    UTC is Coordinated Universal Time. That is what you want a response from?

    I wish's plc had been a link. Something about this bothered me, so I came back and took a closer look at it. It seems that in this case UTC is Utilities Technology Council. I suppose everyone else knew that? Oh well.

    Read the instruction on the FCC notice. If you don't receive any objection from the UTC after thirty (30) days, then you may may commence operating on 630m and 2200m.

    Thanks, Yea, sorry i should have said i knew i could go ahead and operate.
    I had read where people were getting approvals though and was wondering what peoples current experiences are.
    maybe they now only respond if your denied?

    I applied long ago and received no reply. I'm on-the-air. I kept notes of the application date and end of the 30-day wait period. 73s, KI6R

    The UTC may have just given up on responding to the notifications because no problems have occurred with amateur radio operations in the 630-meter and 2200-meter bands. The regulations, in 47 CFR Part 97 Section 97.303(g)(2) state that, after notification has been given of intended operation, if no objection is received, then operation can commence on those bands. Basically, if they don't object within the 30-days, the UTC has, effectively, given their consent for operation.

    Or, the UTC may have given up on issuing notifications of compliance and are just notifying those who are within 1 kilometer of a PLC system that operation is not allowed.

    I did notify the UTC within the first couple of days that such was required. It was definitely more than 30-days before I received approval.

    I'm well past the 30 days so I guess it's time to start looking for gear.
