The FCC has released a report on its investigation into the preparation for and response to Hurricane Michael.


Pastor Tito Paul received a Notice of Unlicensed Operation from the Enforcement Bureau for operating an unlicensed FM station from a multi-family dwelling in Brooklyn, New York. 



The Rose Tree Fire Company No. 1 probably would not have had to wait five years for a waiver of the T-Band freeze to increase its antenna height from 19 to 47 meters if it had asked the FCC for a status update at some earlier point. The waiver was granted without issue, as it should have been, although the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau did condition it on capping the licensee’s future relocation expense reimbursement at the cost it would have incurred for replicating its pre-modification coverage.


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.

The Frequency Advisory Committees eligible to coordinate the 800 MHz spectrum have signed an updated Memorandum of Agreement that:
  • Changed the date on which pre-coordination will begin to May 16; 
  • Limits the number of channels requested per application to five;
  • Establishes the order of applications through a date and time stamp; and
  • Defines a review process, which will take place from May 17 to July 18, to identify and resolve instances of mutual exclusivity. 

On April 22, AT&T, Verizon, and Comsearch filed a joint proposal for authorized unlicensed use in this band while “requiring rigorous technical analyses and adopting robust protections for licensed incumbent operations.” That proposal now has been endorsed by the Fixed Wireless Communications Coalition, one of the more adamant opponents of unlicensed use. Others continue to caution the FCC about potential interference, but it seems highly likely that the FCC will proceed with its proposal.
