Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
EXHIBIT 1

THE BOX WAS INADVERTENTLY CHECKED AND CANNOT BE CORRECTED. THE PROPER RESPONSE TO QUESTION 7.0 IS 'OTHER ANTENNA SYSTEM.'

Attachment 1


Exhibit 3
Description:
ENVIRONMENTAL PROCESSING

THE APPLICANT HAS DETERMINED, USING FCC/OET FMM210 SOFTWARE, THAT NO MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC WILL BE EXPOSED AT ANY POINT ON THE GROUND TO A RADIATION LEVEL EXCEEDING 0.2 MW/CM2, THE MAXIMUM LEVEL ALLOWED UNDER OET 65 GUIDELINES. APPLICANT WILL LOWER ITS TRANSMITTER POWER AS NECESSARY TO LIMIT EXPOSURE TO WORKERS ON THE TOWER TO LESS THAN 1.0 MW/CM2, THE MAXIMUM RADIATION LEVEL ALLOWED FOR WORKERS UNDER OET 65 GUIDELINES.


Attachment 3
Description
FM Model


Exhibit 4
Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES WARRANTING ENGINEERING STA APPROVAL

STATION KLUQ, HERMANN, MISSOURI HAS BEEN BROADCASTING FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AT REDUCED POWER, BUT, BECAUSE OF MISCOMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN STATION STAFF AND COUNSEL, NO EARLIER STA REQUEST HAS BEEN FILED.

THE REASON FOR THE REDUCED POWER IS THAT THE HIGHER POWER TRANSMITTER USED BY THE PRIOR LICENSEE WAS NOT AVAILABLE FOR USE AT THE HERMANN STATION AND, CONSEQUENTLY, STATION KLUQ HAS HAD TO OBTAIN A LESSER POWER TRANSMITTER TEMPORARILY TO PLACE THE STATION IN OPERATION. THE CURRENT LICENSEE, WHICH WAS APPOINTED BY THE COURT TO OPERATE THE STATION IN ORDER TO PROTECT INNOCENT CREDITORS, HAS PLACED A DEPOSIT ON A NEW BROADCAST ELECTRONICS FM208 20 KW FM TRANSMITTER, SO THAT STATION KLUQ MAY AGAIN BROADCAST AT FULL POWER.

LICENSEE ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR ITS ERROR IN OPERATING TEMPORARILY WITHOUT SEEKING FCC AUTHORIZATION DURING THIS PERIOD. UTILITY BILLS SHOWING THAT THE STATION HAS BEEN OPERATING TEMPORARILY AT REDUCED POWER FOR MONTHS WILL BE PROVIDED TO THE FCC UPON ITS REQUEST. SINCE THE STATION INCURRED REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE DURING THIS PERIOD, INVOICES FOR THESE EXPENSES CAN BE PROVIDED AS WELL.

STATION KLUQ EXPECTS TO FILE A MINOR CHANGE APPLICATION VERY SOON, SO THAT IT MAY BROADCAST WITH CLASS C2 STATION FACILITIES. WITH FCC APPROVAL OF THIS STA REQUEST, STATION KLUQ, HERMANN WILL CONTINUE OPERATION WHILE THE STATION PURSUES ITS LONGER TERM GOAL OF PERMANENT OPERATION AS A FULL C2 STATION.
