Viewing CBRS Licenses and Call Signs March 29, 2021 09:19

On March 15th, the FCC granted the first CBRS PAL licenses to 222 carriers.  In total the FCC issued nearly 17,500 PAL licenses in this initial group.  To view these licenses in our Web Spectrum Viewer, choose our Upper Mid-band (Up-Mid Band) in the band menu and chose the CBRS in the sub-band menu.

 

To find PAL licenses for specific markets, use our geographic filters.  To find call signs for the Dallas/Fort Worth market, chose CMA Name in the Region menu and start typing Dallas in the Regional Values menu.

 

In this view you can see the PAL licenses that each carrier controls for each county in the Dallas/Fort Worth CMA market.  From this view there are two ways to view the call sign for each license.  The first way is to click on the spectrum grid cell to reveal the call sign details for that cell.  The detail below is for the CBRS-A channel that Charter controls in Dallas county.

The second way to reveal the call signs puts the call signs into each of the spectrum grid cells, by selecting call signs in the Data Type menu.  This view allows the user to see all of the call signs for the Dallas/Fort Worth market and also indicates the licenses that have not been granted yet, because our placeholder call signs (CBR_C48221_A) are still present.
