Next step in 800MHz reconfiguration to begin this month

The two are related because of an FCC plan that awards part of the current TV BAS Channel 1 to Nextel Communications in exchange for vacating part of the 700MHz and 800MHz band to resolve the interference problems.

Last week, the commission designated June 27 as the date 800MHz reconfiguration will begin.
