Office of Engineering and Technology to Hold Comsearch TV Band Database System Trial


The Federal Communications Commission’s Office of Engineering and Technology (OET) has announced that it will commence a 45-day public trial of Comsearch’s TV band database system on February 24, 2014. As part of its authorization process for TV band database systems, the Commission requires that each database be subject to a public trial period of not less than 45 days to ensure that the database provides accurate results before it is made available for regular public use. This trial will allow the public to test Comsearch’s database to ensure that it correctly identifies channels that are available for unlicensed TV band devices, properly registers radio transmitting facilities entitled to protection, and provides protection to authorized services and registered facilities as specified in the Commission’s rules. Parties may participate in the trial by accessing Comsearch’s TV band database test facility at:
