Description:
JUSTIFICATION FOR REQUEST

THIS STATION HAS BEEN SILENT SINCE NOVEMBER 17, 2009. THE PREVIOUS LICENSEE FILED FOR SILENCE AUTHORITY, AND AN STA WAS GRANTED THROUGH AUGUST 24, 2010, BASED ON THE PLAN FOR OREGON PUBLIC BROADCASTING (OPB) TO ACQUIRE THE STATION, MOVE IT TO A TRANSMITTING SITE THAT WILL PROVIDE SUPERIOR PUBLIC SERVICE, AND UPGRADE EQUIPMENT. OPB INHERITED THE STA AT CLOSING. THE SITE CHANGE HAS TAKEN LONGER THAN ANTICIPATED AND THE STATION IS NOT YET BACK ON THE AIR, AND AS SUCCESSOR LICENSEE OPB DID NOT NOTE THE AUGUST 24 DATE. REINSTATEMENT AND EXTENSION OF THE SILENCE STA IS THEREFORE REQUESTED. OPB HAS SIGNED A LEASE FOR THE NEW SITE, ALL EQUIPMENT HAS BEEN PURCHASED AND IS ON HAND, AND OPB HAS CONTRACTED WITH TOWER RIGGER AND AWAITS THE SCHEDULING OF INSTALLATION.

OPB ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE STATION MUST RETURN TO THE AIR BY NOVEMBER 17, 2010, AND PLANS TO COMPLETE RESTORATION OF OPERATIONS WELL IN ADVANCE OF THAT DATE.
