Deadline for Filing Waiver Requests
CBR Licensees requiring additional time past April 14, 2011 to complete rebanding must file
requests for waiver no later than 45 days after April 14, 2011, i.e. by May 31, 2011,5 except for licensees
for which the filing deadline is tolled.
CBR Licensees that must file waiver requests by May 31, 2011 fall in three categories:
I. CBR Licensees that executed a Frequency Reconfiguration Agreement (FRA) with Sprint
Nextel Corporation (Sprint) before April 14, 2011 must file an extension request and a
proposed timetable for completion.6
2. CBR Licensees that have executed an FRA with Sprint but cannot complete rebanding
because a "downstream" licensee is blocking their replacement channels must file a waiver
request detailing the non-frequency dependent activities they have engaged in to date, and
must propose a timetable for completion of all rebanding activities once their replacement
channels are free of encumbrances.
3. CBR Licensees that are unable to propose a specific timetable because they have not
executed an FRA with Sprint prior to April 14, 2011 must file an interim waiver request in
which they state when they anticipate signing an FRA. Once the FRA is signed, these
licensees must submit a final waiver request, including a proposed timetable for completion.
Waiver Requirement Tolled for Licensees Without TA Approval of their FRAs
Some CBR licensees have completed negotiations for an FRA and filed the FRA with the 800
MHz Transition Administrator (TA), but the TA has not yet approved the FRA pending resolution of
frequency conflicts with Canadian stations. For these licensees (listed in Appendix A), the deadline for
completion of rebanding is tolled until twelve months after their FRA is approved by the TA. Any such
licensee that will not complete rebanding by that deadline must submit a waiver request prior to that date.
CBR Licensees may file waiver requests with the Bureau via e-mail through the
PSHSB800@fcc.gov mailbox.7 Licensees should provide electronic copies of their requests to both
Sprint and the TA.' Requests will be posted on the Bureau website and in the licensee's Universal
Licensing System (ULS) file.9 For ULS posting purposes, we recommend that licensees with multiple
call-signs designate a lead call-sign in the request.
S Because the 45h day after April 14'h falls on a weekend and the following Monday is a holiday, licensees shall file
waiver requests on or before Tuesday, May 31, 2011.
6 Any licensee that executes an FRA with Sprint after April 14, 2011 but prior to May 31, 2011 may file an
extension request as if it completed the FRA prior to April 14, 2011.
Requests filed via e-mail must be attached to the e-mail as a separate document.
8 Copies of the waiver requests must be sent to the TA via e-mail to Waivers(800ta.org. and to Sprint via e-mail to
SInbformation for which confidentiality is sought under Part 0.459 of the Commission's Rules will not be posted.
