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 23
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.

CIRCUMSTANCES REQUIRING EXTENSION OF STA

RADIO LICENSE HOLDING CBC, LLC ('RLH CBC'), RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF ITS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORIZATION, PURSUANT TO SECTION 73.1635 OF THE RULES, AS IT CONSTRUCTS ITS NEW FACILITIES.

WLAV-FM HAS BEEN OPERATING PURSUANT TO ITS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORIZATION (STA) DUE TO THE LOSS OF ITS LICENSED TRANSMITTER SITE. SEE BSTA-20190702AEB. ON JUNE 17, 2019, RLH CBC RECEIVED A CONSTRUCTION PERMIT, BPH-20190501AAA, TO PERMANENTLY RELOCATE TO THE STA TRANSMITTER SITE. THE STA SPECIFIED A REDUCED ERP SO THAT THE TEMPORARY FACILITY'S PREDICTED 1.0 MV/M SERVICE CONTOUR WOULD REMAIN WHOLLY WITHIN THE LICENSED WLAV-FM 1.0 MV/M SERVICE CONTOUR (SEE ATTACHED COVERAGE MAP LABELLED FIGURE 1). THE DIRECTIONAL ANTENNA PATTERN IS THE MEASURED HORIZONTAL PLANE COMPOSITE PATTERN. THE ANTENNA MANUFACTURER'S REPORT OF TEST IS ATTACHED.

THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE WLAV-FM FACILITIES IS CONDITIONED ON THE GRANT OF THE WLAW(FM), MUSKEGON, MICHIGAN, MODIFIED CONSTRUCTION PERMIT APPLICATION. THE WLAW APPLICATION, 0000086872, WAS GRANTED ON DECEMBER 31, 2019, THEREFORE, RLH CBC PLANS TO BEGIN CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW WLAV-FM FACILITIES AUTHORIZED IN BPH-20190501AAA IMMEDIATELY.

ACCORDINGLY, RLH CBC REQUESTS AN EXTENSION OF ITS STA UNTIL CONSTRUCTION OF ITS NEW FACILITIES IS COMPLETED AND ITS LICENSE APPLICATION IS FILED WITH THE FCC.
