Of those who notified UTC of your intent to operate on these new bands, has anyone heard back from them yet with a "permission denied" reply? No news is good news.

I currently have a functioning 22 watt WSPR transmitter for 630m and will be putting up an antenna soon - if no bad news arrives...  Angry

Did you receive any type of confirmation email from UTC to confirm your application? I have not.

I seem to recall that a response was automatically generated.

Hmmm... Maybe I need to re-apply. Can anyone else share their experience?

Supposedly, if you don't hear from them by oct 15, you're good to go.

Here is a reply to the UTC question just received from John Langridge
of the NJD Technologies website:

The public notice states they will contact you via email first
and then phone if they don't reach you either way and ask
that you acknowledge their notification.  

It will probably be a web link to click.

If you don't hear anything from them in 30 days of registering you are
free to operate but it is possible that they could come back later and
tell you to stop.  

The public notice is vague in that regard.

Many of us don't believe they will contact anyone but we will see...
you have to be careful using dates because its only the 16th of
October if you registered on September 15.  

It's 30 days after registration.

I'm with the group that  we'll have any interaction with the UTC. When I filed I didn't receive a confirmation.
As far as I can tell there isn't even a list available to check status of the filing.
I filed on 9/19/17 I guess I'll wait until the 31st day B4 operating unless I get feedback from the UTC.

Thanks, Bill. My experience is the same. It seems to be a black box that the FCC conveniently has ignored. I would be happy to adjudicate this blind tranference of statutory authority if anything more comes of it.

It is interesting how differently the two responses are worded.

My appologies.  Here is the full text of the approval:


                                                                                                October 13, 2017

 

Dear Christopher King (KG6NPB),

This notice is being provided to Approve your proposed amateur radio station in the 135.7 - 137.8 | 472.0 - 479.0 band(s) at the following coordinates:  35⁰ N 0’ 7.7999999999999998”, 76⁰ W 58’ 52.700000000000003”.   UTC has determined that your proposed amateur radio station would not operate within a horizontal distance of one kilometer from a transmission line that conducts a power line carrier (PLC) signal in the 135.7 - 137.8 | 472.0 - 479.0 bands.

An amateur operator must not operate an amateur station if UTC responds that the proposed amateur station is located within 1 km of a transmission line with a PLC system that operates on the same frequency or frequency range.  Amateur operators are advised that their operations within 1 km of a PLC system could cause interference to PLC systems that are used by electric utilities to protect their electric transmission systems against faults and electrical outages.  Interference from amateur operations could affect the operation of PLC systems, thereby affecting the reliability of electric utility operations.  As such, amateur operators are advised not to operate any amateur stations within 1 km of a transmission line with a PLC system that operates on the same frequency or frequency range, and amateur operators will be subject to FCC enforcement for unauthorized operations, as well as potential legal liability for damages that result from interference caused by amateur operations to PLC systems.

Please direct any questions to the undersigned.

Mike Etzel
