Petition Asks FCC to Include Part 90 Licensees as CBRS Incumbents
Tuesday, June 04, 2019 | Comments

The FCC requested comment on a petition for reconsideration filed in the FCC’s Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) docket.

John C Gazzo, on behalf of CallComm, filed the petition, noting that the FCC didn’t include existing, licensed Part 90 land mobile radiolocation licensees as a classification in incumbent protections. Something needs to be put in place to protect all of these existing licensed operations in the 3.55 – 3.7 GHz band, he said.

“These pre-existing call signs need to be protected just as Nextel’s Part 90, 800 MHz, pre-existing call signs were protected during the 800 MHz auctions of the late 1990s and early 2000s,” the petition said. “A recently released public notice did not include these operations, and at the very least, a rebanding program similar to the 2.1 GHz AWS (Advanced Wireless Service) should be part of the conversation.”

Oppositions to the petition must be filed within 15 days of the date of publication of this public notice in the Federal Register. Replies to an opposition must be filed within 10 days after the time for filing oppositions has expired.

The public notice is here. The petition for reconsideration is here.
