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.

WILLFUL FALSE STATEMENTS ON THIS FORM ARE PUNISHABLE BY FINE AND/OR IMPRISONMENT (U.S. CODE, TITLE 18, SECTION 1001), AND/OR REVOCATION OF ANY STATION LICENSE OR CONSTRUCTION PERMIT (U.S. CODE, TITLE 47, SECTION 312(a)(1)), AND/OR FORFEITURE (U.S. CODE, TITLE 47, SECTION 503).



Exhibits
Exhibit 3
Description:
RFR STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE

THE WLAV-FM ANTENNA WILL BE SIDE-MOUNTED ON AN EXISTING TOWER CURRENTLY USED BY TELEVISION STATION WGVU-TV, GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN. FOR A MULTIPLE-USE SITE SUCH AS THIS, THE PERCENTAGE OF THE FCC GUIDELINE VALUE EACH FACILITY CONTRIBUTES MUST BE DETERMINED, AND THE SUM OF THE INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTIONS MUST NOT EXCEED 100% OF THE FCC GUIDELINE VALUE. THE ATTACHED TABLE, ENTITLED 'SUMMARY OF RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION STUDY', SHOWS THE STATIONS CONSIDERED IN THE INSTANT STUDY AND EACH STATION'S DISTANCE FROM THE TEMPORARY ANTENNA LOCATION. AS SHOWN ON THE ATTACHED TABLE, THE MAXIMUM CUMULATIVE PREDICTED POWER DENSITY AT THE SHARED SITE REPRESENTS ONLY 11.14% OF THE FCC GUIDELINE VALUE FOR 'UNCONTROLLED' ENVIRONMENTS.

BASED ON THE CALCULATIONS DISCUSSED ABOVE, THE MAXIMUM CUMULATIVE PREDICTED POWER DENSITY AT THE SHARED SITE IS 2.22% OF THE FCC GUIDELINE VALUE FOR 'CONTROLLED' ENVIRONMENTS. THE APPLICANT WILL INSURE THE PROTECTION OF STATION PERSONNEL OR TOWER CONTRACTORS WORKING IN THE VICINITY OF THE PROPOSED TRANSMITTING ANTENNA. THE APPLICANT WILL REDUCE POWER AND/OR CEASE OPERATION IN COOPERATION WITH OTHER SITE USERS DURING TIMES OF SERVICE OR MAINTENANCE OF THE TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS AS NECESSARY TO AVOID POTENTIALLY HARMFUL EXPOSURE TO PERSONNEL.

Description:
CIRCUMSTANCES REQUIRING STA

BY E-MAIL DATED APRIL 17, 2019, WLAV-FM'S SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY (STA) TO OPERATE FROM A TEMPORARY LOCATION DUE TO THE LOSS OF ITS LICENSED TRANSMITTER SITE WAS EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 14, 2019 (SEE FCC FILE NO. BESTA-20190416ABU). THE WLAV-FM STA PERMITS USE OF A DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA WITH AN ERP OF 9.4 KW (DA-MAX) AT AN ANTENNA HEIGHT OF 362 METERS AMSL ON ASR 1005721. THE DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA PATTERN AUTHORIZED IN THIS STA IS A THEORETICAL HORIZONTAL PLANE ENVELOPE PATTERN.

ON JUNE 17, 2019, THE APPLICANT RECEIVED A CONSTRUCTION PERMIT (FCC FILE NO. BPH-20190501AAA) TO PERMANENTLY RELOCATE TO THE TRANSMITTER SITE AUTHORIZED IN THE CURRENT STA. THE APPLICANT PROPOSES HEREIN TO SLIGHTLY MODIFY THE CURRENT STA TO SPECIFY THE TECHNICAL FACILITY AUTHORIZED IN THE OUTSTANDING CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AT A REDUCED ERP SO THAT THE TEMPORARY FACILITY'S PREDICTED 1.0 MV/M SERVICE CONTOUR WILL REMAIN WHOLLY WITHIN THE LICENSED WLAV-FM 1.0 MV/M SERVICE CONTOUR (SEE ATTACHED COVERAGE MAP LABELLED FIGURE 1). THE DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA PATTERN PROPOSED HEREIN IS THE MEASURED HORIZONTAL PLANE COMPOSITE PATTERN. THE ANTENNA MANUFACTURER'S REPORT OF TEST IS ATTACHED.

IT IS SUBMITTED THAT THE PROPOSED MODIFICATION OF THE WLAV-FM STA WILL BETTER REPRESENT THE EXACT TECHNICAL FACILITY THAT WLAV-FM WOULD USE ON A TEMPORARY BASIS IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL WLAV-FM MAY BE LICENSED AT ITS FULL EFFECTIVE RADIATED POWER.
