Frequency Coordination includes the generation and dissemination of prior coordination notices (PCN) to the frequency coordinator representatives of each microwave receiver located within a coordination contour around each proposed new microwave transmit location.
When a PCN is received by a frequency coordinator, the interference analysis done by Intelpath in selecting the frequencies will be checked, and any potential conflicts with the clients of that coordinator will be identified and transmitted back to Intelpath.
A negotiation between frequency coordinators ensues and is completed only when all potential conflicts have been resolved.
Each recipient frequency coordinator has thirty days to respond to each PCN.
At the end of the frequency coordination process, the deliverables are a data sheet and a Supplemental Showing become attachments to the FCC Form 601 license application form.
