Experimental Licenses Granted

I only saw one experimental license grant in the FCC Office of Engineering and Technology list of experimental applications granted from 12/1/04 to 1/1/05 that could impact TV broadcast operations. VIASAT was allowed to use frequencies in the 2000-2300 MHz band at an antenna test range. This band includes frequencies in the 2 GHz broadcast auxiliary services band. The authorization also included frequency bands 1435-1540, 1650-1750, 7250-7750, and 8000-8400 MHz.

Several experimental licenses were granted for operation in the new 4.9 GHz band. These include WD2XLD to Cisco Systems to use 4900-5000 MHz and 5020-5100 MHz for product development fixed and mobile in San Jose, Calif. and Richfield, Ohio. The County of Los Angeles was granted a license to use the 4940-4990 MHz band to send public safety video from helicopters in the greater Los Angeles Basin, including Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. Lockheed Martin was authorized to use the same band for product testing in King of Prussia Pa., Manhattan N.Y. and Queens N.Y.

See the list of experimental applications granted from 12/1/04 to 1/1/05 for more information and additional license grants.
