Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information collection to OMB as a revision during this comment period to obtain the full three-year clearance from them. Under Section 1.929(c)(1) of the Commission's rules, any increase in the composite interference contour (CIC) of a site-based licensee in the Paging and Radiotelephone Service, Rural Radiotelephone Service, or 800 MHz Specialized Mobile Radio Service is considered a major modification of a license that requires prior Commission approval.
However, on February 22, 2005, the Commission released a Report and Order in WT Docket No. 03-130 (70 FR 19293), in which it amended section 1.929(c)(1), to specify that expansion of a composite interference contour of a site-based licensee in the Paging and Radiotelephone Service—as well as the Rural Radiotelephone Service and 800 MHz Specialized Mobile Radio Service—over water on a secondary, non-interference basis should be classified as a minor (rather than major) modification of a license. Such reclassification has eliminated the filing requirements associated with these license modifications, but requires site-based licensees to provide the geographic area licensee (on the same frequency) with the technical and engineering information necessary to evaluate the site-based licensee's operations over water. The need for this collection is to enable the geographic licensee to have technical and engineering information regarding a site-based licensee's operations over water in order to guard against unacceptable interference to its own operation(s).Start Signature
