Advisory Committee on Cemeteries and Memorials, Notice of Meeting, 21299-21300 [2015-08783]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 74 / Friday, April 17, 2015 / Notices Issued in Washington, DC, on April 2015. Melissa L. Porter, Chief Counsel. [FR Doc. 2015–08786 Filed 4–16–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–06–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–2004–18895] tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Petition for Waiver of Compliance In accordance with part 211 of title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this provides the public notice that by a document dated November 25, 2014, Wabtec Railway Electronics has petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR 232.409(d)— Inspection and testing of end-of-train devices. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2004–18895. Wabtec Railway Electronics (Wabtec) is submitting a request for a 5-year extension to the waiver previously granted to it in Docket Number FRA– 2004–18895. Wabtec initially submitted its request for a waiver of compliance from 49 CFR 232.409(d) in July 2004, and the waiver was granted in May 2005. Subsequently, Wabtec applied for a 5-year extension to the original waiver in October 2009. The extension was granted in May 2010. In its original request for waiver of compliance from 49 CFR 232.409(d) in July 2004, Wabtec stated that the advanced technology being used in the units includes transceivers with phase locked loop circuitry along with temperature and voltage controlled crystal oscillators to maintain spectral (signal) purity. This automatic calibration algorithm works by optimizing the voltage-controlled oscillators’ control parameters to achieve minimum phase noise. It auto calibrates the power amplifier and power amplifier driver bias current every time the transmitter is powered. This automatic calibration feature is the heart of maintaining the radio’s performance integrity. Should the radio experience a component failure, the automated calibration routine will cycle continuously, effectively shut down the radio, and provide the appropriate ‘‘No Comm’’ display in the cab of the locomotive. Failure in the micro/power supply areas will also result in an inoperable radio, and the same ‘‘No Comm’’ message will be received in the locomotive cab. Therefore, there is no VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:08 Apr 16, 2015 Jkt 235001 need to annually test and calibrate the new synthesized radio. Essentially, if the radio is transmitting, the signal is within the proper specifications. In the most recent letter dated November 25, 2014, Wabtec stated that it still offers this radio (Wabtec TrainLink II) in certain new manufactured end-of-train/head-of-train (EOT/HOT) products today, although it has largely been replaced by a more modern radio design. However, there is a large fielded population in service in North America. Wabtec further stated that in order to meet the needs of customers, the company plans to continue to manufacture Wabtec digitally synthesized radios (Wabtec TrainLink series) for replacement use in HOT and EOT equipment, as well as limited use in new production deliveries. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.
