§ 24.243 The cost-sharing formula.
A PCS relocator who relocates an interfering microwave link, i.e. one

(a) RN equals the amount of reimbursement.
(b) C equals the actual cost of relocating the link. Actual relocation
costs include, but are not limited to, such items as: Radio terminal
equipment (TX and/or RX--antenna, necessary feed lines, MUX/Modems);
towers and/or modifications; back-up power equipment; monitoring or
control equipment; engineering costs (design/path survey);
installation; systems testing; FCC filing costs; site acquisition and
civil works; zoning costs; training; disposal of old equipment; test
equipment (vendor required); spare equipment; project management; prior
coordination notification under § 101.103(d) of this chapter; site
lease renegotiation; required antenna upgrades for interference
control; power plant upgrade (if required); electrical grounding
systems; Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) (if required);
alternate transport equipment; and leased facilities. C also includes
voluntarily relocating microwave incumbent's independent third party
appraisal of its compensable relocation costs and incumbent transaction
expenses that are directly attributable to the relocation, subject to a
cap of two percent of the "hard" costs involved. C may not exceed
$250,000 per link, with an additional $150,000 permitted if a new or
modified tower is required.
(c) N equals the number of PCS entities that would have interfered with
the link. For the PCS relocator, N=1. For the next PCS entity that
would have interfered with the link, N=2, and so on. In the case of a
voluntarily relocating microwave incumbent, N=1 for the first PCS
entity that would have interfered with the link. For the next PCS
entity that would have interfered with the link, N=2, and so on.
(d) Tm equals the number of months that have elapsed between the month
the PCS relocator or voluntarily relocating microwave incumbent obtains
reimbursement rights for the link and the month that the clearinghouse
notifies a later-entrant of its reimbursement obligation for the link.
A PCS relocator obtains reimbursement rights for the link on the date
that it signs a relocation agreement with a microwave incumbent. A
voluntarily relocating microwave incumbent obtains reimbursement rights
for the link on the date that the incumbent notifies the Commission
that it intends to discontinue, or has discontinued, the use of the
link, pursuant to § 101.305 of the Commission's rules.
