Title: Licensing, Operation, and Transition of the 2500–2690 MHz Band. Form No.: N/A. Estimated Annual Burden: 2,500 respondents; 8,355 annual burden hours; 0.25–5 hours per respondent. Needs and Uses: In the Commission’s Third Memorandum Opinion and Order and Second Report and Order (FCC 06– 46), New Broadband Radio Service (BRS) and Educational Broadband Service (EBS) band plan transitions take place in Basic Trading Areas (BTAs), which will provide both incumbent licensees and potential new entrants in the 2495–2690 MHz band with greatly enhanced flexibility to encourage the efficient and effective use of spectrum domestically and internationally and the growth and rapid development of innovative and efficient communications technologies and services. The information collection requirements are contained in the following rule sections: (1) The pretransition data request (47 CFR 27.1231(d)); (2) the transition notice (47 CFR 27.1231(e)); (3) the Initiation Plan (47 CFR 27.1231(f)); and (4) the posttransition notification (47 CFR 27.1235). The Pre-transition data request will be collected by a third-party proponent (proponent) to assist in the transitioning the 2500–2690 MHz band. The proponent may use a variety of methods, including a computerized database. The proponent will send the transition notice to all BRS and EBS licensees in the BTA that the proponent is transitioning. The FCC will collect the Initiation Plan and the Post-transition Notification from the proponent to enable the FCC to assess when transitions have begun and when they have ended. The FCC will use our electronic comment and filing system (ECFS) database to collect this information from the proponents. Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary. [FR Doc.
