PART 15_RADIO FREQUENCY DEVICES--Table of Contents
 
      Subpart D_Unlicensed Personal Communications Service Devices
 
Sec. 15.307  Coordination with fixed microwave service.
    (a) UTAM, Inc. is designated to coordinate and manage the transition 
of the 1910-1930 MHz band from the Private Operational-Fixed Microwave 
Service (OFS) operating under part 101 of this chapter to unlicensed PCS 
operations,
    (b) Each application for certification of equipment operating under 
the provisions of this subpart must be accompanied by an affidavit from 
UTAM, Inc. certifying that the applicant is a participating member of 
UTAM, Inc. In the event a grantee fails to fulfill the obligations 
attendant to participation in UTAM, Inc., the Commission may invoke 
administrative sanctions as necessary to preclude continued marketing 
and installation of devices covered by the grant of certification, 
including but not limited to revoking certification.
    (c) An application for certification of a PCS device that is deemed 
by UTAM, Inc. to be noncoordinatable will not be accepted until the 
Commission announces that a need for coordination no longer exists.
    (d) A coordinatable PCS device is required to incorporate means that 
ensure that it cannot be activated until its location has been 
coordinated by UTAM, Inc. The application for certification shall 
contain an explanation of all measures taken to prevent unauthorized 
operation. This explanation shall include all procedural safeguards, 
such as the mandatory use of licensed technicians to install the 
equipment, and a complete description of all technical features 
controlling activation of the device.
    (e) A coordinatable PCS device shall incorporate an automatic 
mechanism for disabling operation in the event it is moved outside the 
geographic area
[[Page 832]]
where its operation has been coordinated by UTAM, Inc. The application 
for certification shall contain a full description of the safeguards 
against unauthorized relocation and must satisfy the Commission that the 
safeguards cannot be easily defeated.
    (f) At such time as the Commission deems that the need for 
coordination between unlicensed PCS operations and existing Part 101 
Private Operational-Fixed Microwave Services ceases to exist, the 
disabling mechanism required by paragraph (e) of this section will no 
longer be required.
    (g) Operations under the provisions of this subpart are required to 
protect systems in the Private Operational-Fixed Microwave Service 
operating within the 1850-1990 MHz band until the dates and conditions 
specified in Sec. Sec. 101.69 through 101.73 of this chapter for 
termination of primary status. Interference protection is not required 
for part 101 stations in this band licensed on a secondary basis.
    (h) The operator of a PCS device that is relocated from the 
coordinated area specified by UTAM, Inc., must cease operating the 
device until coordination for the new location is verified by UTAM, Inc.
