  §  101.97   Future licensing in the 18.30-19.30 GHz band.

   (a) All major modifications and extensions to existing FS systems in
   the 18.3-18.58 band after November 19, 2002, or in the 18.58-19.30 band
   after June 8, 2000 (with the exception of certain low power operations
   authorized under § 101.147(r)(10)) will be authorized on a secondary
   basis to FSS systems. All other modifications will render the modified
   FS license secondary to FSS operations, unless the incumbent
   affirmatively justifies primary status and the incumbent FS licensee
   establishes that the modification would not add to the relocation costs
   for FSS licensees. Incumbent FS licensees will maintain primary status
   for the following technical changes:

   (1) Decreases in power;

   (2) Minor changes (increases or decreases) in antenna height;

   (3) Minor location changes (up to two seconds);

   (4) Any data correction which does not involve a change in the location
   of an existing facility;

   (5) Reductions in authorized bandwidth;

   (6) Minor changes (increases or decreases) in structure height;

   (7) Changes (increases or decreases) in ground elevation that do not
   affect centerline height;

   (8) Minor equipment changes.

   (9) Changes in ownership or control.

   (b) The provisions of § 101.83 are applicable, notwithstanding any other
   provisions of this section.
