Exhibits
Exhibit 3
Description:
RFR STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE

AT THE REDUCED POWER LEVEL PROPOSED HEREIN, THE FORMER MAIN WQHK-FM TRANSMITTER SITE WILL REMAIN COMPLIANT WITH THE FCC GUIDELINE VALUE FOR UNCONTROLLED RFR ENVIRONMENTS. FURTHER, THE APPLICANT REMAINS COMMITTED TO REDUCING POWER OR CEASING OPERATION AS NECESSARY TO PROTECT PERSONS HAVING ACCESS TO THE SITE, TOWER OR ANTENNA FROM RF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS IN EXCESS OF FCC'S OCCUPATIONAL GUIDELINES.

Attachment 3


Exhibit 4
Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES REQUIRING STA

RADIO STATIONS WQHK-FM [FACILITY ID 29859] AND WMEE(FM) [FACILITY ID 51726] SHARE A MASTER ANTENNA WHICH IS SIDE-MOUNTED ON THE TOWER REGISTERED UNDER FCC ASR NUMBER 1031010 SUCH THAT THE MASTER ANTENNA'S RADIATION CENTERLINE HEIGHT IS 201 METERS ABOVE GROUND LEVEL. THE ANTENNA FEEDLINE HAS RECENTLY FAILED AND IS IN NEED OF FURTHER REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT.

IN ITS CURRENT CONDITION, THE MASTER ANTENNA REMAINS CAPABLE OF ALLOWING WQHK-FM TO OPERATE AS LICENSED. HOWEVER, WMEE(FM) WAS FORCED TO OPERATE FROM AN EMERGENCY ANTENNA WHICH IS SIDE-MOUNTED 88 METERS ABOVE GROUND LEVEL ON THE SAME TOWER IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC. A CONCURRENT, RELATED, FILING REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO OPERATE WMEE(FM) FROM THE EMERGENCY ANTENNA.

DURING THE TIME IT WILL TAKE TO REPLACE THE DAMAGED ANTENNA FEEDLINE, WQHK-FM WILL ALSO BE UNABLE TO USE THE LICENSED MASTER ANTENNA. THEREFORE, THIS FILING REQUESTS STA TO OPERATE WQHK-FM FROM ITS FORMERLY LICENSED MAIN ANTENNA (SEE FCC LICENSE FILE NO. BLH-19930603KA; AND SEE THE ATTACHED COPY OF THE ARCHIVED WQHK-FM FM DATABASE RECORD WHICH DESCRIBES THE WQHK-FM FORMER MAIN FACILITY).

IN LIGHT OF THE ABOVE, THE APPLICANT HEREIN REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY (STA) TO OPERATE WQHK-FM WITH THE TECHNICAL FACILITY SPECIFIED HEREIN (TPO=555 WATTS; ERP(DA-MAX)=1 KW) FOR A PERIOD OF 30 DAYS TO ALLOW FOR THE NECESSARY REPAIRS IN ORDER TO RESTORE THE LICENSED FULL POWER OPERATION. AS SHOWN ON THE ATTACHED EXHIBIT, THE 60 DBU (1.0 MV/M) COVERAGE CONTOUR OF THE PROPOSED TEMPORARY FACILITY REMAINS WHOLLY WITH THE 60 DBU (1.0 MV/M) CONTOUR OF THE LICENSED MAIN FACILITY.
