Incentive Auction Update

Posted on November 5th, 2013 by

The FCC has rescheduled its workshop to discuss unlicensed spectrum issues in connection with the ongoing incentive auction rulemaking proceeding.  Instead of the originally scheduled October 24th date for the workshop, the new date is November 8th.  The workshop will be from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm EST.  The workshop will focus on the use of television band white space use by unlicensed devices in a post-auction environment.

In response to our inquiry, the FCC has advised that the deadline for comments on the reimbursement cost categories for television stations affected by repacking will be extended by a few days as well.  The original deadline was October 31, 2013.  The new deadline is November 4, 2013.
