“We encourage all interested parties to test the database and provide appropriate feedback to Google,” the FCC said.
The commission’s Part 15 rules require that unlicensed TV band devices contact an authorized database system to obtain a list of channels that are available for their operation at their individual locations and must operate only on those channels. Such devices are required to provide their geographic location, by means of a secure Internet connection, to a TV band database system authorized by the FCC. The database will then return a list of the channels available for operation by a device at its reported location.
Each database is subject to a public trial period of not less than 45 days to ensure that the database is providing accurate results before it is allowed to be made available for regular public use. Interested parties can file comments or reply comments on the trial at any time during and after the trial period.
