§ 27.1216 Grandfathered E and F group EBS licenses.
(a) Except as noted in paragraph (b) of this section, grandfathered EBS
licensees authorized to operate E and F group co-channel licenses are
granted a geographic service area (GSA) on July 19, 2006. The GSA is
the area bounded by a circle having a 35 mile radius and centered at
the station's reference coordinates, and is bounded by the chord(s)
drawn between intersection points of that circle and those of
respective adjacent market, co-channel licensees.
(b) If there is more than 50 percent overlap between the calculated GSA
of a grandfathered EBS license and the protected service area of a
co-channel BRS license, the licensees shall not be immediately granted
a geographic service area. Instead, the grandfathered EBS license and
the co-channel BRS licensee must negotiate in good faith to reach a
solution that accommodates the communication needs of both licensees.
If the co-channel licensees reach a mutually agreeable solution on or
before October 17, 2006, then the GSA of each co-channel license shall
be as determined pursuant to the agreement of the parties. If a
mutually agreeable solution between co-channel licensees is not reached
on or before October 17, 2006, then each co-channel licensee shall
receive a GSA determined pursuant to paragraph (a) of this section and
