FCC Grants 800 MHz Band Waiver

The Policy and Licensing Division of the FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau released an order today granting the Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corp.’s request for a waiver to share use of the Tennessee Advanced Communications Network (TACN), a statewide radio system. “Based on the record, and for the reasons stated below, we (1) grant the request for a waiver of Section 90.179 with regard to MTEMC’s proposed use of TACN’s 800 MHz facilities, and (2) find that no waiver is necessary for MTEMC’s proposed use of TACN’s 700 MHz facilities because MTEMC has committed to abide by conditions that satisfy the eligibility criteria in Section 337 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 90.523(b) of the Commission rules,” the order said.
