6 GHz Microwave NOI Released

On August 3, the FCC adopted an NOI examining frequencies between 3.7 GHz and 24 GHz (“Mid-Band”) to begin the process of determining whether spectrum in this range can be made available for wireless broadband use, focusing on potential opportunities in bands allocated for exclusive non-federal use and for shared federal and non-federal use. While recognizing that there are approximately 27,000 6 GHz microwave licenses, the NOI none-theless asks whether there is potential for additional flexible wireless broadband use in the 5.925-6.425 GHz band. EWA believes this will be a difficult band to share but notes that the no one group is escaping a request to share in this NOI. Government and non-government entities alike are included. Comments are due on October 2; Reply Comments are due November 1. (HG Call sign E150095; GN 17-183)
