Download as PDF erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with RULES 45072 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 147 / Monday, August 2, 2010 / Rules and Regulations WCS licensees that intend to modify an existing base station must, before commencing such modified operation, provide 5 business days prior notice to all SDARS licensees. For the purposes of this section, a business day is defined by § 1.4(e)(2) of this chapter. (c) Contents of notice. (1) Notification must be written (e.g., certified letter, fax, or e-mail) and include the licensee’s name, and the name, address, and telephone number of its coordination representative, unless the SDARS licensee and all potentially affected WCS licensees reach a mutual agreement to provide notification by some other means. WCS licensees and SDARS licensees may establish such a mutually agreeable alternative notification mechanism without prior Commission approval, provided that they comply with all other requirements of this section. (2) Regardless of the notification method, it must specify relevant technical details, including, at a minimum: (i) The coordinates of the proposed base station to an accuracy of no less than ± 1 second latitude and longitude; (ii) The proposed operating power(s), frequency band(s), and emission(s); (iii) The antenna center height above ground and ground elevation above mean sea level, both to an accuracy of no less than ± 1 meter; (iv) The antenna gain pattern(s) in the azimuth and elevation planes that include the peak of the main beam; and (v) The antenna downtilt angle(s). (3) A WCS licensee operating base stations must maintain an accurate and up-to-date inventory of its base stations, including the information set forth in § 27.72(c)(2), which shall be available upon request by the Commission. (d) Calculation of notice period. Notice periods are calculated from the date of receipt by the licensee being notified. If notification is by mail, the date of receipt is evidenced by the return receipt on certified mail. If notification is by fax, the date of receipt is evidenced by the notifying party’s fax transmission confirmation log. If notification is by e-mail, the date of receipt is evidenced by a return e-mail receipt. If the SDARS licensee and all potentially affected WCS licensees reach a mutual agreement to provide notification by some other means, that agreement must specify the method for determining the beginning of the notice period. (e) Duty to cooperate. WCS licensees must cooperate in good faith in the selection and use of new station sites and new frequencies to reduce interference and make the most effective VerDate Mar<15>2010 12:40 Jul 30, 2010 Jkt 220001 use of the authorized facilities. WCS licensees should provide SDARS licensees as much lead time as practicable to provide ample time to conduct analyses and opportunity for prudent base station site selection prior to WCS licensees entering into real estate and tower leasing or purchasing agreements. WCS licensees must have sufficient operational flexibility in their network design to implement one or more technical solutions to remedy harmful interference. Licensees of stations suffering or causing harmful interference must cooperate in good faith and resolve such problems by mutually satisfactory arrangements. If the licensees are unable to do so, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, in consultation with the Office of Engineering and Technology and the International Bureau, will consider the actions taken by the parties to mitigate the risk of and remedy any alleged interference. In determining the appropriate action, the Bureau will take into account the nature and extent of the interference and act promptly to remedy the interference. The Bureau may impose restrictions on WCS licensees, including specifying the transmitter power, antenna height, or other technical or operational measures to remedy the interference, and will take into account previous measures by the licensees to mitigate the risk of interference. 14. Section 27.73 is added to read as follows: § 27.73 WCS, AMT, and Goldstone coordination requirements. This section requires Wireless Communications Services (WCS) licensees in the 2345–2360 MHz band to coordinate the deployment of base stations with Aeronautical Mobile Telemetry (AMT) facilities in the 2360– 2395 MHz band; and to take all practicable steps necessary to minimize the risk of harmful interference to AMT facilities. (a) Wireless Communications Service (WCS) licensees operating base stations in the 2345–2360 MHz band shall, prior to operation of such base stations, achieve a mutually satisfactory coordination agreement with the Aerospace and Flight Test Radio Coordinating Council (AFTRCC) for any AMT receiver facility within 45 kilometers or the radio line of sight, whichever distance is larger, of the intended WCS base station location. This coordination is necessary to protect AMT receive systems consistent with Recommendation ITU–R M.1459. The locations of the current and planned PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Federal and non-Federal AMT receiver sites may be obtained from AFTRCC. (b) WCS licensees operating base stations in the 2305–2320 MHz band shall, prior to operation of such base stations, achieve a mutually satisfactory coordination agreement with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) within 145 kilometers of the Goldstone, CA earth station site (35°25′33″ N, 116°53′23″ W). (c) After base station operations commence, upon receipt of a complaint of harmful interference, the WCS licensee(s) receiving the complaint, no matter the distance from the NASA Goldstone, CA earth station or from an AMT site, operating in the 2305–2320 or 2345–2360 MHz bands, respectively, shall take all practicable steps to immediately eliminate the interference. (d) Duty to cooperate. WCS licensees, AFTRCC, and NASA must cooperate in good faith in the coordination and deployment of new facilities. WCS licensees must also cooperate in good faith in the selection and use of new station sites and new frequencies when within radio line of site of AMT receiver facilities to reduce the risk of harmful interference and make the most effective use of the authorized facilities. Licensees of stations suffering or causing harmful interference must cooperate in good faith and resolve such problems by mutually satisfactory arrangements. If the licensees are unable to do so, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, in consultation with the Office of Engineering and Technology and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration may impose restrictions including specifying the transmitter power, antenna height, or area or hours of operation of the stations.

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Inflation 
Adjustment of Acquisition-Related Thresholds (DFARS Case 2009-D003)

AGENCY: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense 
(DoD).

[[Page 45073]]


ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal 
Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement the recurring 
requirement of section 807 of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005. Section 807 provides for 
adjustment every 5 years of statutory acquisition-related thresholds, 
except for Davis-Bacon Act, Service Contract Act, and trade agreements 
thresholds. This final rule also adjusts some non-statutory 
acquisition-related thresholds.

DATES: Effective Date: October 1, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amy Williams, 703-602-0328.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    The first review of DFARS acquisition-related thresholds to 
implement section 807 of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (Pub. L. 108-375) was conducted 
under DFARS Case 2004-D022 during fiscal year 2005. The final DFARS 
rule was published in the Federal Register on December 19, 2006 (71 FR 
75891).
    This is the second review of DFARS acquisition-related thresholds. 
DoD published a proposed rule on January 20, 2010 (75 FR 3187). The 
preamble to the proposed rule contained a detailed explanation of--
     What an acquisition-related threshold is;
     Which acquisition-related thresholds are not subject to 
escalation adjustment under this case; and
     How DoD analyzes statutory and non-statutory acquisition-
related thresholds.
    No public comments were received.
    This rule was subject to Office of Management and Budget review 
under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    DoD certifies that this rule will not have a substantial economic 
impact on small business because the adjustment of acquisition-related 
thresholds for inflation just maintains the status quo. No comments 
were received regarding impact on small business.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does apply. The proposed changes to the 
DFARS do not impose new information collection requirements that 
require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 
U.S.C. 3501, et seq. They maintain the following information collection 
requirements at the status quo by adjusting the thresholds for 
inflation:
