Consolidated Waiver Requests
We encourage CBR Licensees that are part of a regional coordination plan, or that are otherwise
coordinating their rebanding efforts, to file consolidated waiver requests.'0
Recommended Content of Waiver Requests
The TA has developed a template waiver request form for licensees to use to provide the
information that we recommend including in their waiver requests. The template is available on the TA's
website at httn://www.800ta.org/content/resources/forms.asp. To expedite licensee preparation of
requests and Bureau review, we recommend that CBR Licensees use this template in preparing their
We recommend that licensees include the following in their requests:
* A description of system size and complexity.
* Interoperability arrangements with other systems, and how accommodating continued
interoperability may affect the ultimate rebanding schedule.
* Steps already taken to complete reconfiguration, including any participation in the Subscriber
Equipment Deployment (SED) program and participation in a TA-sponsored regional
Implementation Planning Session (or a commitment to participate in such a session). '
* A proposed timetable with the following elements:
o The steps in the rebanding process that have been or will be taken prior to the April 14,
o Anticipated dates of commencement and completion of:
" Replacement or retuning of mobiles/portables.
* Infrastructure retuning.
o The anticipated date(s) that the licensee will commence operations on its post-rebanding
channels and stop operations on its pre-rebanding channels.
o Additional rebanding steps that the licensee must take after commencement of operations
on rebanded channels, e.g., removing old channels from radios, and the anticipated date
for completion of these steps.
'o Consolidating licensees may designate a "lead" licensee to file a waiver request on their behalf. For tracking
purposes, however, each licensee that is part of the requesting group should separately provide the information
regarding its system described in this Public Notice and set forth in the template developed by the TA.
" If the licensee has also previously filed a waiver request for a system in the non-border area, please reference the
previous waiver ID as listed on the TA's website (http://www.800ta.org/content/resourices/tools.as - see Waiver
Request Lookup) in your CBR filing.
12 For a list of previously held and upcoming regional planning sessions sponsored by the TA, see www.800ta.org.
Licensees that have failed to participate in a planning session for their region should contact the TA to determine
whether their proposed schedule is consistent with implementation goals identified in the planning session.
