FCC 22.601 Revised as of December 4, 2012
Goto Year:2011 |
§ 22.601 Existing microwave stations licensed under this part.
Existing microwave stations (2110-2130 and 2160-2180 MHz) licensed
under this part (pursuant to former rules) are subject to the
transition rules in § 22.602. No new microwave systems will be
authorized under this part.
(a) Coordination required. Before filing applications for authority to
modify existing stations on these channels or major amendments to such
applications, carriers must coordinate the planned channel usage, using
the procedure outlined in § 22.150, with affected parties in this radio
service and the Point-to-Point Microwave Service and the Multipoint
Distribution Service. Affected parties are licensees and other
applicants with previously filed pending applications whose stations
could affect or be affected by the proposed modification of the
existing station in terms of interference.
(b) System parameters. In designing a system modification, the
applicant must select sites, equipment and channels that will avoid
harmful interference to other users. All parties must cooperate fully
and make reasonable efforts to resolve technical problems and conflicts
that may inhibit the most effective and efficient use of the radio
spectrum; however, a party receiving notification is not obligated to
suggest changes or re-design a proposal in cases involving conflicts.
The applicant must identify in the application all parties with which
the technical proposal was coordinated. In the event that technical
problems are not resolved or if an affected party does not respond to
coordination efforts within 30 days after notification, an explanation
must be contained in the application. Where technical conflicts are
resolved by an agreement between the parties that requires special
procedures to reduce the likelihood of harmful interference (such as
the use of artificial site shielding), or would result in a reduction
of quality or capacity of either system, the details thereof must be
contained in the application.
(c) Bandwidth. Applicants must request the minimum emission bandwidth
necessary. The FCC does not authorize bandwidths larger than 800 kHz
under this part.
