Start Preamble


Federal Communications Commission.


Final rule; correction.


In this document the Federal Communications Commission corrects an inadvertent error that occurred when the Commission adopted final rules for the Advanced Wireless Services in the 1710-1755 MHz and 2110-2155 MHz bands, including provisions for application, licensing, operating and technical rules, and for competitive bidding. These rules were published in the Federal Register on Friday, February 6, 2004 (69 FR 5711). Specifically, the error occurred in a table to the rules concerning interference protection at certain Federal Government operations in the 1710-1755 MHz band. As a result of this correction, the table will be amended as intended by the Commission.


Effective August 27, 2008.

This is a correction to a summary of the Commission's Report and Order in WT Docket No. 02-353, FCC 03-251, adopted on October 16, 2003 and released on November 25, 2003. The Report and Order adopted licensing, technical, and competitive bidding rules to govern the use of the spectrum at 1710-1755 MHz and 2110-2155 MHz, which had previously been allocated for advanced wireless services, in a manner that would enable service providers to put this spectrum to use for any purpose consistent with its allocation.

Need for Correction

As published, the final rules contain an error in § 27.1134 in Table 1. The Commission inadvertently omitted the abbreviation for the word kilometers (km) after the category heading `Radius of Operation' in Table 1: Protected Department of Defense Facilities. This correction restores the information that was inadvertently omitted.
