(a) An EA or Regional licensee must construct a sufficient number of
base stations (i.e., base stations for land mobile and/or paging
operations) to provide coverage to at least one-third of the population
of its EA or REAG within five years of the issuance of its initial
license and at least two-thirds of the population of its EA or REAG

requirements of paragraph (a) of this section, as applicable, will
result in automatic cancellation of its entire EA or Regional license.
In such instances, EA or Regional licenses will not be converted to
individual, site-by-site authorizations for already constructed
(d) EA and Regional licensees will not be permitted to count the resale
of the services of other providers in their EA or REAG, e.g.,
incumbent, Phase I licensees, to meet the construction requirement of
paragraph (a) of this section, as applicable.
(e) EA and Regional licensees will not be required to construct and
place in operation, or commence service on, all of their authorized
channels at all of their base stations or fixed stations.
