request pursuant to Section 1.41 of the Rules is discretionary.49 In support of its request, Smartcomm
states only that treating its opposition as an informal request would provide the Commission with "an
important opportunity to develop a full record."" We find that this is insufficient to merit our accepting
the Smartcomm pleading as an informal request for Commission action. We therefore deny
Smartcomm's request and dismiss its opposition.
18. In response to the Public Safety Parties' concerns, we affirm that we will consider waiver
requests from public safety entities that can demonstrate a compelling need for Interleaved Band channels
in advance of when they otherwise will be available. In the event a public safety entity submits a waiver
request, we will issue a public notice to afford interested parties, including Sprint, the opportunity to
comment on the request.
