  • Over the past several months, we have noticed increased congestion for private, 900 MHz multiple address systems (MAS) in several areas throughout the country. Many recent MAS requests require concurrence from nearby co-channel or adjacent channel licensees. In addition, the Commission’s conditional temporary authority rules – which provide certain applicants with authority to operate some land mobile and point-to-point microwave systems while an application is pending at the FCC – are not available to MAS systems. As a result, we recommend planning for additional time when creating timelines for projects requiring MAS systems. For more information, please contact Wes Wright ([email protected]; 202.434.4239).
