CBRS PAL auction rules are set


Recommended Posts

7 10MHz TDD licenses are available per county license area for PAL (Priority Access License) holders. You may win up to 4 of the licenses per county. There is also incumbent license holders such as DOD coastal radars and fixed satellite providers which have the highest priority. PAL licensees must yield to the incumbents and GAA (General Authorized Access must yield to the incumbents and PAL licensees.

I went looking for a little more detail on the 3.5 GHz licenses.  Here is a link for those interested: https://www.fcc.gov/wireless/bureau-divisions/mobility-division/35-ghz-band/35-ghz-band-overview


Thanks Robert. I expect that the cable cos will be all over this spectrum auction  while I think that the Big Two will be more active in the C-Band auction because more spectrum (up to 280MHz will be available). I don't know what T-Mobile is going to do. Probably sit out the CBRS auction and bid on the C-Band. For the cable cos if they get some CBRS spectrum it will be a good way to reduce their MVNO payments to Verizon. If they want to be serious about wireless they have to also bid in the C-Band auction. Both of the bands are great fits for strand and pole mount small cells. I wonder if they are forward looking enough to offer spectrum hosting for all other winners. No sense in somebody else expending so much money to develop the infrastructure that the cable cos already have in place.

T-Mobile also needs to reserve money for the upcoming unused 2.5GHz spectrum auction.  The duo would likely continue their shill practices and buy up key parts like AT&T did in San Francisco.

    • Let me take a look tonight. 
    • Actually, I notice it says whole clusters were skipped because of invalid TAC values.  It says "File exported for inspection."  I do have Log Sites with Missing TAC checked. Robert
    • I was able to figure this out by looking at your diagnostic reports -- you're seeing n7 because your Galaxy A32 is reporting it natively as n7.. Samsung will have to fix that on their end unfortunately. Do the engineering screens report it correctly? I have an A32 test device but I have not seen it connect to n41 (or "n7") yet. If I do, I'll try to troubleshoot and nag Samsung. EDIT: After I installed the new Android 12 update, I'm now seeing the n7 bug too -- I will reach out to Samsung. They were very responsive when I reported some related glitches with the initial A32 software.
    • I appreciate the feedback today -- another new is SCP beta rolling out right now! It should resolve the force closes that started with yesterday's beta release; I also made additional improvements that hopefully(?) will reduce ongoing issues with overall app stability.
    • I'm noticing a spike in instability while driving around testing the app today also.. more freeze-ups than crashes, but it's probably all related. Hopefully any crash reports that are collected can shed some light on it for me. I'll be looking into it later tonight.
