Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Broadcast Sports, Inc is a video production company which provides wireless audio and video for broadcast, satellite broadcast and cablecast of sporting and other events. Broadcast Sports, Inc. has certain private wireless and LTTS licenses for this purpose. However, the spectrum demands in and near major cities such as Ponta Verda, Flordia, and the limited spectrum for these events make it necessary to make coordinated, temporary use of additional frequencies in the low microwave range. Such is necessary to have sufficient video relay from RF camera personnel, directors, administrative personnel at numerous locations at these events. In this case, The Players Championship is a major golf event, televised worldwide. Additional channels are critical in order to have video coverage at each hole of the tournament. See narrative attachment.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  To provide sufficient video paths for communications for RF cameras at each part of this golf tournament for video production of this televised golf event.
