Is a directional antenna (other than radar) used?   No
Exhibit submitted:   No
(a) Width of beam in degrees at the half-power point:  
(b) Orientation in horizontal plane:  
(c) Orientation in vertical plane:  
Will the antenna extend more than 6 meters above the ground, or if mounted on an existing building, will it extend more than 6 meters above the building, or will the proposed antenna be mounted on an existing structure other than a building?   Yes
(a) Overall height above ground to tip of antenna in meters:   30.00
(b) Elevation of ground at antenna site above mean sea level in meters:   170.00
(c) Distance to nearest aircraft landing area in kilometers:   16.00
(d) List any natural formations of existing man-made structures (hills, trees, water tanks, towers, etc.) which, in the opinion of the applicant, would tend to shield the antenna from aircraft: Terrain around Athens Ohio is naturally hilly, especially between transmission antenna and the Ohio University airport, KUNI. Also, there is a helo pad by nearby hospital, but shielded by roofline, tress, and hospital building.
