§ 90.375 RSU license areas, communication zones and registrations
(a) Roadside Units (RSUs) in the 5895-5925 MHz band are licensed on the
basis of non-exclusive geographic areas. Governmental applicants will
be issued a geographic area license based on the geo-political area
encompassing the legal jurisdiction of the entity. All other applicants
will be issued a geographic area license for their proposed area of
operation based on county(s), state(s) or nationwide.
(b) Applicants who are approved in accordance with FCC Form 601 will be
granted non-exclusive licenses for all non-reserved DSRCS frequencies
(see § 90.377). Such licenses serve as a prerequisite of registering
individual RSUs located within the licensed geographic area described
in paragraph (a) of this section. Licensees must register each RSU in
the Universal Licensing System (ULS) before operating such RSU. RSU
registrations are subject, inter alia, to the requirements of § 1.923 of
this chapter as applicable (antenna structure registration,
environmental concerns, international coordination, and quiet zones).
Additionally, RSUs at locations subject to NTIA coordination (see
§ 90.371(b)) may not begin operation until NTIA approval is received.
Registrations are not effective until the Commission posts them on the
ULS. It is the DSRCS licensee's responsibility to delete from the
registration database any RSUs that have been discontinued.
(c) Licensees must operate each RSU in accordance with the Commission's
rules and the registration data posted on the ULS for such RSU.
Licensees must register each RSU for the smallest communication zone
needed for the intelligent transportation systems application using one
of the following four communication zones:
