STA Request

Please accept this letter as official notice that the City has provided funding and site approval for the procurement of the equipment required to complete the 10-County Interoperable Project as referenced in the attached filings. EMERGENCY STATION TEMPORANY AUTHORIZATION EXPEDITIED REQUEST August 21, 2007 Federal Communication Commission 1270 Fairfield Road Gettysburg, PA 17325 To: Tracy Simmons Bureau Chief This emergency was deemed to arisen pursuant to confidential conversation between City officials and officials of the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice. The City of Chicago hereby requests 180-day Emergency Special Temporary Authority for the operation of the below described systems/channels to provide the necessary RF linkage between existing City operations and the Statewide interoperability initiative employing the Astro 21 system and those channels being deployed as a portion of the U.S. Department of Justice�s High-Risk Metropolitan Area Interoperability Assistance Project. In essence, the City seeks designated channels which can be employed for the purpose offacilitating the coordination of construction of new systems being deployed, e.g. the UHF system that is being constructed County-wide to provide local interoperability throughout Northern Illinois; existing systems, e.g. the City�s 800 MHz radio facilities that require RF connectivity to the Statewide Astro 21 network; and to facilities interoperability in the extended use of VHF radio systems employed by firefighters throughout the region. Prior to its submission of this request, the City examined carefully its present spectrum capacity to determine whether its facilities could be redeployed to serve the needs described above. The City concluded that existing facilities could not be redeployed safely as the operational facilities licensed to the City are at full capacity; that redeployment would require major changes in present and planned system configurations that would create delay and add material costs to the City�s efforts; and that the temporary system design suggested herein would provide the immediate and necessary relief required to expedite and improve deployment of the City�s various radio networks that are vital to public safety, on a local, state, and nation-wide basis. Background The City boasts a police department with over 18,000 officers and support personnel. Although this phalanx of available personnel is quite beneficial for providing necessary public safety services, with this benefit comes a concurrent need to coordinate the activities of each officer and support personnel to apply this manpower to public safety needs. The City presently employs a UHF radio network for such purposes; however, the level of traffic and the increased duties arising out of homeland security efforts continues to tax severely the adequacy of this system. Of immediate importance, that network can longer be operated effectively as an operationally independent system. The need for coordination with fire, emergency personnel, and adjoining jurisdictions, as well as federal agencies, requires that the City take bold steps to assure that the police radio network works both internally for its myriad duties, and externally in coordination with other departments and jurisdictions. To reach the goal of developing greater interoperability capacity, the City requires additional channels to serve as UHF links and command channels to reach its goals, and to facilitate the coordination of the rapidly developing UHF network that continues its expansion in reliance upon existing radio licenses obtained. The requested UHF channels would also provide necessary RF linkage for the City�s emergency medical personnel. Over 925 paramedics and command personnel provide EMS services to City residents on a UHF system that is extremely limited in system capacity. There is no way to upgrade the system and concurrently move it toward interoperability by redeployment of the existing channels. Any downtime of the system caused by shifting facilities, rather than adding UHF links, at this time would be disastrous. The requested temporary authority to operate on the proposed UHF links would also serve this vital purpose to provide an RF bridge between what is now in place and what will be deployed in the future via a system redesign and upgrade. Similarly, the City operates its present VHF systems to support the over 2,500 fire fighters that protect the City against disasters. The present system was never designed with interoperability as a goal and the City is attempting to take immediate steps toward rectifying this situation, again, to allow all City departments the advantage of greater interagency cooperation and coordination. To provide the necessary spectrum to transition this system toward full interoperability and to increase the overall utility of the existing VHF radio system, the City proposes to employ the VHF channels identified herein on a temporary basis to bridge the gap in improved system design and capacity, without having to reconfigure existing facilities and lose vital throughput. Finally, the City�s use of 800 MHz radio channels are to operate a Citywide emergency siren system and a number of data channels in support of drug enforcement, disaster response, and the Organized Crime division. The systems are in flux for a number of reasons, including the City�s participation in 800 MHz re-banding pursuant to FCC Docket WT 02-55. Although the re-banding efforts are arduous and tax severely the resources of the City�s radio technical personnel, the City cannot back away from its ongoing efforts to increase the functionality and use of those systems by initiating RF linking to the Astro 21 Statewide project. To delay further the City�s efforts to accommodate re-banding to the exclusion of the City�s efforts toobtain Statewide interoperability on the State�s 800 MHz network at the same time, would be to ignore an opportunity to concurrently re-band, while upgrading network capacity. Obviously, a two-step approach is both inefficient and more costly and does not provide to the City the next vital step toward improved and necessary interoperability. Accordingly, what the City seeks via this request is the temporary use of unoccupied spectrum for a limited duration to bridge the gap between the present and future, without placing at risk its present network�s capacity by the creation of downtime or network reconfiguration. The City has considered carefully its request to assure that grant of temporary authority would not adversely affect other licensees