FCC Issues Notice of Proposed Rule-Making for Shared Use in 3.1 - 3.55 GHz Band
On January 22, 2020, the FCC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking: Facilitating Shared Use in the 3.1 - 3.55 GHz Band.
This notice proposes the removal of existing non-federal secondary radiolocation and amateur allocations in the 3.1 - 3.55 GHz band. In addition, it proposes the relocation of incumbent non-federal operations out of the band. This proposed rule would eliminate the non-federal radio location services and non-federal amateur allocations in the band.
This NPRM seeks comment on appropriate relocation options, the process of relocation, the transition mechanism for relocation, and potential costs. Comments are due by February 21; reply comments are due by March 23.
