Section 74.802, Low Power Auxiliary Stations Co-channel Coordination with TV Broadcast Stations

OMB 3060-1205

OMB 3060-1205

The Federal Communications Commission (Commission) is requesting approval of a collection for the coordination of certain wireless microphone operations with television licensees. Low power auxiliary station ("LPAS") operations are intended for uses such as wireless microphones, cue and control communications, and synchronization of TV camera signals (referenced collectively as "wireless microphones"). The Commission's rules provide for licensed LPAS operations on unused television channels on a secondary, non-exclusive basis. In the Incentive Auction Report and Order, FCC 14-50, the Commission adopted rules to implement the broadcast television spectrum incentive auction, which will involve reorganizing the existing television band and repurposing a portion of the UHF television band for new wireless broadband services, and which will affect wireless microphone operations across the current TV bands. To ensure that wireless microphones users have access to as many television channels as possible following the repacking process, the Commission determined to revise its rules for co-channel operations in two ways to provide wireless microphones with access to additional television channels in particular locations without raising interference concerns to television licensees.
