See ET Docket No. 00-258, Order, 70 FR 61747 (October 26, 2005). This information will assist the Commission in determining the scope of the new Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) entrants' relocation obligations; also, reliable public data on each incumbent BRS system that would be subject to the relocation is essential well in advance of the planned auction of the 2150-2155 MHz band next year.
The Commission will, after the 60 day comment period, submit this new information collection request to OMB in order to obtain the full three-year clearance from the OMB.Start Signature
