Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
This FCC STA (File # 0548-EX-ST-2019) currently authorizes SpaceQuest S-Band operations until October 1, 2019 on the 2201 MHz/1M00G1D/2.2W (ERP) link to the RBC Signals ground station in Fairbanks, AK. The STA has provided critical short term emergency relief for its S-Band operations. An extension of SpaceQuest’s STA is requested until modification of its THEA and BRIO license applications (0019-EX-CM-2019 and 0020-EX-CM-2019) can be acted on, as it has no other means of downloading its S-Band experimental data.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Emergency downlinking of SpaceQuests S-band data to the RBC Signals ground station in Fairbanks, AK.

Information
Callsign: WJ2XNV
Class of Station: FX MO
Nature of Service: Experimental

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date: 10/01/2019
Operation End Date: 03/31/2020

Manufacturer
List below transmitting equipment to be installed (if experimental, so state) if additional rows are required, please submit equipment list as an exhibit:  
Manufacturer Model Number No. Of Units Experimental
GomSpace NanoCom A-100 1 No
GomSpace TR600 1 No

Certification
Neither the applicant nor any other party to the application is subject to a denial of Federal benefits that includes FCC benefits pursuant to Section 5301 of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, 21 U.S.C. Section 862, because of a conviction for possession or distribution of a controlled substance. The applicant hereby waives any claim to the use of any particular frequency or electromagnetic spectrum as against the regulatory power of the United States because of the prvious use of the same, whether by license or otherwise, and requests authorization in accordance with this application. (See Section 304 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.) The applicant acknowledges that all statements made in this application and attached exhibits are considered material representations, and that all the exhibits part hereof and are incorporated herein as if set out in full in this application; undersigned certifies that all statements in this application are true, complete and correct to the best of his/her knowledge and belief and are made in good faith. Applicant certifies that construction of the station would NOT be an action which is likely to have a significant environmental effect. See the Commission's Rules, 47 CFR1.1301-1.1319.
