The WTB had asked for comment on a waiver request from the company providing security, maintenance, and other services at the new stadium where the Las Vegas Raiders are scheduled to begin playing in the Fall of 2020. The applicant has requested three Guard Band Channels, which are not yet available because Las Vegas is within the buffer zone beyond the Mexican Border Region which has been subject to an FCC freeze since 2013.

EWA submitted comments urging the Commission to expeditiously grant the relief requested. Supporting comments were also filed by the NFL. 




The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced in a Public Notice the postponement of certain dates and deadlines for participation in Auction 105, the auction of Priority Access Licenses for the 3550-3650 MHz band, the band allocated for the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). The Commission cited the need to protect the health and safety of FCC staff and to provide parties with additional time to prepare for the auction, given the COVID-19 pandemic.

On March 23, the FCC denied a Petition for Reconsideration filed by the Nevada State Parks Division which sought reinstatement of its license to operate under call sign WQYH709 or a waiver of FCC rules in order to complete construction of the facilities authorized under the license.

At its February 27 meeting, the FCC approved an approach to consolidating satellite use of C-Band that will allow an auction of 280 MHz of this mid-band spectrum for terrestrial wireless. The FCC proposed rules to allow increased power on unlicensed TV whitespace (TVWS) to address lack of rural broadband coverage and proposed Rural Digital Opportunity Fund auction procedures, another initiative intended to expand rural broadband service. 



On February 27, the FCC announced fines totaling more than $200M against the four nationwide carriers for selling access to customer location information without taking reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to that information.
