  §  101.82   Reimbursement and relocation expenses in the 2110-2150 MHz and
2160-2200 MHz bands.

   (a) Reimbursement and relocation expenses for the 2110-2130 MHz and
   2160-2200 MHz bands are addressed in § § 27.1160-27.1174.

   (b) Cost-sharing obligations between AWS and MSS (space-to-Earth
   downlink). Whenever an ET licensee (AWS or Mobile Satellite Service for
   space-to-Earth downlink in the 2130-2150 or 2180-2200 MHz bands)
   relocates an incumbent paired microwave link with one path in the
   2130-2150 MHz band and the paired path in the 2180-2200 MHz band, the
   relocator is entitled to reimbursement of 50 percent of its relocation
   costs (see paragraph (e)) of this section from any other AWS licensee
   or MSS space-to-Earth downlink operator which would have been required
   to relocate the same fixed microwave link as set forth in paragraphs
   (c) and (d) of this section.

   (c) Cost-sharing obligations for MSS (space-to-Earth downlinks). For an
   MSS space-to-Earth downlink, the cost-sharing obligation is based on
   the interference criteria for relocation, i.e., TIA TSB 86 or any
   standard successor, relative to the relocated microwave link.
   Subsequently entering MSS space-to-Earth downlink operators must
   reimburse AWS or MSS space-to-Earth relocators (see paragraph (e)) of
   this section before the later entrant may begin operations in these
   bands, unless the later entrant can demonstrate that it would not have
   interfered with the microwave link in question.

   (d) Cost-sharing obligations among terrestrial stations. For
   terrestrial stations (AWS), cost-sharing obligations are governed by
   § § 27.1160 through 27.1174 of this chapter; provided, however, that MSS
   operators are not obligated to reimburse voluntarily relocating FMS
   incumbents in the 2180-2200 MHz band. (AWS reimbursement and
   cost-sharing obligations relative to voluntarily relocating FMS
   incumbents are governed by § 27.1166 of this chapter).

   (e) The total costs of which 50 percent is to be reimbursed will not
   exceed $250,000 per paired fixed microwave link relocated, with an
   additional $150,000 permitted if a new or modified tower is required.
