TPD and PCWIN ... Time Extension Granted
For those of you following the being of PCWIN down here in Pima County :
Tucson requested a waiver to delay the start of operations of their portion of the PCWIN agreement. The FCC granted it. Here are some details I found of interest:
- Four of the five sites under the Tucson license, WPQA524, have been completed. The final site construction must be done by 31 December, 2012.
- Tucson plans to begin system-wide testing in April 2013. Following testing and completion of the other PCWIN sites, operations will begin on 1 August, 2013.
- By 17 December 2013, Tucson must be integrated into the PCWIN system and commence operations.
Finally some firm dates must be met per the FCC, or Tucson's license will be cancelled. The FCC said 12 years and not having completed construction and operations in that time will require "an exceptionally high level of scrutiny" for any further extension requests.
