Exhibits
Exhibit 1
Description:
JUSTIFICATION

THE ELECTRIC POWER SUPPLY TO THE STATION'S TRANSMITTER SITE IS UNRELIABLE AND HAS FAILED, LEAVING THE STATION WITHOUT POWER TO OPERATE. WE ARE NOT CERTAIN OF THE EXACT FAILURE DATE, AND OPERATIONS WERE INTERMITTENT BEFORE THEN, BUT WE BELIEVE THE STATION WENT DARK FULL TIME ON OR ABOUT SEPTEMBER 23, 2006.

AN APPLICATION IS BEING PREPARED AND WILL BE FILED SHORTLY FOR A MINOR CHANGE TO MOVE TO A NEW SITE. AUTHORITY IS REQUESTED TO REMAIN SILENT FOR SIX MONTHS UNTIL THE CONSTRUCTION PERMIT IS GRANTED AND CONSTRUCTION AT THE NEW SITE IS COMPLETED. AN STA MAY BE REQUESTED (BUT IN A SEPARATE FILING FROM THIS ONE) TO OPERATE WITH TEMPORARY FACILITIES AT THE NEW SITE.
