§ 22.513 Partitioning and disaggregation.
MEA and EA licensees may apply to partition their authorized geographic
service area or disaggregate their authorized spectrum at any time
following grant of their geographic area authorizations. Nationwide
geographic area licensees may apply to partition their authorized
geographic service area or disaggregate their authorized spectrum at
any time as of August 23, 1999.
(a) Application required. Parties seeking approval for partitioning
and/or disaggregation shall apply for partial assignment of a license
pursuant to § 1.948 of this chapter.
(b) Partitioning. In the case of partitioning, requests for
authorization for partial assignment of a license must include, as
attachments, a description of the partitioned service area and a
calculation of the population of the partitioned service area and the
authorized geographic service area. The partitioned service area shall
be defined by 120 sets of geographic coordinates at points at every 3
degrees azimuth from a point within the partitioned service area along
the partitioned service area boundary unless either an FCC-recognized
service area is used (e.g., MEA or EA) or county lines are followed.
The geographical coordinates must be specified in degrees, minutes, and
seconds to the nearest second latitude and longitude, and must be based
upon the 1983 North American Datum (NAD83). In the case where
FCC-recognized service areas or county lines are used, applicants need
only list the specific area(s) through use of FCC designations or
county names that constitute the partitioned area.
(c) Disaggregation. Spectrum may be disaggregated in any amount.
(d) Combined partitioning and disaggregation. Licensees may apply for
partial assignment of authorizations that propose combinations of
partitioning and disaggregation.
(e) License term. The license term for a partitioned license area and
for disaggregated spectrum shall be the remainder of the original
licensee's license term as provided for in § 1.955 of this chapter.
