   operate within the existing terms of the outstanding licenses, subject
   to renewal. Non-LMDS stations authorized pursuant to applications
   refiled no later than June 26, 1998 shall operate on an unprotected
   basis and subject to harmful interference from similarly licensed
   stations or stations licensed prior to June 30, 1997, and on a
   secondary basis to LMDS radio stations.

   (8) The maximum power for the local television transmission service in
   the 14.2-14.4 GHz band is + 45 dBW except that operations are not
   permitted within 1.5 degrees of the geostationary orbit. As of March 1,
   2005, no new LTTS operators will be licensed in the 14.2-14.4 GHz band.
   LTTS operators authorized prior to March 1, 2005 may continue to
   operate in 14.2-14.4 GHz band until their license expires; no existing
   LTTS licenses will be renewed in the 11.7-12.2 GHz band.

   (b) Communications common carriers in the Local Television Transmission
   Service may be assigned frequencies listed in § § 74.602(a), 78.18(a)(6),
   and 78.18(a)(7) of this chapter to provide service to television
   broadcast stations, television broadcast network-entities, cable system
