1. Introduction. On February I 1, 201 1, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
(Port Authority) filed a petition for reconsideration' of a Commission action granting two applications2
for authority to operate Stations WQNE923 and WQNE927 filed by the New York Department of Health
and Mental Hygiene (Health Department). For the reasons set forth below, we grant the petition for
reconsideration in part, set aside the Health Department's authorizations to operate Stations WQNE923
and WQNE927, and return the Health Department's applications to pending status.
2. Background. At the time of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade

including microwave Stations WNEE495, WNEE496 and WPN1363.' Pending reconstruction of the
World Trade Center, the Port Authority has requested a series of consecutive waivers of the one-year
construction period and of the Commission's rules governing discontinuance of operations4 for its

'Port Authority Petition for Reconsideration (filed Feb. 11, 2011) (Petition).
