Title: Section 101.17, Performance Requirements for the 38.6-40.0 GHz Frequency Band.
Form No.: N/A.
Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
Respondents: Business or other for-profit, not-for-profit institutions, Federal government, and state, local or tribal government.
Number of Respondents: 195.
Estimated Time Per Response: 2 hours.

Needs and Uses: The Commission is submitting this information collection to OMB as a revision in order to obtain the full three-year clearance from them. The Commission revised this collection by eliminating FCC Forms 415/415T. Those reporting requirements have been incorporated into FCC Form 601 under OMB Control Number 3060-0798. The Commission also removed Section 101.103 because it is approved under a separate OMB Control Number 3060-1023. The only remaining rule section in this information collection is Section 101.17.
Section 101.17 requires all 38.6-40.0 GHz band licensees must demonstrate substantial service at the time of license renewal. A licensee's substantial service showing should include, but not be limited to, the following information for each channel for which they hold a license, in each EA or portion of EA covered by their license, in order to qualify for renewal of that license. The information provided will be judged by the Commission to determine whether the licensee is providing service which rises to the level of “substantial”. (1) A description of the 38.6-40.0 GHz band licensee's current service in terms of geographic coverage; (2) a description of the 38.6-40.0 GHz band licensee's current service in terms of population served, as well as any additional service provided during the license term; and (3) a description of the 38.6-40.0 GHz band licensee's investments in its system(s) (type of facilities constructed and their operational status is required). Any 38.6-40.0 GHz band licensees adjudged not to be providing substantial service will not have their licenses renewed.Start Signature
