  §  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.
