Pilings Of Filings

Nothing of any real interest in FCC site licensing.

Have been a lot of routine renewals. There normally wouldn't need to be so many. They involve special authorizations that expire in short time periods.

VIPER has to keep using frequencies that it should really be off.

Lots of online electronic "paperwork" in dealing with rebanding.

No Dirt To Dish

Recent VIPER FCC licensing activity frenzy seems to have ended. The Sprint/Nextel reconfiguring process really had things in modification mode there for a while.

The official project website hasn't released any updated public information yet.

Informed sources aren't too informative lately, either.

Not that nothing is happening.  Just one of those reporting gaps again.

Add On And On

Site licenses continue to be modified with added rebanded frequencies.

Radio service code gets changed from YF (current public safety band plan) to reconfigured YE plan.

Actual RF changeover yet to come.

Relocating Rockingham

VIPER is needing to relocate current Rockingham County sites and that requires new licensing.

Some channels to be added as well.

"STA Request" filings under "Attachments" on the online FCC applications referenced below give the details. "Locations" and "Frequencies" tabs provide those changes.
