API Asks FCC to Adopt 4.9 GHz Band Item

April 24, 2017–Members of the American Petroleum Institute say the FCC should adopt a 4.9 gigahertz band further notice of proposed rulemaking. An ex parte filing posted today in WP dockets 07-100 and 15-32 reporting on a meeting with API members and representatives of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau expressed support for the further notice. A 4.9 GHz band further notice was circulated last November during the tenure of former FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler (TR Daily, Nov. 10, 2016). But it was pulled from circulation along with a number of other items after FCC Chairman Ajit Pai took over the agency (TR Daily, Jan. 30). But a revised version is expected to be circulated.
