FCC Reminds on Wave 4 800 MHz Configuration Dates (12/29)
Monday, January 01, 2007 | Comments
The FCC announced that the 800 MHz band reconfiguration process for NPSPAC channels will start Feb. 1 in the NPSPAC regions assigned to Wave 4. The three-month period during which NPSPAC 800 MHz licensees have the option of negotiating on a voluntary basis will end April 30. The three-month mandatory negotiation period will end July 31. The FCC noted that relocation channel assignments for some Wave 4 licensees may be dependent on the resolution of ongoing discussions between the U.S. government and Mexico and Canada regarding allocation of channels in border areas. The FCC said Wave 4 licensees within the border areas should commence negotiations and planning to the extent that such activities are not dependent on receipt of relocation frequency assignments. If licensees do not receive channel assignments from the TA within the negotiation or mediation period for this wave, they may submit a request for extension to the TA as needed, and the TA shall either act on the request or refer it to Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB). The FCC also said it is freezing the filing of 800 MHz applications for NPSPAC channels in Wave 4. The freeze applies to stations located in all of the NPSPAC regions assigned to Wave 4 and to stations within 70 miles of the borders of the Wave 4 licensees.
