ARLX001 FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau gets new chief

John Muleta recently began duties as the new chief of the FCC's
Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, the bureau that administers the
Amateur Radio Service.

Muleta takes over the reins from Thomas Sugrue, who announced
earlier this year that he was leaving the FCC. Muleta previously was
president and CEO of Source 1 Technologies LLC, a privately held
systems integration firm based in Washington, DC.

He's also a former FCC official. From 1994 until 1998 Muleta had
held various positions in the Common Carrier Bureau--including
deputy bureau chief and chief of the enforcement division--and in
the Office of Plans and Policy. After leaving the FCC, Muleta worked
for PSINet.

He holds degrees in systems engineering, business and law from the
University of Virginia. Sugrue had headed the WTB for four years.
FCC Chairman Michael Powell credited Sugrue with playing "an
integral role" in crafting the FCC's positions on spectrum policy
and other wireless issues.
