DISH Wireless wants to conduct Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) field tests to evaluate the effects of high-power operations in the band. It asked the FCC for a waiver to conduct the 3.5 GHz trials starting November 1 and ending February 28 of next year, in Boulder, CO.

If approved, DISH proposes to evaluate “coverage, throughput and spectral efficiency improvement” with high-power CBRS operations. It’s also curious to see the impact on current General Authorized Access and Priority Access License operations “if the in-band emission requirement of -25 dBm/MHz is waived to align with adjacent C-band,” or 3.7 GHz, the company says in its application.
