As an outcome of the FCC’s “Mid-Band” (3.7-24 GHz) Notice of Inquiry (NOI), the FCC on July 12 adopted an NPRM to consider various proposals for more intensive use (“Intensive use = 5G/Broadband) of the 3.7–4.2 GHz band, while providing appropriate protection for incumbent fixed microwave links and Satellite Service earth stations. The NPRM proposes to add a mobile allocation to the entire 500 MHz of spectrum and, considers allowing further point-to-multipoint fixed use in some portion of the band. Comments and Replies will be due 60 and 90 days after Federal Register publication.

In Comments filed earlier this month, EWA maintained its support for co-equal eligibility of and frequency coordination options for Public Safety and B/ILT entities in this band, while opposing commercial access. EWA also took the opportunity to suggest that with its focus on consumer-oriented offerings, the FCC appears to have lost sight of the important operations conducted on private land mobile radio (PLMR) systems that support America’s way of life and the economy in general.

The Fixed Wireless Communications Coalition (FWCC) continues to lobby the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), challenging the use of unlicensed devices in the 6 GHz microwave band as proposed by Apple, Google et al coalition, without further evidence that interference can be avoided.

It is not particularly accurate to state that there has been a successful negotiation between the national carriers and their primary advocate versus those parties including EWA who suggested that just a few Priority Access Licenses (PALs) based on census tracts would promote greater spectrum access. After all, it makes no sense for smaller communication providers and business enterprises to acquire huge swaths of geography better suited for national carriers during a 3.5 GHz auction.

In an Order released July 24, the FCC denied an application and request for waiver from the County of Union, New Jersey. The County had sought a waiver to operate in the TV Channel 19 band at a location further than 80 kilometers from the center of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Union sought this added capacity because it plans to control dispatch operations of call sign WPIG291, assigned to the Borough of Roselle, New Jersey. In addition, Union sought to add mobile units to an existing license and sought a waiver of the T-Band freeze in order to acquire a new license in that band.

Globalstar recently filed a Petition asking the FCC to initiate a proceeding that would re-evaluate spectrum sharing between licensed Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) and outdoor Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) devices operating in the 5150-5250 MHz band.
