By the Deputy Chief, Mobility Division, Wireless Telecommunications Bureau:
1. We have before us a petition' filed by DCC Engineering (DCC) to deny the above-captioned
application" filed by Comtronics Corporation (Contronics). For the reasons set forth below we deny
DCC's petition, and will process the application.
2. Comtronics is the licensee of Industrial/Business Pool Station WIL823, Boston,
Massachusetts, which is authorized to operate a base station on. inter alia, frequency 484.6125 MHz, and
seventy-nine mobile units on frequencies 484.6125 MHz and 487.6125 MHz. DCC is the licensee of
Station WPKU899, Waltham, Massachusetts, which is authorized to operate a base station on frequency
484.6125 MHz, and nineteen mobile units on frequencies 484.6125 MHz and 487.6125 MHz. On
January 31, 2011, Comtronics filed an application to modify the license for Station WIL823 to add
narrowband emission designators in order to comply with the upcoming narrowbanding deadline,3 and to
change the station class code from conventional (IG) to trunked (YG). On February 4, 2011 DCC filed its
petition to deny the application. Comtronics responded to DCC on February 8, 2011,4 and on February
18, 201 1 amended the application to reduce the number of mobile units on frequencies 484.6125 MHz
and 487.6125 MHz from seventy-nine to seventy-one.
3. DCC first argues that the application should be denied because Comtronics's current base
station operations are causing interference to DCC.5 Except as otherwise specifically provided,
frequencies below 512 MHz assigned to land mobile stations are available on a shared basis and will not
be assigned for the exclusive use of any licensee." We expect licensees to cooperate in the use of these
