800 MHz Waivers Denied for Insufficient Showing

On October 18, the WTB denied waivers from three applicants that are Specialized Mobile Radio (SMR) operators that were seeking early access to 800 MHz Sprint-vacated channels in Las Vegas, plus a waiver of the 800 MHz freeze in that region, and to two SMR applicants seeking 800 MHz channels in Keokuk, Iowa at a site that overlapped a region where EB/GB channels are not yet available. In both cases, the WTB determined that the waiver showing was insufficient to warrant relief.  (DA 17-1022 and 1023)
