FCC Denies Private Firm’s Requested Use of VHF Interoperability Channels (2/23/15)
Monday, February 23, 2015 | Comments

The FCC denied a petition for reconsideration filed in January by the Conley Group, arguing that it is eligible to license the VHF interoperability channels under Section 90.20(a)(2)(iv)5 of the commission’s rules because it provides “emergency rescue services.”

The petition for reconsideration followed a December 2014 decision by the commission to dismiss an application filed by the Conley Group to license the five nationwide VHF interoperability channels throughout the state of Iowa.

The commission said the Conley Group failed to present new facts or changed circumstances demonstrating that grant of the petition would serve the public interest. Specifically, the Conley Group failed to establish that private security and property management firms fall within the meaning of the term “rescue squad.”

The full order is here.
