§ 24.104 Partitioning and disaggregation.
Nationwide, regional, and MTA licensees may apply to partition their
authorized geographic service area or disaggregate their authorized
spectrum at any time following grant of their geographic area
(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, applicants and licensees
must file FCC Form 603 pursuant to § 1.948 of this chapter and describe
the partitioned service area on a schedule to the application. The
partitioned service area shall be defined by up to 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.
