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

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:
ENVIRONMENTAL

THE PROPOSED OPERATION WAS EVALUATED FOR HUMAN EXPOSURE TO RF ENERGY USING THE PROCEDURES OUTLINED IN THE COMMISSIONS OET BULLETIN NUMBER 65. USING RECENTLY REVISED FM MODEL PROGRAM UNDER TYPE 2, OPPOSED 'V' DIPOLE TYPE, THE MAXIMUM CALCULATED SIGNAL DENSITY NEAR THE TOWER AT TWO METERS ABOVE GROUND LEVEL ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE PROPOSED FACILITY IS 4.067 W/CM2 AT 10 METERS, WHICH IS 2.034 PERCENT OF THE GENERAL POPULATION/UNCONTROLLED MAXIMUM PERMITTED EXPOSURE LIMIT. THIS IS WELL BELOW THE FIVE PERCENT THRESHOLD LIMIT DESCRIBED IN 1.1307(B) REGARDING SITES WITH MULTIPLE EMITTERS, WHICH EXCLUDES APPLICANT FROM RESPONSIBILITY FOR TAKING ANY CORRECTIVE ACTION IN AREAS WHERE THE PROPOSALS CONTRIBUTION IS LESS THAN FIVE PERCENT.

THE APPLICANT WILL SEE THAT SIGNS ARE POSTED IN THE VICINITY OF THE TOWER, WARNING OF POTENTIAL RADIO FREQUENCY HAZARDS AT THE SITE. THE APPLICANT WILL COOPERATE WITH OTHER USERS OF THE TOWER TO REDUCE POWER OF THE FACILITY, OR DISCONTINUE OPERATION, AS NECESSARY TO LIMIT HUMAN EXPOSURE TO LEVELS LESS THAN SPECIFIED BY THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION SHOULD ANYONE BE REQUIRED TO CLIMB THE TOWER FOR MAINTENANCE OR INSPECTION.

Exhibit 4
Description:
EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES

STATION KRTK, HERMANN, MISSOURI IS BROADCASTING AT REDUCED POWER BECAUSE THE HIGHER POWER TRANSMITTER USED BY THE PRIOR LICENSEE WAS NOT AVAILABLE AND, CONSEQUENTLY, STATION KLUQ HAD TO OBTAIN A LESSER POWER TRANSMITTER FOR TEMPORARY USE.

THE LICENSEE RECENTLY RECEIVED FAA APPROVAL FOR A NEW 465 FT. TOWER. THE SECTION 106 ENVIRONMENT REPORT HAS ALSO BEEN COMPLETED AND SUBMITTED TO THE FCC. UPON RECEIPT OF THE NEW ANTENNA STRUCTURE REGISTRATION (ASR) NUMBER, THE LICENSEE WILL IMMEDIATELY FILE A MINOR MODIFICATION APPLICATION TO RELOCATE TO THE NEW TOWER SITE. CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW FACILITY WILL BEGIN IMMEDIATELY UPON GRANT OF THE FCC CONSTRUCTION PERMIT.

WITH FCC APPROVAL OF THIS STA REQUEST, STATION KRTK WILL CONTINUE OPERATING WHILE THE STATION COMPLETES CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW FULL CLASS C2 FACILITY.
