Call Sign: E860443

File No.: SES-MOD-20140604-00396

Dear Ms. Carducci:

On June 4, 2014, WKYC-TV, Inc. (WKYC-TV) filed the above-captioned application to modify

its existing license by replacing an existing antenna and changing the emission designator of an

existing signal carrier. Pursuant to Section 25.112(a) of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. §

25.112(a)(1), we dismiss the application as defective without prejudice to refiling.1

Section 25.112(a) of the Commission’s rules requires the Commission to return, as unacceptable

for filing, any application that is not substantially complete, that contains internal inconsistencies,

or that does not substantially comply with the Commission’s rules2. For the reasons set forth

below, we find the application of WKYC-TV unacceptable for filing.

WKYC-TV did not submit a radiation hazard study for the new antenna unit AVL

Technologies, model 1410K-11, proposed in the modification application, as required by

the underlined text included in question 28 of Form 312 and Section 1.1307(b) of the

Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 1.1307(b).

WKYC-TV’s response to question 26 of Form 312, Type of Earth Station Facility, was

transmit/receive; however, WKYC-TV did not provide the receive frequency band in

item E43/44 of FCC Form 312 - Schedule B.

WKYC-TV did not provide the Antenna gain of Transmit/Receive information in item

E41/42 of FCC Form 312 - Schedule B.


If WKYC-TV refiles an application in which the deficiencies identified in this letter have been corrected

but otherwise identical to the one dismissed, it need not pay an application fee. See 47 C.F.R. § 1.1111(d).


47 C.F.R. § 25.112(a)


Federal Communications Commission DA 14-961

WKYC-TV did not provide the minimum antenna elevation angle as 5 degrees in items

E57 and E59 of FCC Form 312 - Schedule B and pursuant to 47 C.F.R. § 25.205(a).

Accordingly, pursuant to Section 25.112(a)(1) of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R.

§ 25.112(a)(2), and Section 0.261 of the Commission’s rules on delegations of authority, 47

C.F.R. § 0.261, we dismiss the application of WKYC-TV, Inc. without prejudice to refiling.
