OMB Approval No.: 3060-0491.

Title: Section 74.991 Wireless cable application procedures.

Form No.: FCC 330/FCC 304.

Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection.

Respondents: Business or other for-profit.

Number of Respondents: 100.

Estimated Hours Per Response: 4.5 hours (0.5 respondent/4 hours attorney).

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Cost to Respondents: $116,240.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 50 hours.

Needs and Uses: Section 74.991 requires that a wireless cable application be filed on FCC Form 330 (3060-0062), Sections I and V, with a complete Form 494 appended. The application must include a cover letter clearly indicating that the application is for a wireless cable entity to operate on ITFS channels. The applicant must also, within 30 days of filing its application give local public notice in a newspaper. The specific data that must be included in the newspaper publication is contained in Section 74.991(c). The notice must be published twice a week for two consecutive weeks. The data is used by FCC staff to insure that proposals to operate a wireless cable system on ITFS channels do not impair or restrict any reasonably foreseeable ITFS use. The data is also used to insure that applicants are qualified to become a Commission licensee and that proposals do not cause interference.

OMB Approval No.: 3060-0490.

Title: Section 74.902 Frequency assignments.

Form No.: FCC 330/FCC 327.

Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection.

Respondents: Business or other for-profit.

Number of Respondents: 5.

Estimated Hours Per Response: 0.5 hours.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Cost to Respondents: $0.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2.5 hours.

Needs and Uses: Section 74.902 dictates that when a point-to-point ITFS station on the E and F MDS channels is involuntarily displaced by an MDS applicant, that the MDS applicant files the appropriate application for suitable alternative spectrum. The applications that would be used would be the FCC 327 (3060-0055) and the Form 330 (3060-0062). The burdens for these involuntarily displaced ITFS stations are included in the estimates for the FCC 327 and FCC 330. Additionally, Section 74.902(i) requires that a copy of this application be served on the ITFS licensee to be moved. The data will be used by the ITFS licensee to oppose the involuntary migration if the proposal would not provide comparable ITFS service and to ensure that the public interest is served.

OMB Control No: 3060-0939.

Needs and Uses: Commercial Mobile Radio Service carriers and Public Safety Answering Points who can't agree on the choice of enhanced 911 transmission means and related technologies may ask the Commission to assist in reaching an accord. The requested information will be used by the Commission to enable it to fully participate in negotiations.
