On May 15, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai released a statement announcing that he has put a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on circulation in light of the statutory directive to auction Public Safety (PS) spectrum in this band. Consistent with his earlier plea to Congress, the Chairman stated:

EWA is compiling data about interference to T-Band systems and to certain UHF stations resulting from repacked television stations that now are operating on TV channels 14 – 20. FCC rules clearly state that TV CH 14 stations are responsible for protecting adjacent UHF Part 90 systems, a situation where aggressive filtering has proven effective in certain markets. T-Band systems are supposed to be protected from co-channel TV stations by a defined mileage separation, but that distance has not been sufficient in several markets.

On May 11, the FCC adopted an Order on Reconsideration that sets the stage for licensing of the 318 new 800 MHz interstitial channels, spectrum originally requested by EWA in a 2009 Petition for Rulemaking. As expected, the FCC rejected the LMCC request to use an F(50,50) curve as the interference contour when coordinating these channels, rather than an F(50,10) curve.

On May 13, the FCC voted unanimously to adopt a Report and Order in this proceeding. The few substantive changes from the draft Order released in April clarified aspects of the eligibility requirement for a broadband applicant. The FCC also confirmed that the freeze relaxation in the R&O did not supersede its earlier action relaxing the freeze for channels swaps that do not involve an expansion of the channel contour.

The FCC has adopted a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking authorizing standard-power and indoor low-power unlicensed operations in the 6 GHz band which will become effective on July 27. In a communication sent last week, EWA reminded its members that the license data as recorded in the ULS will be the data source for interference protection from the automated frequency coordination (AFC) systems that determine frequency availability.

06/01/2020

The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau of the FCC has advised EWA that the FCC will not provide a further extension of build-out deadlines for site-based and mobile-only wireless systems with construction dates after May 15. Licensees that will not be able to meet their deadlines must file for waiver relief individually, consistent with the FCC’s standard waiver requirements. Affected licensees were most appreciative of the FCC’s original extension.
