SB QST ARL ARLB072
ARLB072 FCC grants deadline extension on Spectrum Policy comments

The FCC extended the deadline to receive comments on the recently
released Spectrum Policy Task Force Report. The FCC extended comment
deadlines by 18 days. The FCC had set January 9 as a deadline for
comments and February 10 for reply comments.

The IEEE Radio Regulatory Technical Advisory Group and Nick Leggett,
N3NL, both filed motions for an extension of time.

The IEEE group said it needed more time to ensure that views
expressed in its comments represent the consensus views of its
members.

Leggett expressed concern about the impact of holiday activities on
the ability of interested parties to make substantive comments by
the deadline.

The new comment deadline is January 27, 2003, and the new reply
comment deadline is February 28. The FCC notes that the Spectrum
Policy Task Force Report was drafted by FCC staff and was neither
voted upon nor approved by the Commission.

The text of the Report and other Task Force documents are available
on the Task Force Web site at www.fcc.gov/sptf.
