The Commission today granted a 60-day extension of time for the relocation of broadcast auxiliaries in the 2 GHz band.  The extension of time is in response to the joint petition submitted last week by Sprint Nextel, MSTV, NAB, and Society of Broadcast Engineers requesting that the Commission waive the current BAS transition completion date for an additional twenty-nine months.  A copy of the Commission’s Public Notice can be found here.  Barring this extension of time, Sprint Nextel would have been obligated to complete the relocation of all BAS facilities by September 7, 2007, which clearly would have been impossible.  The Commission’s 60-day extension of time will push the deadline back to November 6, 2007, and allow Commission time to consider the issues raised by the petitioners and whether a two and a half year extension is warranted.