and wouldconcurrently provide a myriad of public benefits, not the least of which is improved communications for the thousands of first responders and dozens of jurisdictions that would be benefit by grant and, of course, the millions of citizens that they protect and serve. The Specific Request Through the use of careful system design and deployment, the City�s request has been limited to only a handful of channels for temporary use. The City does not seek to tie up this spectrum unnecessarily or wastefully. Mindful of the Commission�s efforts to assure that its allocations of spectrum are coordinated to servelong term goals, the City has tried valiantly to reduce to the bare minimum the number and locations which are required to provide immediate assistance to the City�s efforts. By this method, the City is attempting to carefully balance the Commission�s agenda and the City�s immediate needs. This kind of federal-local cooperation is at the heart of all interoperability initiatives like the U.S. Department of Justice�s High-Risk Metropolitan Area Interoperability Assistance Project, which grant of this request will also assist in becoming a reality. Accordingly, the selection criteria employed by the City for its request of channels was as follows: (1) no more than one VHF two-way channel would be requested per location; (2) no more than one UHF channel would be requested per location; and (3) no more than one 800 MHz frequency per location would be requested, which frequencies cannot be presently licensed for use by any other entity within a 55-mile radius of any location. To further assure that the request would work in the present licensed spectrum environment, the 800 MHz channels identified herein are already licensed to the City on the lower end of the pair. That is, the City is the licensee for use of 820.8875, .9125, .9375, 9625, and .9875 MHz. This assignment reflects the licensing that was obtained under the, perhaps long forgotten, �Chicago Plan� and has continued to this day. Accordingly, neither Sprint Nextel nor any other licensee operates on the other side of the pair, i.e. upon the 865 MHz frequencies that are paired with the foregoing. By requesting these 800 MHz frequencies for temporary use, the City will not disturb the 800 MHz re-banding effort and requests use of frequencies upon which no entities� activities, existing or presently planned, relies. The City, therefore, deems that its request represents the minimum number of channels required to create the bridge to interoperability demanded by the daily operations of its public safety personnel and departments. The channels also representthe best solution toward local interoperability with the Counties of Kane, Du Page, Cook, Lake, Will, McHenry, Kendal, Porter and Lake (Indiana), and Kenosha (Wisconsin). Together these 10 counties represent one of the most populous and vulnerable areas in the Country. Their citizens and elected officials and first responders are aching for resolution of the interoperability challenges via a transition from the present network to one that is able to communicate and coordinate with local, State and Federal agencies. To meet this goal is a tremendous challenge, but the City of Chicago is willing to meet this challenge via the requested cooperation from the Commission in the form of grant of the instant request. The City recognizes that this request is unusual in its scope and particulars. However, the immediate needs of the City require a creative approach to solving its pressing concerns. Without the City�s obtaining the requested authority, the networks and jurisdictions affected may need to wait over nine months to a year to achieve what might be obtained in a few months time via the use of the STA authorized channels identified herein. Stated most directly, the extremely high public interest in encouraging interoperability and attendant homeland security benefits is simply too great to require needless delay. The City desperately requires this �bridge loan� of channels to complete expeditiously this project and looks to the Commission to provide the necessary, minimum channels to achieve a successful, rapid deployment of interoperable systems. The City recognizes that its interoperability efforts may have come later than some other jurisdictions. Funding priorities and delays in achieving cooperative agreements with other jurisdictions and agencies have bedeviled the good faith efforts that the City has employed. Additionally, the City has had to design its interoperability solutions based on upgrading and improving existing facilities by evolution to newer and better technologies. Given the sheer size of the City�s networks, it is financially impossible to overbuild with an entirely new system that would require hundreds of repeaters and tens of thousands of new mobiles and portables. Therefore, the Cityis required to base its future plans in partial reliance upon the capacity of existing facilities. Practical considerations are not always as neat as theoretical plans that are beyond reality in funding and deployment. And sometimes, like is reflected herein, the solution is a creative use of temporary permission to operate outside of the normal, regulatory box; to provide a cost effective, efficient solution that otherwise would require prolonged time and additional costs that would be better spent investing in more permanent solutions. If the City�s instant proposal requires waiver of the Commission�s Rules, the City requests such waiver, to serve the public interest. The City believes that its foregoing description and effort demonstrate clearly the public interest to be served by grant of the instant request, and the City respectfully contends that the Commission possesses all flexibility in the waiver of its Rules to accommodate the City�s request when such an important public interest consideration is before it, particularly when grant of the request will only provide to the City temporary authority for use of the subject channels. Despite the City�s careful consideration of the proposed channels, the City recognizes that there may exist some reasonfor the Commission�s reluctance to grant the specific channels identified herein. Accordingly, the City will accept a partial grant of this request to the extent deemed appropriate by the Bureau and/or the Bureau�s determination of alternative channels which might serve the pressing needs of the City. The City is fully willing to work with the Bureau to find an immediate resolution of these circumstances, to fulfill the City�s obligation to its first responders and citizens.
