The FCC released its monthly list of experimental license grants. The list of grants between 2/1/2005 and 3/1/2005 includes few grants affecting broadcasters, but readers in the Bellaire Subdivision in Houston, Texas may be interested to know Idacomm has been given an experimental license to operate in the 3.8 to 30 MHz band to conduct a Broadband over Power Line (BPL) experiment. Ham radio operators and shortwave radio listeners are most likely to be affected by this, but it may also be worth checking to see if any harmonics from the system cause interference to low VHF TV reception. Camtrol Systems received a license to operate in the 2.4 GHz band to test Part 15 devices, both fixed and mobile, in the state of Massachusetts. General Communication Corp. was authorized to use 1870-1885 MHz and 1950-1965 MHz to test a point-to-multipoint Wireless DOCSIS (Data-Over-Cable Service Interface Specification) distribution system in Anchorage, Alaska.

Refer to the list of experimental license grants between 2/1/2005 and 3/1/2005 for details on these grants and information on the three grants not mentioned here.
