Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
REASON FOR SILENT STA

EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION (EMF), THE LICENSEE OF FM RADIO STATION KLVB, CITRUS HEIGHTS, CALIFORNIA, PURSUANT TO SECTIONS 73.1635 AND 73.561 OF THE COMMISSION'S RULES, HEREBY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO ALLOW KLVB TO REMAIN SILENT.

AS THE COMMISSION IS AWARE, EMF WAS FORCED TO TEMPORARILY DISCONTINUE OPERATIONS AT KLVB AFTER RECEIVING NOTIFICATION FROM THE KLVB TOWER OPERATOR THAT IT RECEIVED AN FAA NOTICE OF PRESUMED HAZARD RELATED TO KLVB. THE NOTICE INDICATED THAT KLVB TRANSMISSION ON 99.5MHZ, THROUGH THE INTERACTION WITH ANOTHER STATION, COULD POSSIBLY CREATE INTERMODULATION INTERFERENCE TO A FREQUENCY USED BY THE FAA AS PART OF THE APPROACH TO A LOCAL AIRPORT.

EMF HAS CONTINUED TO WORK WITH THE FAA IN AN EFFORT TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE, AND HAS OFFERED SOLUTIONS THAT SHOULD RESOLVE THE ISSUE. IN RECENT MONTHS, EMF AND ITS ATTORNEYS HAVE PREPARED A PRESENTATION TO THE FAA'S MANAGEMENT THAT WILL REQUEST MODIFICATION OF THE FAA'S POLICIES RELATED TO CHANGING THE ILS FREQUENCY. EMF'S ATTORNEYS WORKED WITH THE FAA'S VICE PRESIDENT OF TECHNICAL OPERATIONS AND ESTABLISHED APRIL 28, 2011 AS THE DATE FOR THIS PRESENTATION AND SUBSEQUENT DISCUSSION.   

EMF PREVIOUSLY COORDINATED WITH THE FAA AND FCC TO RESTORE SERVICE ON A TEMPORARY BASIS TO PRESERVE THE STATION LICENSE AND AVOID AUTOMATIC TERMINATION DUE TO THE STATION BEING SILENT FOR ONE YEAR. EMF RECEIVED AUTHORIZATION FROM THE FAA TO TEMPORARILY OPERATE KLVB DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS ON APRIL 1, 2011. EMF SUBSEQUENTLY REQUESTED SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY FROM THE COMMISSION. THE STA WAS GRANTED ON MARCH 30, 2011 (FILE NO. BSTA-20110329ADO) AND THE STATION TEMPORARILY RESUMED OPERATIONS OF THE STATION FOR APPROXIMATELY ONE HOUR AND THIRTY MINUTES ON APRIL 1, 2011 PURSUANT TO THE AFOREMENTIONED STA.   IN ORDER TO COMPLY WITH THE FAA'S OPERATION RESTRICTION, EMF CEASED OPERATION OF THE STATION ON APRIL 1, 2011. ACCORDINGLY, EMF HEREBY SEEKS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO REMAIN SILENT WHILE WORKING WITH THE FAA TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE.

GRANT OF THIS STA REQUEST WILL ALLOW EMF TIME TO CONTINUE TO WORK WITH THE FAA IN FINDING A RESOLUTION TO THE INTERMODULATION INTERFERENCE ISSUE.
