On January 31, the FCC Enforcement Bureau issued a Notice of Unlicensed Operation to Barnstable High School (“School”) for operating equipment on PLMR, Family Radio Service (FRS), and General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) channels without licenses, without eligibility for GMRS and while using equipment not certified for FRS. The FCC ordered Barnstable to immediately discontinue and not resume operations and to respond to the FCC in 10 days.

UTC and WISPA jointly requested a waiver to extend the deadline for completing the transition of grandfathered operations in the 3650-3700 MHz band to the new CBRS rules. The transition period is tied to the grant and expiration date of individual licenses and ends between April 17, 2020 and January 8, 2023. The waiver request asks that all grandfathered licenses be given until January 8, 2023, to complete the transition. It argues that more time is needed because the recent rule changes and equipment availability issues make the current deadlines onerous.

Mobile Communications America Fined for Transfer of Control and Operation Violations

01/15/2019

As a result of a partial government shutdown, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) suspended most operations on January 3, 2019, and will remain closed until funding is restored. A small staff remains at work to address emergency situations – and to handle auction-related matters such as the ongoing “Spectrum Frontiers” auctions. The Commissioners’ offices will remain open as they have a separate funding source. So new Commissioner Geoffrey Starks, who finally was confirmed along with the reconfirmation of Commissioner Carr, will have a relatively quiet break-in period.

01/15/2019

Filing deadlines that pass during the period of suspension, including January 3, will be extended automatically and due on the second day that operations resume. For example, if funding were restored on a Monday, the FCC would resume operations on Tuesday and filings would be due on Wednesday. The filing extension applies only to due dates that pass during the shutdown period. The FCC is not automatically extending any deadlines that fall after operations have resumed but will consider whether to do so on a case-by-case basis.
