Exhibit 13
Description:
PURPOSE OF APPLICATION

THE APPLICANT HOLDS A LICENSE FOR A DIGITAL COMPANION FACILITY ON CHANNEL 27 (FCC FILE NO. BLDTL-20071003ABK). THE COMPANION CHANNEL LICENSE WILL BE SUBMITTED FOR CANCELLATION UPON COMPLETION OF CONSTRUCTION AND LICENSING OF THE PROPOSED INSTANT DIGITAL FLASH-CUT FACILITY.

AS INDICATED IN THE ATTACHED INTERFERENCE ANALYSIS EXHIBIT, THE INSTANT APPLICATION FACILITY COMPLIES WITH ALL DOMESTIC INTERFERENCE PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS. THE ELEVATION PATTERN DATA FOR THE PROPOSED TLP-12B ANTENNA WERE EMPLOYED IN THE ANALYSIS. THE PROPOSED ANTENNA HAS 1.0 DEGREE OF ELECTRICAL BEAM TILT. THE ELEVATION PATTERN DATA WERE UPLOADED TO EXHIBIT 12 OF THE INSTANT APPLICATION.

AS INDICATED IN THE CANADIAN COORDINATION CONTOUR MAP EXHIBIT, THERE WILL BE NO OVERLAP OF THE 24.9 DBU F(50,10) INTERFERING CONTOUR WITHIN CANADIAN TERRITORY. THEREFORE, COORDINATION OF THIS PROPOSAL WITH CANADA IS NOT NECESSARY.

IT IS NOTED THAT AN EXISTING TOWER WILL BE EMPLOYED, WHICH IS LOCATED 2.6 KM FROM AM BROADCAST STATION WSBT, SOUTH BEND, IN (960 KHZ). HOWEVER, THE INSTANT PROPOSAL WILL NOT RESULT IN ANY CHANGE IN THE STRUCTURE HEIGHT. ALSO, AN EXISTING ANTENNA WILL BE REPLACED WITH NO CHANGE IN TRANSMISSION LINE. THEREFORE, THERE WILL BE NO CHANGE IN THE ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENT WITH RESPECT TO AM BROADCAST STATION WSBT.
