WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS BUREAU CONFIRMS CERTAIN LICENSES IN THE PAGING AND RADIOTELEPHONE SERVICE AND CERTAIN LICENSES OPERATING ON 929-930 MHz PRIVATE CARRIER PAGING EXCLUSIVE CHANNELS TERMINATED AS A RESULT OF SPECTRUM AUDIT On August 24, 2004, the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (Bureau) announced it would perform a license audit of the operational status of site-specific licenses operating in the Paging and Radiotelephone Service (Part 22) with a radio service code of “CD” and site-specific licenses operating on 929-930 MHz Private Carrier Paging exclusive channels (Part 90) with radio service code “GS”.1 On September 29, 2004, the Bureau mailed its first audit letter.2
The letters were mailed to all licensees, operating within the above parameters, inquiring into the operational status of each license held. Each licensee was required to respond and certify, by November 12, 2004, that its authorized station(s) had not permanently discontinued service as defined in 47 C.F.R. §22.317.3 The letters were mailed to each licensee at their address of record in the Universal Licensing System. We received a 70 percent response rate to this audit letter. On December 7, 2004 the Bureau mailed a second audit letter and notice of cancellation to those who did not respond to the first audit letter directing them to respond to the audit by January 21, 2005.4 Due to Commission error, a few licensees did not receive this letter and another letter was mailed on January 13, 2005 and the deadline to respond to the audit was extended to February 21, 2005.5 At the close of the audit on February 22, 2005, we received a total response rate of 84 percent.
In the audit letters that were mailed to the individual licensees, as well as in the Bureau’s Public Notices, we expressly indicated that a response to the audit letter was mandatory. We also indicated that failure to provide a timely response may result in the Commission’s presumption that the station at issue has permanently discontinued service as defined under section 22.317 and may result in the loss of the licensee’s authority to operate on the station(s) at issue in the audit letter. The Bureau has not received a response to the audit letters for the station licenses that are set forth in Appendix A. The Bureau therefore presumes that the stations identified in Appendix A have permanently discontinued service as defined under section 22.317 and confirms that these station licenses are terminated and are reflected as such in the Universal Licensing System.
In addition to the licenses in Appendix A that have been terminated by the Bureau as being presumed to have permanently discontinued service, many licenses were cancelled by the licensees as being permanently discontinued. These licenses, as well as the terminated licenses, are posted on the web site at http://wireless.fcc.gov/licensing/audits/paging/ under “Audit Progress and Results.”
