"What's STAs?"

Special Temporary Authority.  It allows a licensee to operate a station under certain conditions which vary from those specified on the license.  They're often issued by the FCC when licensed antenna systems are damaged or AM directional antenna system patterns are out of tolerance.  Problems with antenna systems are not always easy or quick to diagnose and/or repair, and an STA lets the station continue to broadcast while the problems are sorted out and fixed.
