Mississippi DOT Loses 5 Microwave Licenses
Thursday, November 15, 2018 | Comments

Mississippi Department of Transportation submitted a petition for reconsideration of the FCC placing six microwave licenses — call signs WQIL884, WQIP742, WQJK904, WQJK960, WQYA402 and WQJK961 — in termination pending status. The FCC dismissed the petition in part and granted it in part.

The commission granted the timely filed petition with respect to call sign WQJK961 and returned the license to active status.

The FCC dismissed the petition as untimely with respect to the remaining five call signs. If Mississippi desires to use its previously licensed frequencies, the agency may file new, properly coordinated applications. Moreover, if Mississippi needs to operate while its applications are being prepared and coordinated, it may file requests for special temporary authority (STA), the FCC said.

The order is here.
