     61[http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/WIMXBBN/020810%20%20license-HOWTO.pdf  Suggestions from Tony Michel} on the application process include:
    6362 * Consider Educational Broadband Services and Broadband Radio Services range of 2496 - 2690 MHz.
    64  * Checking the FCC database to learn which spectrum in your area is available, and which has been assigned.
    65  * Furthermore, he suggests using an antenna and a spectrum analyzer to determine which assigned spectrum is actually being used in your area.
    66  * As a first choice, you should apply for spectrum that is available.
    67  * As a second choice, you should apply for spectrum that has been assigned for commercial use (e.g., Sprint/Clearwire) that has not yet started.
     63 * Check the FCC database to learn which spectrum in your area is available, and which has been assigned.
     64 * Furthermore, if possible, use an antenna and a spectrum analyzer to determine which assigned spectrum is actually being used in your area.
     65 * As a first choice, apply for spectrum that is available.
     66 * As a second choice, apply for spectrum that has been assigned for commercial use (e.g., Sprint/Clearwire) that has not yet started.
    6867 
    6968The person submitting the application needs to obtain either a personal or institution FCC Registration Number (FRN).  If one is not available, it can be obtained through  [https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/coresWeb/publicHome.do FCC's COmmission REgistration System (CORES) registration].
     
    103102Here is a 2nd sample license, the [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/WIMXBBN/022410%20%20WiMAXlicense.pdf BBN Technologies license], received from the FCC on 2/24/10.
    104103
    105 ISSUE:  The Rutgers/WINLAB and BBN licenses state:  "Licensee must get consent from Educational Broadband Services and Broadband
    106 Radio Services licensees in the immediate vicinity of the tests."    This must be done at each site.  Could it be done for all sites by contacting Sprint/ClearWire on behalf of GENI?
    107 
    108 ISSUE:  In the Rutgers/WINLAB case, and probably for others, the base station will have to shut down (or find available spectrum) when Sprint/ClearWire starts commercial service in the area.  Can we determine when might this be expected for each of the affected areas?

     158To install the WiMAX antenna:
    161159 * Follow Sec 1 - 5 of the [attachment:ANTENNA.pdf NEC Sector Antenna Installation Manual]
    162160 * Antenna height is limited to 6 m above the roof of the building, for reasons of aircraft safety.
    163  * Since throughput and coverage of WiMAX systems are highly influenced by the antenna location, care should be taken that the antenna is mounted so that significant portion of First Fresnel Zone is clear of obstructions.  Ideally the antenna is mounted on the elevated structure providing clear line of sight to most of the intended coverage area.
    164 
    165 ISSUE:  On which side of the pole should the antenna be mounted?  How should it be tilted?  How do these influence the coverage pattern?
