ORDER ON RECONSIDERATION
Adopted: April 7, 2011 Released: April 8, 2011
By the Chief, Mobility Division, Wireless Telecommunications Bureau:
1. Introduction. We have before us a petition' filed by the Franklin Regional Council of
Governments (Franklin) for reconsideration of an Order2 dismissing Franklin's above-captioned
applications for new Industrial/Business Pool stations at various locations in Massachusetts. For the
reasons indicated below, we deny the petition.
2. Background. In July 2010, Franklin filed the above-captioned applications to operate on
frequency 461.000 MHz at various locations in Massachusetts.3 Frequency 461.000 MHz is subject to
Section 90.35(cX66) of the Commission's Rules, which states, "This frequency may be assigned only to
persons rendering a central station commercial protection service, which is defined in paragraph (c)(63)
of this section, within the service area of the radio station utilizing the frequency.'"4 Section 90.35(c)(63)
of the Commission's Rules defines "a central station commercial protection service" as "an electrical
protection and supervisory service rendered to the public from and by a central station accepted and
certified by one or more of the recognized rating agencies, or the Underwriters Laboratories' (UL), or
Factory Mutual System."' Section 90.35(c)(63) also provides that frequencies to which it applies may be
used by other licensees more than seventy-five miles from the center of specified urbanized areas.6
3. Franklin filed a "Supplemental Statement" with two of the applications, and a
"Supplemental Statement and Request for Waiver" with the third application. In all three filings, Franklin
noted that Section 90.35(c)(66) refers back to Section 90.35(c)(63), and frequencies subject to Section
90.35(c)(63) may be used by entities other than central station commercial protection service providers
outside the specified urbanized areas, so Franklin concluded that other operations were permitted on
'Letter dated Dec. 3, 2010 from Linda Dunlavy, Executive Director, Franklin Council of Governments to Federal
Communications Commission (Petition). The Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) filed an opposition.
Franklin filed a reply. CSAA submitted a supplement to its opposition, and requested leave to file it.
