Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
REASON FOR STA

THIS STA IS BEING REQUESTED BECAUSE OF AN INTERFERENCE ISSUE. ON 5/12/2015 A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE FAA CONTACTED THE REGIONAL OFFICE OF THE FCC WHO THEN CONTACTED THE WCOZ STUDIO AND ENGINEER INDICATING THAT AN INTERFERENCE ISSUE (A SPUR AROUND 118 MHZ) WAS PRESENT ON THE WCOZ SIGNAL. AT THE TIME THE OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE AND THE TEMPERATURE INSIDE THE WCOZ TRANSMITTER BUILDING WAS VERY HIGH. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THIS CAUSED THE WCOZ TRANSMITTER TO BROADCAST THE SPUR. WCOZ DISCONTINUED OPERATION AT THIS TIME. WCOZ IS ORDERING ADDITIONAL FILTERING AND REPLACING THE TRANSMITTER WITH A NEWER MODEL. BEFORE RETURNING TO AIR, WCOZ WILL COORDINATE WITH THE FAA TO GUARANTEE NO INTERFERENCE IS CAUSED AND VERY CLOSELY MONITOR THE TRANSMISSION WITH A SPECTRUM ANALYZER. AN STA OF 60 TO 90 DAYS IS REQUESTED TO REPAIR THESE ISSUES.
