED AND MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE CP. BY ALLOWING THIS DURING THE INTERIM PERIOD THE 60 DBU SIGNAL FROM THE NEW SITE CAN BE PLACED OVER N BALTIMORE AS PROPOSED. WPFX-FM PROPOSES TO OPERATE WITHOUT COMMERCIALS UNTIL RECEIPT OF AUTHORIZATION FROM THE FCC FOR ITS PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY AND LICENSE WITH THE DIRECTION ANTENNA ARRAY ALREADY IN PLACE. THIS WILL ALLOW THE STATION TO PROVIDE SERVICE TO BOTH LUCKEY AND MOST OF N BALTIMORE WHILE THE FACILITIES OF WLFC ARE BEING COMPLETED PROVIDING THE CITIZENS OF BOTH COMMUNITIES WITH A BROADCAST SERVICE, ALBEIT NON-COMMERCIAL. THIS WOULD APPEAR TO BE IN THE BEST PUBLIC INTEREST, ESPECIALLY WITH THE FALL ELECTIONS AND THE FALL SPORTING EVENTS IN THE AREA OF COVERAGE OF SUCH WIDESPREAD INTEREST THIS YEAR.

DURING THIS EQUIPMENT TESTING PERIOD WPFX-FM WOULD BE IDENTIFYING ITSELF AS A N BALTIMORE STATION, AS IN THE PAST, UNTIL SUCH A TIME AS WLFC RECEIVED ITS GRANT OF LICENSE FOR ITS NEW FACILITIES. THE ORIGINAL TRANSMITTER FOR WPFX-FM THAT WAS DONATED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF FINDLAY, LICENSEE OF WLFC (FM) HAS ALREADY BEEN REBUILT AND RETUNED WITH THE NEW WLFC FREQUENCY, BUT THERE IS NO ANTENNA AVAILABLE UNTIL THE NEW DA IS INSTALLED IN ABOUT 3 WEEKS.THE FEEDLINE TO THE ANTENNA IS ALREADY IN PLACE.

BY ALLOWING THIS STA AS REQUESTED THERE WOULD BE NO INTERFERENCE TO ANY OTHER STATION, BUT INSTEAD WOULD PROVIDE BROADCAST SERVICE TO TWO UNSERVED COMMUNITIES IN THE BEST PUBLIC INTEREST AND ON A PSA/PUBLIC EVENT ONLY EQUIPMENT TESTING PERIOD. THE FACILITIES AT WPFX-FM ARE NEW WITH NEW COMPUTER CONTROLLED STUDIOS AND TRANSMITTER AND NEED TO BE OPTIMIZED AND TESTED BEFORE FINAL PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY BEGINS.




BY ALLOWING THIS STA REQUEST:

(1)TWO UNSERVED COMMUNITIES WILL BE SERVED, THUS PROVIDING SERVICE FOR THE BEST PUBLIC INTEREST AND CONVENIENCE;
(2)THERE WILL BE NO COMMERCIALS UNTIL SUCH A TIME AS THE FCC GRANTS A LICENSE AND PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY TO WLFC WHICH AT THAT TIME WILL PROVIDE SERVICE TO N BALTIMORE;
(3)THE STATION WILL IDENTIFY AS N BALTIMORE/LUCKEY AS COMMUNITIES OF LICENSE UNTIL WLFC RECEIVES ITS AUTHORITY FOR LICENSE AND PTA;
(4)NO OTHER STATION WILL RECEIVE NOR CAUSE INTERFERENCE AS A RESULT OF THE GRANT OF STA FOR EQUIPMENT TEST;
(5)THE REQUEST FOR THE STA IS FOR 45 DAYS TO ALLOW WLFCS NEW ANTENNA TO BE INSTALLED, OPTIMIZED, AND AN APPLICATION FOR LICENSE AND PTA FILED WITH THE FCC AND GRANT OF SAME.
(6)WITH THE POLITICAL INTEREST AND FALL SPORTING EVENTS FOR THE AREA, THE PUBLIC IN THE COVERAGE AREA OF WPFX-FM ARE PRESENTLY WITHOUT SERVICE FOR INFORMATION AND NEWS, THUS THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS REQUEST.

THE GRANT OF THIS STA REQUEST IS NECESSARY AS THE UNFORESEEN DELAYS ON THE ANTENNA SYSTEM FOR WLFC (FM) HAVE CREATED A TIMING ISSUE FOR BOTH STATIONS. BOTH STATIONS ARE COMPLETE EXCEPT FOR THE ANTENNA INSTALLATION AT WLFC. THE TRANSMITTER, STL, FEEDLINE, ETC. ARE COMPLETED AT BOTH STATIONS.

BY SERVING BOTH COMMUNITIES FROM THE NEW LOCATION WPFX-FM WITH THE STA, WILL FILL IN A VOID ON A TEMPORARY PERIOD PENDING FCC ACTION ON THE WLFC APPLICATION TO BE FILED SHORTLY, AND THE WPFX-FM APPLICATION ALREADY ON FILE. THIS FILLING OF THE BROADCAST VOID IN THIS AREA OF OHIO WILL CERTAINLY BE IN THE BEST PUBLIC INTEREST FOR ALL.
