Millimeter Wave - Upper Microwave Flexible Use (Auction Channels) August 30, 2018 13:31

In our Millimeter Wave - Spectrum Ownership Analysis Tool, we have incorporated the FCC's re-licensing of the LMDS A band (27.500-28.350GHz) into the new Upper Microwave Flexible Use Service.  In making this change the FCC issued new call signs and leases for all of the previous LMDS A band BTA area licenses with L1 and L2 band Upper Microwave Flexible Use Service channels.  In the new framework (and our database) a new call sign was release for each channel (L1, L2) by county.  The remaining A band licenses remained LMDS licenses.

County Analysis:
As you can see in the image below, we still provide the county-level spectrum depth by frequency band for the entire LMDS band (purple).
But we also break out the L1, L2, A, and B channel's spectrum depth separately.  This is a useful view to determine if the L1/L2 channels will be available from the FCC in the November auction.
