Description:
WDLZ-FM STA REQUEST EXPLANATION

ON AUGUST 24, 2021, THE WDLZ TRANSMITTER EXPERIENCED A FINAL TUBE FAILURE AND CAUSED AN OFF-AIR CONDITION. AN OLD TUBE, THAT WAS KEPT ON HAND FOR A SPARE, WAS INSTALLED AND THE WDLZ TRANSMITTER WAS BROUGHT BACK ON THE AIR AT REDUCED POWER ON AUGUST 25, 2021. WITHIN THE NEXT 8 HOURS, THE WDLZ TRANSMITTER EXPERIENCED MORE COMPONENT FAILURES AND THE BYRNE ACQUISITION GROUP, LLC MANAGEMENT DETERMINED THAT IT WOULD BE MORE COST EFFECTIVE, AND WOULD BETTER SERVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST, TO PURCHASE A NEW SOLID STATE TRANSMITTER RATHER THAN TO ATTEMPT TO PATCH THIS 25 YEAR OLD UNIT. THE WDLZ TRANSMITTER IS CURRENTLY ON THE AIR AT 400 WATTS OF TRANSMITTER OUTPUT POWER. WDLZ HAS ORDERED A NEW NAUTEL TRANSMITTER AND DUE TO AN INDUSTRY WIDE PARTS SHORTAGE, THE EARLIEST THAT WDLZ CAN OBTAIN THE NEW TRANSMITTER, TO DELIVER FULL LICENSED POWER OF 2,200 WATTS, IS OCTOBER 26, 2021. ONCE THE NEW TRANSMITTER ARRIVES, THE INSTALLATION AND COMMISSIONING PROCESS WILL COMMENCE. THE ANTICIPATED DATE TO HAVE WDLZ BACK TO FULL POWER IS OCTOBER 29, 2021. IN AN EFFORT TO BETTER SERVE THE COMMUNITY, WDLZ WAS ABLE TO OBTAIN A 1000 WATT LOANER TRANSMITTER, HOWEVER, THAT POWER LEVEL WILL NOT MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF FCC RULE 73.1560(B) AND WILL BE OPERATING AT REDUCED AUTHORIZED POWER. SINCE THE ANTICIPATED DATE TO RESTORE WDLZ TO FULL AUTHORIZED POWER WILL BE GREATER THAN 30 DAYS, THIS REQUEST FOR SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY IS BEING SUBMITTED AS PER FCC RULE 73.1560(D).
