§ 90.363 Grandfathering provisions for existing AVM licensees.
(a) These provisions authorize grandfathered operation by automatic
vehicle monitoring (AVM) systems licensed on or before February 3,
1995. To attain grandfathered status for their stations, existing
multilateration AVM licensees must file, on or before May 22, 1995,
applications to modify their station licenses to comply with the band
plan shown in § 90.357(a). These applications to modify must identify
the multilateration sub-band or sub-bands in which the applicants
intend to operate their LMS system stations, once their applications to
modify have been authorized. The application to modify a license to
comply with the band plan shown in § 90.357(a) may also include a
modification to specify an alternate site, so long as the alternate
site is 2 kilometers or less from the site specified in the original
(b) When existing multilateration AVM licensees file applications to
modify, as specified in paragraph (a) of this section, they must
certify that either:
(1) The stations that compose their AVM system were constructed and
placed in operation in accordance with § 90.155(e) on or before February
3, 1995; or
(2) The stations were not constructed and placed in operation in
accordance with § 90.155(e) on or before February 3, 1995.
(c) Multilateration AVM systems that were constructed and placed in
operation on or before February 3, 1995 will be given until April 1,
1998 to convert to the spectrum identified in their LMS system license.
Such licensees may continue to operate their systems during this
period. Licensees of multilateration AVM constructed and operational
systems that do not file applications to modify on or before May 22,
1995, will be permitted to continue operations under the provisions of
former § 90.239 until April 1, 1998 or the end of their original license
term, whichever occurs first, at which time such licenses will cancel
automatically and will not be renewed.
(d) Multilateration AVM licensees for stations that were not
constructed and placed in operation on or before February 3, 1995 must
construct their LMS systems and place them in operation on the spectrum
identified in their LMS system license on or before September 1, 1996,
or their licenses will cancel automatically (see Section 90.155 (e)).
Also, these licenses will cancel automatically on July 1, 1996 unless
timely modification applications are filed on or before this date (see
paragraph (a) of this section).
(e) Non-multilateration systems licensed in spectrum other than the
902.00-904.00 and 909.75-921.75 MHz bands must modify their licenses by
April 1, 1998 to specify operation solely in the bands provided in
§ 90.357(b) for non-multilateration systems and to operate their systems
consistently with the provisions of § 90.353.
