It’s Not My Shed!
On September 26, the FCC issued a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture of $144,344 jointly against the operator of a pirate radio station in Miami, Florida and against the couple who provided the pirate operator free access and utilities to a shed from which he operated his illegal radio station. (FCC 17-127; EB-FIELDSCR-13-00012949)

Unless it’s the discovery of yet another pirate radio station which receives quick justice from the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) Enforcement Bureau, spectrum policy and management decisions take a while to come to fruition, a couple of years minimum in any event. You can imagine our interest, then, when both FCC Chairman Pai and Julius Knapp, Chief of the Office of Engineering & Technology publicly mentioned during the same week no less that broadband opportunities may be available at 900 MHz. It’s progress, slow progress perhaps, but progress nevertheless.

Introduced this past February, H.R. 5085 (“Don’t Break Up the T-Band Act”) proposes to rescind the repurposing of the 470-512 MHz band that would eliminate all kinds of spectrum planning threats and hassles for both Public Safety and Business/Industrial Land Transportation (B/ILT) incumbents. This legislation currently has 19 cosponsors, but 219 would be better, and having a companion bill introduced in the Senate remains a crucial requirement.

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.
