FCC Partially Grants Construction Petition from Colorado County
Wednesday, November 06, 2019 | Comments

The FCC granted a petition filed by El Paso County, Colorado, in part and denied it in part. The commission dismissed a request for extension of time to construct.

The petition for reconsideration concerned the partial termination of its license for call sign WPTQ260 for failure to timely construct. The construction deadline for call sign WPTQ260 was April 10.

In May, El Paso filed the petition, which stated that it timely constructed locations three and four on its license but that it failed to file the requisite notice of construction for these two locations. El Paso also stated that it had not constructed location six on its license by the construction deadline because of connectivity issues and requested an extension of time until July 15 to construct location six. El Paso later advised the FCC that location six was constructed and operational as of Aug. 1.

The FCC said that if El Paso desires to continue to operate on the frequencies previously authorized for location six under call sign WPTQ260, it must file a properly coordinated application for license.

The FCC said it has no overriding policy rationale that prevents it from granting El Paso’s petition as it relates to locations three and four and noted that operations were in the furtherance of the protection of life and property.

The full order is here.
