FCC Denies 800 MHz ESMR Request to Renew Licenses
Tuesday, February 11, 2020 | Comments

The FCC denied a License Acquisitions (LA) request for waiver of a filing deadline and dismissed the enhanced SMR’s (ESMR) late-filed renewal applications.

The licenses authorize SMR service on an economic area (EA) basis on three megahertz of spectrum on channel block A (816 – 816.5 MHz and 861 – 861.5 MHz) in western Oklahoma, as well as Abilene, San Angelo and Amarillo, Texas. The licenses were part of a batch of 11 800 MHz ESMR Licenses LA acquired from Lone Star Wireless in July 2010. The licenses originally were held by Silver Palm Communications. In 2005, Silver Palm relocated all 11 licenses to the ESMR band, and that election was still in effect when the licenses were assigned to LA.

The commission said LA did not file a renewal application and waiver request until three and a half months after the licenses expired.

The full letter to License Acquisitions from the FCC is here.
