Download as PDF 32028 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 114 / Wednesday, June 16, 2021 / Notices The Buyback Loan A and Loan B program fee rates will remain at 1 percent beginning with landings on June 1, 2021. The first due date for fee payments at these rates will be July 15, 2021. ADDRESSES: Send questions about this notice to Elaine Saiz, Chief, Financial Services Division, National Marine Fisheries Service, 1315 East-West Highway—13th Floor, Silver Spring, MD 20910–3282. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elaine Saiz, (301) 427–8752. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Purpose The purpose of this notice is to announce the continuance of the current fee rates for the reduction fishery in accordance with the framework rule’s 50 CFR 600.1013(b). Section 600.1013(b) directs NMFS to recalculate the fee to a rate that will be reasonably necessary to ensure reduction loan repayment within the specified 40-year term. For the 2020 fishing season, the fee rate for both Loan A and Loan B was 1 percent of the landed value and any subsequent bonus payment. For the 2021 fishing season, the fee rate will remain unchanged at 1 percent for both Loan A and Loan B. A letter was previously sent by mail informing all Buyback permit holders and buyers that the rates would remain at 1 percent for each loan in the 2021 season. Fish buyers may continue to use Pay.gov to disburse collected fee deposits at: http:// www.pay.gov/paygov/. Please visit the NOAA Fisheries website for additional information at: https:// www.fisheries.noaa.gov/alaska/fundingand-financial-services/southeast-alaskapurse-seine-salmon-fishery-buybackprogram. II. Notice The fee rates for the Buyback Loans A and B are effective June 1, 2021. Fish sellers and fish buyers must pay and collect the fee in the manner set out in 50 CFR 600.1107 and the framework rule. Consequently, all harvesters and fish buyers should read subpart L to § 600.1013 to understand how fish harvesters must pay and fish buyers must collect the fee. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1861 et seq.; Pub.

Abstract of Patent

    A method of establishing a hardware identity of a coordinating 
device in a wireless network is provided. A standard PHY preamble is 
modified to a preamble that can be received by the coordinating device 
having an expected hardware configuration. The modified PHY preamble is 
transmitted with an association request by a joining device. In 
response to not receiving a reply containing an association response 
from the coordinating device by the joining device, determining the 
hardware configuration of the coordinating device is not the expected 
hardware configuration. A further method of characterizing a hardware 
identity of a device in a wireless network is also provided. A request 
with a modified PHY preamble is transmitted to a device. If a reply is 
received from the device, characterizing the device as a first hardware 
type. And, if a reply is not received, characterizing the device as not 
the first hardware type.
    The Department of the Air Force may grant the prospective license 
unless a timely objection is received that sufficiently shows the grant 
of the license would be inconsistent with the Bayh-Dole Act or 
implementing regulations. A competing application for a patent license 
agreement, completed in compliance with 37 CFR 404.8 and received by 
the Air Force within the period for timely objections, will be treated 
as an objection and may be considered as an alternative to the proposed 
license.
