The Commission is seeking information on non-subscriber locations and operating characteristics of BRS receivers and other system characteristics of BRS incumbents (including operations by lessees) not currently collected on FCC Form 601 for this service. The Commission does not plan on incorporating this reporting requirement into the FCC Form 601 because it is a one-time collection. Respondents would submit the information as a separate attachment to their FCC 601 application. This one-time collection is necessary because BRS Channels 1 and/or 2/2A are currently licensed at 2150–2150/62 MHz, which the Commission has designated for Advanced Wireless Services (AWS). The Commission also has announced that it intends to auction AWS licenses for 2150–2155 MHz, among other bands, as early as June 2006. Future AWS licensees will be obligated to relocate incumbent BRS operations in the 2150–2160/62 MHz band to comparable facilities, most likely within the newly restructured 2.5 GHz band. The Commission is currently reviewing comments filed in response to the Fifth Notice and considering the details of this relocation process in ET Docket No. 00–258 (FCC 05–172). However, in the Order, the Commission concluded that reliable, public data on each incumbent BRS system that will be subject to relocation is essential well in advance of this planned spectrum auction and that neither the Commission nor the public has reliable, up-to-date information on the construction status and/or operational parameters of these BRS systems. Accordingly, the Commission ordered licensees of BRS Channels 1 and/or 2/ 2A to submit information, listed in the Order, after the staff issued Public Notice(s) setting forth the specific data required, deadlines, and the procedures for filing this information electronically on the Commission’s Universal Licensing System (ULS), where it will be available to the public. To assist in determining the scope of the new AWS entrants’ relocation obligations, the Commission ordered BRS licensees in the 2150–2160/62 MHz band to provide the required data within 60 days and 120 days of the effective date of its Order, noting that these dates would correspond to OMB approval of the information collection, i.e., PRA requirements for the ULS.
