agree with Sprint that "the Petition is a repetitious catalogue of alleged injustices presented in the hope
that one of them will gain some traction." This scattershot approach to pleading, with clear disregard for
the Commission's procedural rules, borders on abuse of process and unnecessarily burdens the resources
of the Commission and other parties - resources better devoted to the timely completion of nationwide
800 MHz band reconfiguration. We have not, however, summarily dismissed the Petition and, instead,
have explained the respects in which it does not conform to the Commission's procedural rules, in the
expectation that Indiana, and any other party similarly disposed to ignore the procedural rules, will fully
realize the impropriety, and futility, of doing so.
28. Indiana's belief that the Commission's rules and 800 MHz orders entitle it to the vendor
of its choice, no matter what the price, is misplaced - the minimum necessary cost standard is to the
contrary. We therefore affirm the Indiana Order's determination that the sum of $51,590 is the minimum
necessary cost for obtaining the ministerial licensing services associated with rebanding Indiana's system.
We also affirm the Indiana Order's determination that it was reasonably foreseeable that replacement
radios should be deployed with both the pre-rebanding and post-rebanding channels installed. Therefore,
Indiana's change order request to require Sprint to pay for retrieving the radios from the field to give them
a first touch was properly disallowed.
