Title: Collection for the Prevention or Elimination of Interference and for the Reconfiguration of the 800 MHz Band.

Estimated Annual Burden: 6,269 responses; 4.5104 hours per response; 28,276 hours total per year.

Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission will work with respondents to ensure that their concerns regarding the confidentiality of any proprietary or public safety-sensitive information are resolved in a manner consistent with the Commission's rules. See 47 CFR 0.459.

Needs and Uses: The information sought will assist 800 MHz licensees in preventing or resolving interference and enable the Commission to implement its rebanding program.

The Commission's overarching objective in this proceeding is to eliminate interference to public safety communications.
