TA Modifies Deadlines for Border Areas (8/16)
Wednesday, August 16, 2006 | Comments
The 800 MHz Transition Administrator (TA) modified the Wave 4, Stage 1 deadline for request for planning funding (RFPF) submissions. Within Wave 4, Stage 1, there are a number of licenses with locations in the international border areas defined by the FCC that are subject to special frequency plans negotiated by the United States with the governments of Mexico and Canada. The State Department has been involved in direct discussions with Mexico and Canada. The TA continues to monitor progress and work with the FCC to evaluate the impact of the progress on the regional prioritization plan and the report and order, said Brett Haan, TA director. In the interim, any Wave 4, Stage 1 licensee receiving a frequency proposal report (FPR) on or after Aug. 1 that needs to request planning funding will have 45 calendar days from the date of the earliest FPR cover letter received to submit the RFPF. The deadline will be noted in the FPR cover letter sent by the TA. The FPR contains proposed new frequencies for those call signs that must change operating frequencies. Call signs with any locations within the FCC-defined international border areas will not receive FPRs until the revised border area band plans are finalized through the international negotiations. Call signs with locations within about 113 kilometers of the FCC border.
