I was wondering if anyone had some experience working with towns to use the 4.9 GHz band. Maybe correct me if I am wrong, maybe give me some pointers on getting towns interested in this.
So most of our local townships have never even heard about 4.9 GHz and I have begun working with one to get permission for us to use it in their area. The process is a bit more involved then I first or second thought.
Here is what I have found
- You get written permission to use 4.9 GHz from the local Safety Coordinator.
- You apply for a license from the FCC to use the frequency.
- When you have permission you then need to mark out where your fixed sites will be and other paperwork about such sites.
At certain points I have been confused and it seems like some people are saying that the town/safety coordinator is supposed to posses the license themselves and then give permission. Has anyone done this before and can explain away my confusion?
