Title: Public Notice—Medical Telemetry Equipment Operating in the 450-460 MHz Band.

Type of Review: New collection.

Respondents: Business or other for-profit entities.

Number of Respondents: 20.

Estimated Hours Per Response: 8.

Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping; One-time reporting requirement.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 160 hours.

Needs and Uses: The Commission released a public notice on October 20, 1999 requesting that parties operating medical telemetry equipment in the 450-460 MHz Band assist the Commission by providing certain information on their operations. Our equipment authorization records show that the majority of medical telemetry equipment operating under Part 90 are authorized in the 460-470 MHz portion of the PLMRS bands, and that very little operates in the 450-460 MHz portion of the band. We are requesting that parties operating medical telemetry equipment in the 450-460 MHz band provide certain information on their operation to the Commission. This information could help prevent serious interference problems in the future.
