MAIN STUDIO RULE WAIVER

LANE COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J, LANE COUNTY, OREGON (' SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J) HEREBY REQUESTS A WAIVER OF SECTION 73.1125(A) OF THE COMMISSION'S RULES TO PERMIT THE MAIN STUDIO FOR ITS NEW FM STATION KMKR(FM) [FACILITY ID 132574], OAKRIDGE, OREGON, OREGON TO BE LOCATED AT 2455 WILLAKENZIE ROAD IN EUGENE, OREGON, THE LOCATION OF THE MAIN STUDIO OF NONCOMMERCIAL EDUCATIONAL STATION KRVM(FM), EUGENE, OREGON [FACILITY ID 59340], WHICH IS ALSO LICENSED TO SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J. SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J PROPOSES TO OPERATE THE NEW STATION AS A SATELLITE STATION OF KRVM(FM). PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CALL SIGN KMKR(FM) HAS BEEN APPLIED FOR.

KRVM(FM) IS A NONCOMMERCIAL EDUCATIONAL STATION WHICH PROVIDES PACIFICA REGIONAL, NATIONAL, AND INTERNATIONAL NEWS TO THE LOWER WILLAMETTE VALLEY. KRVM, A CONTRIBUTING STATION IN THE NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO SYSTEM, ALSO PROVIDES A VARIED COMBINATION OF ALTERNATIVE MUSIC AND OTHER ENTERTAINMENT PROGRAMS. IF THIS REQUEST IS GRANTED, SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J PLANS TO EXPAND COVERAGE OF ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE SERVICE AREA OF KMKR(FM) AND TO ENCOURAGE PUBLIC SERVICE PARTICIPATION FROM THE AREA.

AS AN EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATION FUNDED BY THE STATE OF OREGON, DUE TO EVER-TIGHTENING BUDGETARY CONSTRAINTS, SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J CANNOT JUSTIFY FUNDING A SEPARATE STAFF AND STUDIO FACILITY FOR PROGRAMMING IN THE OAKRIDGE AREA AT THIS TIME. IT DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT THE OAKRIDGE AREA CAN SUPPORT AN INDEPENDENT STATION WHICH IS CAPABLE OF PROVIDING THE QUALITY OF SERVICE THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM THE KRVM(FM) STUDIOS. FOR THESE REASONS, SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J RESPECTFULLY SUBMITS THAT THE PROPOSED CONSOLIDATION OF THE MAIN STUDIO FOR KMKR(FM) WITH THAT OF KRVM(FM) IN EUGENE WOULD BE CONSISTENT WITH THE OPERATION OF KMKR(FM) IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST. APPROVAL OF SUCH OPERATION BY THE COMMISSION HERE WOULD BE CONSISTENT WITH ITS DISPOSITION OF SIMILAR REQUESTS BY OTHER SIMILARLY SITUATED NONCOMMERCIAL EDUCATIONAL LICENSEES.

SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J WILL MAINTAIN A TOLL-FREE (800) TELEPHONE NUMBER SO THAT RESIDENTS OF THE KMKR(FM) SERVICE AREA WILL BE ABLE TO CONTACT THE STUDIO WITHOUT CHARGE. IN ADDITION, SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J WILL ACTIVELY SOLICIT COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT FROM THE KMKR(FM) SERVICE AREA. FOR EXAMPLE, SCHOOL DISTRICT 41 WILL SOLICIT AND INVITE A LOCAL RESIDENTS TO JOINT A JOINT KRVM/KMKR ADVISORY COMMITTEE, WHICH WILL FORMULATE AND EXCHANGE IDEAS ON PROGRAMMING AND STATION DIRECTION. WITH THE ADDITION OF AN ADDITIONAL STL LINK FROM THE KRVM(FM) STUDIOS TO THE CURRENT TRANSMITTER SITE, THE OAKRIDGE STATION COULD BE PROGRAMMED SEPARATELY. AS FUNDS BECOME AVAILABLE FOR THIS ADDITIONAL SERVICE, SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J PLANS TO PROVIDE SOME SEPARATE PROGRAMMING TO OAKRIDGE THAT IS RESPONSIVE TO THE CURRENT NEEDS OF THE AREA.

IN SUM, THE GRANT OF THIS REQUESTED WAIVER WILL FACILITATE THE PROVISION OF HIGH QUALITY AND DIVERSE PUBLIC RADIO PROGRAMMING TO THE OAKRIDGE AREA AND A LEVEL OF PUBLIC SERVICE THAT WOULD OTHERWISE BE UNATTAINABLE DUE TO FINANCIAL CONSTRAINTS INVOLVED. BECAUSE SUCH A RESULT WOULD CLEARLY SERVE THE PUBLIC INTEREST, IT IS RESPECTFULLY REQUESTED THAT THE WAIVER BE EXPEDITIOUSLY GRANTED.LANE COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J, LANE COUNTY, OREGON (' SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J) HEREBY REQUESTS A WAIVER OF SECTION 73.1125(A) OF THE COMMISSION'S RULES TO PERMIT THE MAIN STUDIO FOR ITS NEW FM STATION KMKR(FM) [FACILITY ID 132574], OAKRIDGE, OREGON, OREGON TO BE LOCATED AT 2455 WILLAKENZIE ROAD IN EUGENE, OREGON, THE LOCATION OF THE MAIN STUDIO OF NONCOMMERCIAL EDUCATIONAL STATION KRVM(FM), EUGENE, OREGON [FACILITY ID 59340], WHICH IS ALSO LICENSED TO SCHOOL DISTRICT 4J.
