The FCC announced a two-week extension, through October 31, 2018, to the filing window for fixed-satellite service (FSS) earth stations currently operating in the 3.7-4.2 GHz frequency band. The Bureau had previously announced that the filing window for earth stations in the 3.7-4.2 GHz band would close on October 17, 2018. However, due to the large influx of earth station applications filed near the deadline, the International Bureau Filing System (IBFS) had experienced intermittent difficulties that have prevented some applicants from filing for license or registration. The Bureau decided to extend the filing window for an additional two weeks, through October 31, 2018, to accommodate filers who are unable to file by October 17.
