FCC Issues Signal Booster Registration and Consent Reminder

In a Public Notice released December 11, the FCC reminds “building owners and other non-licensee operators of Part 90 Private Land Mobile Radio (PLMR) signal boosters that they may not operate these boosters until they: (a) obtain the express written consent of the licensee(s) whose signals they would re-transmit and (b) register Class B signal boosters” with the FCC at the Part 90 Class B Signal Booster Registration & Discovery site

Failure to register risks causing harmful interference to first responders and others, and those that do not register may be subject to enforcement action.

EWA recommends that building owners and operators of these signal boosters read the Public Notice, which contains more information on the registration and consent requirements.
