Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
A large volume of microwave communications are necessary for operational and video production purposes during the eighth annual Formula One Grand Prix Automobile Race at the Circuit of the Americas race venue in Austin, Texas during the qualifying events and the race itself. Large numbers of race teams from Europe and other parts of the world will be bringing their equipment to the race track for video production and for operational communications. Sufficient frequencies for this purpose cannot be obtained through the Commissions licensing process, though the applicant, the race track owner, is a licensee of the Commission in the LP Auxiliary, LTTS and Land Mobile Radio Services. As explained in the attached narrative, this STA application is very similar to STAs granted in 2012 through 2018 for this same event. See Narrative Explanation and Frequency Coordination exhibit attached for details.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Operational, security, support, safety communications and video production communications in support of and for news reporting of Formula One United States Grand Prix automobile Race in Austin, Texas, one of the two largest automobile racing events in the United States.
