Exhibit 1
Description:
NATURE OF AMENDMENT

THIS LICENSE APPLICATION (THE 'APPLICATION') WAS ORIGINALLY FILED ON SEPTEMBER 13, 2006. ON NOVEMBER 20, 2006, COMMISSION STAFF INFORMED THE APPLICANT THAT A CONDITION HAD BEEN INADVERTENTLY OMITTED FROM THE RELEVANT CONSTRUCITON PERMIT. SPECIFICALLY, THE PERMIT SHOULD HAVE INCLUDED A CONDITION STATING THAT 'DURING EQUIPMENT TESTS, AUTHORIZED BY SECTION 73.1610 OF THE COMMISSION'S RULES, THE PERMITTEE SHALL TAKE ADEQUATE MEASURES TO IDENTIFY AND SUBSTANTIALLY ELIMINATE OBJECTIONABLE INTERFERENCE WHICH MAY BE CAUSED TO EXISTING LAND MOBILE RADIO FACILITIES IN THE 460 TO 470 MHZ BAND.   DOCUMENTATION THAT OBJECTIONABLE INTERFERENCE WILL NOT BE CAUSED TO EXISTING LAND MOBILE RADIO FACILITIES SHALL BE SUBMITTED ALONG WITH THE REQUEST FOR PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY. PROGRAM TESTS SHALL NOT BE COMMENCED UNDER SECTION 73.1620(A) OF THE COMMISSION'S RULES AND MAY ONLY BE STARTED AFTER SPECIFIC AUTHORITY IS GRANTED BY THE COMMISSION. AN APPLICATION FOR A LICENSE MUST BE FILED WITHIN 10 DAYS AFTER THE START OF PROGRAM TESTS.' BASED ON THIS OMITTED CONDITION, FCC STAFF ASKED THE APPLICANT TO AMEND THE APPLICATION TO (1) REQUEST PROGRAM TEST AUTHORITY AND (2) DEMONSTRATE THAT THE FACILITY COMPLIES WITH FCC REQUIREMENTS CONCERNING OBJECTIONABLE INTERFERENCE TO EXISTING LAND MOBILE RADIO FACILITIES IN THE 460 TO 470 MHZ BAND.
