7.11. Environmental Protection Act.    The proposed facility is excluded from environmental processing under 47. C.F.R. Section 1.1306 (i.e., The facility will not have a significant environmental impact and complies with the maximum permissible radiofrequency electromagnetic exposure limits for controlled and uncontrolled environments). Unless the applicant can determine compliance through the use of the RF worksheets in Appendix A, an Exhibit is required.

By checking "Yes" above, the applicant also certifies that it, in coordination with other users of the site, 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.
Yes No

See Explanation in
[Exhibit 3]
8. Please explain in detail the "extraordinary circumstances" which warrant temporary operations at variance from the Commission's Rules. In addition, please specify 1)the specific rules and/or policies from which the applicant seeks temporary relief; 2) how the public interest will be furthered by grant; and 3) the expected duration of the STA and the licensee's plan for restoration of licensed operation. If requesting variance with other than authorized technical facilities, please specify the exact facilities sought. [Exhibit 4]
9. Anti-Drug Abuse Act Certification. Applicant certifies that neither applicant nor any party to the application is subject to denial of federal benefits pursuant to Section 5301 of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, 21 U.S.C. Section 862. Yes No

I certify that I have prepared Engineering Data on behalf of the applicant, and that after such preparation, I have examined and found it to be accurate and true to the best of my knowledge and belief.

Exhibit 3
Description:
RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS

AN ENGINEERING ANALYSIS WAS PERFORMED TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE FACILITIES PROPOSED HEREIN COMPLY WITH THE MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE STANDARDS OUTLINED IN 47CFR1.1310 AS REGARDS HUMAN EXPOSURE TO RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS AND WHETHER ENVIRONMENTAL PROCESSING WOULD BE REQUIRED.

THE APPLICANT PROPOSES TO OPERATE AT 3.25 KILOWATTS, CIRCULARLY POLARIZED, USING A SHIVELY 6810-4R/SS.5 ANTENNA MOUNTED AT THE 40 METER LEVEL OF AN EXISTING 41 METER TOWER. THIS ANTENNA CONSISTS OF FOUR RADIATING ELEMENTS AT ONE HALF WAVELENGTH SPACING.

THE ANTENNA SUPPORT STRUCTURE IS LOCATED NEAR THE APEX OF A LOCAL PROMONTORY. THERE ARE NO SIGNIFICANT RISES IN TERRAIN WITHIN SEVERAL HUNDRED METERS. THE POINT OF CLOSEST APPROACH TO THE ANTENNA IS DIRECTLY BENEATH IT. THE BASE OF THE TOWER IS ACCESSIBLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

THE COMMISSION'S FMMODEL COMPUTER SOFTWARE WAS USED TO CALCULATE THE RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC POWER DENSITY IN A PLANE 2 METERS AGL AS A FUNCTION OF THE DISTANCE FROM THE ANTENNA SUPPORT STRUCTURE. A COPY OF THE GRAPHICAL OUTPUT OF THIS PROGRAM IS ATTACHED.

THE HIGHEST POWER DENSITY OCCURS AT A POINT 148 METERS FROM THE BASE OF THE TOWER AND IS EQUAL TO 3.6 μW/CM^2. THIS REPRESENTS 1.8% OF THE 200 μW/CM^2 GENERAL PUBLIC/UNCONTROLLED MPE STANDARD.

BECAUSE THIS IS LESS THAN 5% OF THE APPROPRIATE MPE STANDARD, THE APPLICANT'S CONTRIBUTION TO THE AMBIENT RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC POWER DENSITY NEED NOT BE CONSIDERED IN CALCULATIONS BY OTHERS, NOR WOULD THE APPLICANT BE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY REMEDIATIVE ACTIONS THAT MIGHT BE NECESSARY WERE IT DETERMINED THAT THE MPE STANDARD WAS EXCEEDED IN AREAS DUE TO THE OPERATION OF OTHERS.

THE APPLICANT BELIEVES THAT THE FACILITIES PROPOSED HEREIN CONFORM TO THE MPE STANDARDS OUTLINED IN 47CFR1.1310 AND THAT ENVIRONMENTAL PROCESSING IS NOT WARRANTED.

Exhibit 4
Description:
NATURE OF EMERGENCY

ON 13 NOVEMBER 2011 A PORTION OF THE KUNC TOWER COLLAPSED DURING A WIND STORM DESTROYING THE UPPER TWO ELEMENTS OF THE KUNC ANTENNA. KUNC IS OPERATING AT MUCH REDUCED POWER USING THE REMAINING FOUR ELEMENTS UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE TOWER AND ANTENNA CAN BE REPAIRED.

THE APPLICANT ANTICIPATES FILING ANOTHER STA IN THE NEAR FUTURE TO ALLOW OPERATION WITH AN EMERGENCY ANTENNA ON AN ADJACENT STRUCTURE.
