Mr. Ralph Lameti

Call Sign: E040469
File No.: SES-MOD-20130521-00417
Dear Mr. Lameti:
On May 21, 2013, World Religious Relief, Inc., d/b/a The Word Network (Word
Network) filed the above-captioned application to replace its A1 4.5-meter antenna,
Antenna ID A1, with a 9-meter antenna. For the reasons indicated below, we dismiss the
application as defective, without prejudice to re-filing.1
Section 25.112 of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 25.112, requires the Commission
to return, as unacceptable for filing, any earth station application that is not substantially
complete, that contains internal inconsistencies, or that does not substantially comply
with the Commission’s rules. For the reasons stated below, Word Network’s application
is inconsistent, incomplete or otherwise does not substantially comply with the
Commission’s rules.
Word Network did not submit a radiation hazard study, as required by the
underlined text included in item 28 of Form 312 and Section 1.1307(b) of the
Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 1.1307(b).
· Word Network did not submit a Schedule B, as required by Sections 25.115(a)(1)
and 25.130(a) of the Commission’s rules.2

If Word Network re-files an application in which the deficiencies identified in this letter have been
corrected, but is 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. § 25.115(a)(1) and 47 C.F.R. § 25.130(a).

Federal Communications Commission DA 13-1239

Accordingly, pursuant to Section 25.112(a)(1) of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R.
§ 25.112(a)(1), and Section 0.261 of the Commission’s rules on delegations of authority,
47 C.F.R. § 0.261, we dismiss Word Network’s application without prejudice to re-filing.
