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

Exhibits
Exhibit 3
Description:
EXHIBIT 3

THE PROPOSED STA FACILITIES WOULD UTILIZE THE LICENSED ANTENNA SYSTEM, ALBEIT AT A REDUCED EFFECTIVE RADIATED POWER. AS A RESULT, THE STA WOULD NOT INCREASE THE EXISTING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ALREADY PRESENT FROM THE ENVIRONMENTAL FACILITY. ADDITIONALLY, THE REDUCTION IN THE ERP WILL REDUCE THE RF LEVEL AT GROUND LEVEL. AIREN WILL COORDINATE WITH ALL OTHER USERS OF THE SITE TO ENSURE THAT WORKERS AND OTHER PERSONNEL ARE NOT EXPOSED TO LEVELS OF RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION IN EXCESS OF THE APPLICABLE SAFETY STANDARDS.

Exhibit 4
Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES JUSTIFYING STA

KBAE EXPERIENCED TRANSMITTER MALFUNCTION ON THE EVENING OF MONDAY FEBRUARY 15, 2016, AND PROMPTLY REMOVED THEN TRANSPORTED THE TRANSMITTER TO THE MANUFACTURER FOR REPAIR LATER THAT WEEK. KBAE SENT A LOW POWER NOTIFICATION TO THE COMMISSION ON FEBRUARY 25, 2016, COPY ATTACHED, INDICATING THAT KBAE HAD SWITCHED OPERATIONS TO ITS AUXILIARY ANTENNA. UPON RETURN FROM THE MANUFACTURER, KBAE INSTALLED THE REPAIRED TRANSMITTER FOR SERVICE. DURING THE FEBRUARY 29TH RE-INSTALLATION PROCESS, TRANSMISSION LINE DAMAGE WAS DISCOVERED, LIKELY HAVING RESULTED FROM THE REMOVAL PROCESS. AS A RESULT OF THE LINE DAMAGE, REFLECTED POWER ISSUES PREVENT OPERATION ON THE MAIN ANTENNA SYSTEM AT FULL AUTHORIZED POWER. ENGINEERS HAVE DETERMINED THAT REPLACEMENT OF THE ENTIRE RUN OF TRANSMISSION LINE WILL BE NECESSARY. SEVERE WEATHER IN THE REGION HAS PREVENTED THE TRANSMISSION LINE REPLACEMENT TO DATE. CURRENT WEATHER FORECASTS INDICATE THE WEATHER MAY IMPROVE IN THE NEAR FUTURE ALLOWING AIREN TO EFFECT REPLACEMENT OF THE TRANSMISSION LINE. UNTIL SUCH TIME AS KBAE CAN COMPLETE THE NECESSARY RE-CABLING, IT REQUESTS A WAIVER OF THE OPERATING POWER REQUIREMENTS OF 47 C.F.R. SEC 73.1560(B), PURSUANT TO THE SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY PERMISSIONS OF 47 C.F.R. SEC 73.1635 AND AS REFERENCED IN 47 C.F.R. SEC 73.1560(D), TO OPERATE THE LICENSED ANTENNA SYSTEM AT REDUCED POWER PENDING REPLACEMENT OF THE TRANSMISSION LINE. THE SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY SOUGHT HEREIN WILL SERVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST BY MAINTAINING SERVICE OF KBAE TO THE PUBLIC IT SERVES. IT IS RESPECTFULLY REQUESTED THAT THE SPECIAL TEMPORARY BE GRANTED FOR A PERIOD OF NO LESS THAN 45 DAYS.
