Recent News

As reported in a previous issue of Insider, some T-Band licensees in Dallas, Los Angeles, and New York have experienced ongoing issues with interference from television broadcasts on TV CH16. Although affected Business/Industrial Land Transportation licensees in Dallas and their representatives had a call with staff from FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) and Enforcement Bureau, no progress has been made on this issue. WTB has asked whether affected T-Band licensees could relocate.

12/06/2019

On November 26, WTB and Office of Engineering and Technology (OET) jointly announced the approval and registration of additional or updated Environmental Sensing Capability (ESC) sensor deployment and coverage plans for CommScope, Federated Wireless and Google, all of which are approved ESC operators.

During a recent membership meeting, the Land Mobile Communications Council (LMCC) resolved to pursue several issues relating to the 800 MHz band. 

12/06/2019

The LMCC has agreed to file a Petition for Rulemaking seeking rule clarification with respect to mobile-only system protection requirements and the application of the “safe harbor” tables. Specifically, to promote spectrum efficiency, the Petition will seek rule changes that would designate areas of operation beyond 80 km for mobile only systems as secondary operations. The Petition will also seek a more reasoned approach when the FCC enforces the application of the safe harbor table.

12/06/2019

In the B/ILT licensing sector, the level of applications returned by the FCC has reached a seemingly epic level which contributes to applicant frustrations, productivity costs for both the FCC and their certified frequency advisory committees, and meaningful delays in issuing licenses that encumber access to valuable spectrum.

12/06/2019

While EWA filed Comments generally supporting all moves toward further electronic FCC filing requirements, including a requirement that all parties using ULS provide an email address to be used for correspondence with the FCC, during the recent LMCC meeting, EWA expressed a willingness to consider an “opt-in” approach that would allow licensees to affirmatively request receipt of certain correspondence by mail.
