Estimated Time Per Response: .50 to 4 hours.

This will allow licensees to meet their financial obligations and ensure rapid provision for the 218-219 MHz service to the public.

The information reporting requirements in WT Docket No. 98-168, Report and Order, will be used to advise the Commission for the option chosen by the Eligible Licensees.

In addition, this information will allow the Commission to offer the licenses returned under the Amnesty and Prepayment options in a subsequent auction.
