SUMMARY OF REQUEST
Pursuant to Section 47 C.F.R. § 1.925(b)(3), the City and County of San Francisco, the City of Oakland, and the City of San Jose (“Bay Area Cities”), as members of the Bay Area Urban AreaSecurity Initiative (“Bay Area UASI”), respectfully submit this Amended Request for Waiver of theCommission’s rules to allow the Bay Area Cities to use the public safety broadband spectrum in the700 MHz band to deploy a regional, mobile, interoperable public safety broadband network. Thissubmission clarifies the Bay Area Cities’ original waiver request filed March 24, 2009. Among otherclarifications, this amended request underscores the commitment of the Bay Area Cities to ensuringthat a Bay Area public safety broadband network would be compatible with national standards andfully interoperable with a nationwide network or other regional networks meeting national standards.The clarifications follow the Bay Area Cities’ further productive collaboration with the Public SafetySpectrum Trust (PSST), as the current Public Safety Broadband Licensee (PSBL), which recentlypublicly announced its support of the Bay Area Cities’ goal of deploying a wireless broadbandnetwork for public safety use.
