Latest FCC Experimental License Grants Cover Wide Range of RF Apps
While few of the applications listed in the FCC Office of Engineering and Technology’s report listing experimental licenses granted from 6/1/08 to 7/1/08 are on frequencies affecting broadcasters, the licenses include some interesting RF applications.

Boeing Company license WE2XSQ allows use of 50 Hz to 1 MHz for validating lightning protection of aircraft design. Use the FCC OET Experimental Licensing System Call Sign Search to search on WE2XSQ to see how this technology works. It is quite interesting.

Network Transportation Technologies LLC received a license (WE2XOI) allowing use of 24.15 GHz for testing an intersection warning system radar for automotive traffic safety in Plymouth, Minn.

WE2XPI authorizes Vubiq, Inc. to use frequencies as high as 246 GHz for testing and research of RFID and video transport technologies.

Dataradio COR Ltd’s experimental license WE2XDY allows operation in the 137-174 MHz, 403-512 MHz, 762-806 MHz, 806-869 MHz and 928-960 MHz frequency bands for testing wireless modems. The 762-806 MHz spectrum is currently used for TV channels 62 through 69. The license allows mobile/temporary fixed operation in Waseca, Minn.

Regarding grants for other operation on frequencies currently assigned for TV broadcasting, Manifest Wireless received licenses allowing operation on TV channel 56, 722-728 MHz, for testing and developing wireless technologies in the E block in Atlanta, Dallas, and Denver.
