Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.

Respondents: Business or other for-profit.

Number of Respondents: 100 respondents; 100 responses.

Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information collection to the OMB as a revision during this comment period to obtain the full three-year clearance from them. There is a change in the number of respondents/responses, burden hours and annual costs due to the elimination of two rule sections in this collection. Sections 90.168 and 90.425 have been removed from this information collection (IC). Section 90.168 is covered under OMB Control Number 3060-0076; and section 90.425 is covered under 3060-0599; therefore, only section 90.483 remains in this IC.

Section 90.483 contains permissible methods and requirements of interconnecting private and public systems of communications. This section allows Part 90 Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) providers to interconnect by any technically feasible means. Various subsections require that licensees obtain the consent of co-channel licensees (third party disclosure requirement) within a 75 mile radius of the interconnected base station transmitter and submit a statement (reporting requirement) to the Commission indicating that all co-channel licensees have consented to operate without the monitoring equipment.
