FCC Announces 800 MHz EB/GB Availability

By Public Notice (PN) released April 25, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced dates and procedures for submitting applications in the 800 MHz band for Expansion Band and Guard Band (800 MHz EB/GB) channels and “Sprint-vacated” spectrum in three National Public Safety Planning Advisory Committee (NPSPAC) regions. In addition, the PN provided procedures and dates for submitting applications for 800 MHz EB/GB channels in the 21 NPSPAC regions where licensing of these channels had been deferred. The PN did not release 800 MHz EB/GB channels in all areas. EWA is unable to process any application that requests channels in unreleased areas and will return applications for licenses in the Mexican border region, Northern California, Nevada, and Arkansas.
