Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
A large volume of VHF and UHF and microwave communications are necessary for operational, security and video production purposes during this eighth Formula One Automobile Race at the 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 short range or very short range video production and for operational communications. Sufficient frequencies for this purpose cannot be obtained through the Commissions licensing process, though the applicant 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 virtually identical to those granted in 2012 through 2018 for this event.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Operational, security, support and video production communications in support of and for news reporting of Formula One United States Grand Prix automobile Race in Austin, Texas. Please see attached narrative.
