FCC Provides Clarification on 900 MHz Freeze
Wednesday, October 03, 2018 | Comments

The FCC provided clarification on how its recent freeze on new applications for the 900 MHz band would apply to certain license modifications.

In mid-September, the FCC implemented a freeze on certain applications in the 896 – 901/935 – 940 MHz band that applies to applications for new or expanded use of the 900 MHz band frequencies. The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) asked the FCC to clarify whether that freeze would apply to license modifications that added or changed locations but did not expand the currently authorized contours of the licenses.

The FCC responded to the EWA and said “applications to add or change locations are suspended only if the new location extends the station’s authorized interference contour in any direction. Locations may be added or changed if the new site does not increase the licensed contour.”
