If you live in Southern California near the El Centro NAF, look for WD2XUM, an experimental station licensed to operate on 530, 890 and 1680 kHz under a Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center contract "to modernize and transform psychological operation equipment." The license was issued to the consulting engineering firm Hatfield and Dawson.

Other license grants in the FCC's list of experimental actions from 10/1/05 to 11/3/05 include a license (WD2XTJ) to Fujitsu Laboratories of America for operation in the 3500-3600 MHz band to research handover between 802.16 (WiMAX) and 802.11 (WiFi) networks in Sunnyvale, CA and a license (WD2XUM) to Covad Communications for operation in the 3650-3700 MHz band for equipment testing in Atlanta; Phoenix; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Mesa, Ariz.; Yorba Linda, Calif.; San Jose, Calif.; Palo Alto, Calif.; Milpitas, Calif.; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Miami, Fla. and Hollywood, Fla.

Navini Network was allowed to use 2596-2602 MHz for a WiMAX product demonstration in Boston. Broadcast auxiliary users in western Maryland with links in the lower 450 MHz band may want to check for interference from Bechtel National, Inc.'s authorized facility in Frederick, Md. on 450 MHz. BAE Systems Information and Electronic Systems Integration Inc. was given authority to operate from 0.85 to 30 MHz for antenna tests. Satellite users in the Taunton, Mass. area may be interested in WD2XSS, an experimental station licensed to Lockheed Martin Integrated Systems and Solutions using 10.95-12.75 GHz and 14-14.5 GHz for "testing SATCOM on-the-move to provide the U.S. Army with mobile command and control capability."
