FCC Experimental License Actions
The FCC granted several experimental licenses between Nov. 1 and Dec. 1, 2005 that could affect spectrum used by broadcasters. License WC2XZK allows M/A Com Private Radio Systems Inc. to operate on frequencies between 25 and 940 MHz, at 700 MHz and at 4.9 GHz for Part 90 base; handheld; and mobile station manufacturer testing in Lynchburg, Va. Curtiss Wright Controls was allowed to use frequencies between 2154 and 3013 MHz for equipment demonstrations in Holden (Worcester County), Mass.
Several experimental licenses were granted for WiMAX and communications testing in the 3.4 to 3.7 GHz frequency range. Qwest license WD2XTK allows operation in the 3395-3600 MHz band for a WiMAX base station with an end-user market study trial in Mead, Colo. Vanguard Technologies license WD2XUR allows operation in the 3650-3700 MHz band for equipment testing and evaluation for hurricane recovery in New Orleans and Chalmette, La. WD2XVD authorizes AirInfinite to use 3650-3700 MHz for equipment testing in Atlanta, Ga. CISCO may operate on 3500 MHz under license WD2XUZ for equipment evaluation, fixed and mobile, in San Jose, Calif. and in Durham County, N.C.
