Needs and Uses: In 1999, the Commission adopted a Report and Order which adopted a revised timeframe for reporting the number of mobile units placed in operation from eight months to 12 months of the grant date of their license. The radio facilities addressed in this subpart of the rules are allocated on and governed by regulations designed to award facilities on a need basis determined by the number of mobile units served by each base station. This is necessary to avoid frequency hoarding by applicants. The rule section requires licensees to report the number of mobile units on FCC Form 601.

Commission licensing personnel use the information to maintain an accurate database of frequency users. The Commission and the public use the database information in spectrum planning, interference resolution and licensing activities.
