Recent News


EWA applauds the FCC for granting a waiver request by Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend, LLC (Flint Hills) to use three UHF Public Safety (PS) Pool channels. Flint Hills, which operates one of the largest oil refineries in the United States, sought these channels only after exhausting all options for Industrial/Business (I/B) Pool spectrum and after ensuring that its system design and operations would limit the potential for interference.


Because of the recent shutdown of the federal government, the FCC extended to February 15 the Comment deadline for the NPRM proposing to allow unlicensed use in the 5.925-7.125 GHz (6 GHz) band while ensuring that the licensed services operating in the spectrum do not encounter interference and continue to function. Several industry organizations expressed concern about how out thousands of microwave links are expected to share spectrum with unlicensed broadband devices.


Iota Communications, Inc. filed an opposition to the Land Mobile Communications Council (LMCC) Petition for Reconsideration regarding the FCC’s decision to use an F(50,10) interference contour when coordinating adjacent 800 MHz channels separated by 12.5 kHz.


The FCC continues to take a hard line on requests from Public Safety entities for extensions or waivers of construction deadlines for Part 22 VHF/UHF channels. On February 4, they denied the request from the State of South Dakota, but allowed the state to keep what it had constructed rather than terminate licenses in their entirety.  (DA 19-41)
