SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the BRS/EBS Fourth Memorandum Opinion and Order, released on March 20, 2008 (FCC 08-83) and published in the Federal Register on May 8, 2008, 73 FR 26032, the Commission revised its rules and policies governing the licensing of the Educational Broadband Service (EBS) and the Broadband Radio Service (BRS) in the 2495-2690 MHz (2.5 GHz) band). The Commission required licensees to provide the geographic coordinates, the height above ground level of the center of radiation for each transmit and receive antenna, and the date transmissions commenced for each of the base stations in its geographic service area (GSA) within 30 days of receipt of a request from a co-channel, neighboring BRS/EBS licensee. This information will be used to prevent harmful interference to licensees' BRS/EBS operations. This interference protection requirement is a revision to the previously approved information collection OMB 3060-1094, and implements § 27.1221(f) of the Commission's rules as published in the Federal Register on May 8, 2008.
