  § 27.1236   Self-transitions.

   Link to an amendment published at  84 FR 57367 , Oct. 25, 2019.

   (a) If an Initiation Plan is not filed on or before January 21, 2009
   for a BTA, BRS and EBS licensees in that BTA may self-transition by
   relocating to their default channel locations specified in § 27.5(i)(2)
   and complying with § § 27.50(h), 27.53, 27.55 and 27.1221.

   (b) To self-transition, a BRS or EBS licensee must:

   (1) Notify the Secretary of the Commission on or before April 21, 2009
   that it will self-transition (see paragraph (a) of this section);

   (2) Send a Self-Transition Notification (see paragraph (c) of this
   section) to other BRS and EBS licensees in the BTA where the
   self-transitioning licensee's GSA geographic center point is located
   that it is self-transitioning;

   (3) Notify other licensees whose GSAs overlap with the
   self-transitioning licensee that it is self-transitioning.

   (4) Address interference concerns with other BRS and EBS licensees in
   the BTA that are also self-transitioning;

   (5) File a modification application with the Commission, and

   (6) Complete the self-transition on or before October 20, 2010.

   (c) Self-Transition Notification. The Self-Transition Notification must
   include the EBS licensee's full name, postal mailing address, contact
   person, e-mail address, and phone and fax numbers. A self-transitioning
   EBS licensee must provide the following information to all BRS and EBS
   licensees located in the BTA where the self-transitioning licensees GSA
   geographic center point is located:

   (1) The location (by street address and by geographic coordinates) of
   every constructed EBS receive site that, as of the date the
   Self-Transition Notification is sent, is entitled to a replacement
   downconverter (see § 27.1233(a)). The response must:

   (i) Specify whether the downconverting antenna is mounted on a
   structure attached to the building or on a free-standing structure;

   (ii) Specify the approximate height above ground level of the
   downconverting antenna; and

   (iii) Specify, if known, the adjacent channel D/U ratio that can be
   tolerated by any receiver(s) at the receive site.

   (2) The location (street address and geographic coordinates) of the
   main station or booster serving each EBS receive site entitled to
   protection, including:

   (i) The make and model of the antenna for that main station or booster,
   along with the radiation pattern if it is not included within the
   Commission's database;

   (ii) The ground elevation, above mean sea level (AMSL), of the building
   or antenna supporting structure on which the main station or booster
   transmission antenna is installed;

   (iii) The height above ground level (AGL) of the center of radiation of
   the transmission antenna;

   (iv) The orientation of the main lobe of the transmission antenna;

   (v) Any mechanical beamtilt or electrical beamtilt not reflected in the
   radiation pattern provided or included within the Commission's
   database;

   (vi) The bandwidth of each channel or subchannel, the emission type for
   each channel or subchannel, and the EIRP measured in the main lobe for
   each channel or subchannel; and

   (vii) The make and model of the receive antenna installed at that site,
   along with the radiation pattern if it is not included within the
   Commission's database.

   (3) The number and identification of EBS video programming or data
   transmission tracks the EBS licensee is entitled to receive in the MBS
   (see § 27.1233(b)).
