Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:

An STA is necessary because the system uses radio equipment that is not licenseable in the United States at the moment due to frequency ranges, or the race teams and international broadcasters are not licensed to use equipment at this short term, major automobile racing event.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  To facilitate the use of communications systems for operational communications. To facilitate the use of communications systems for operational communications, race team communications and broadcast operations for a major international electric automobile racing event including voice, video, and data. See the narrative and frequency coordination exhibit attached.
