Dear SEC Members, Attached are comments that the RR-TAG proposes to file with the FCC. The subject of WT 06-49 is "Amendment of the Commission's Part 90 Rules in the 904-909.75 and 919.75-928 MHz Bands". This band is shared between a variety of unlicensed and licensed services. The proposal would remove the restriction on M-LMS operators that currently prevent them from providing voice services and PSTN connectivity. The RR-TAG, in consultation with 802.15, is of the view that the changes will adversely impact unlicensed technologies that coexist under the current rules with the M-LMS service. The rules as they exist today are those that were taken into consideration by the M-LMS operators when they bid for their licenses in the 1990s. Similarly manufacturers have, based on those same rules, invested in developing unlicensed products for that frequency band that are widely used today by consumers. The FCC created a "safe harbor" in this band for unlicensed devices which should be maintained. The RR-TAG developed these comments during its May interim in Jacksonville. A quorum was present and these comments were approved by a vote of 9 Yes, 0 No, 0 Abstain. The comment period for 06-49 closes 30 May. I propose that the EC review begins today (24 May) and closes at midnight CDT 29 May.
