  §  27.11   Initial authorization.

   (a) An applicant must file a single application for an initial
   authorization for all markets won and frequency blocks desired. Initial
   authorizations shall be granted in accordance with § 27.5. Applications
   for individual sites are not required and will not be accepted, except
   where required for environmental assessments, in accordance with
   § § 1.1301 through 1.1319 of this chapter.

   (b) 2305-2320 MHz and 2345-2360 MHz bands. Initial authorizations for
   the 2305-2320 MHz and 2345-2360 MHz bands shall be for 10 megahertz of
   spectrum in accordance with § 27.5(a).

   (1) Authorizations for Blocks A and B will be based on Major Economic
   Areas (MEAs), as specified in § 27.6(a)(1).

   (2) Authorizations for Blocks C and D will be based on Regional
   Economic Area Groupings (REAGs), as specified in § 27.6(a)(2).

   (c) 746-758 MHz, 775-788 MHz, and 805-806 MHz bands. Initial
   authorizations for the 746-758 MHz, 775-788 MHz, and 805-806 MHz bands
   shall be for paired channels of 1, 5, 6, or 11 megahertz of spectrum in
   accordance with § 27.5(b).

   (1) Authorizations for Block A, consisting of two paired channels of 1
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(b)(1).

   (2) Authorizations for Block B, consisting of two paired channels of 1
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(b)(1).

   (3) Authorizations for Block C, consisting of two paired channels of 11
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(b)(2). In the event that no licenses granting authorizations for
   Block C, consisting of two paired channels of 11 megahertz each, are
   assigned based on the results of the first auction in which such
   licenses are offered because the auction results do not satisfy the
   applicable reserve price, then the authorizations for the spectrum in
   the 746-757 MHz and 776-787 MHz bands will instead be as follows:

   (i) Authorizations for Block C1, consisting of two paired channels of 6
   megahertz each in the 746-752 MHz and 776-782 MHz bands, will be based
   on those geographic areas specified in § 27.6(b)(2)(i).

   (ii) Authorizations for Block C2, consisting of two paired channels of
   5 megahertz each in the 752-757 MHz and 782-787 MHz bands, will be
   based on those geographic areas specified in § 27.6(b)(2)(ii).

   (d) 698-746 MHz band. Initial authorizations for the 698-746 MHz band
   shall be for 6 or 12 megahertz of spectrum in accordance with § 27.5(c).

   (1) Authorizations for Block A, consisting of two paired channels of 6
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(c)(1).

   (2) Authorizations for Block B, consisting of two paired channels of 6
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(c)(2).

   (3) Authorizations for Block C, consisting of two paired channels of 6
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(c)(2).

   (4) Authorizations for Block D, consisting of an unpaired channel block
   of 6 megahertz, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(c)(3).

   (5) Authorizations for Block E, consisting of an unpaired channel block
   of 6 megahertz, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(c)(1).

   (e) 1390-1392 MHz band. Initial authorizations for the 1390-1392 MHz
   band shall be for 2 megahertz of spectrum in accordance with § 27.5(d).
   Authorizations will be based on Major Economic Areas (MEAs), as
   specified in § 27.6(d).

   (f) The paired 1392-1395 MHz and 1432-1435 MHz bands. Initial
   authorizations for the paired 1392-1395 MHz and 1432-1435 MHz bands
   shall be for 3 megahertz of paired spectrum in accordance with
   § 27.5(e). Authorization for Blocks A and B will be based on Economic
   Areas Groupings (EAGs), as specified in § 27.6(e).

   (g) 1670-1675 MHz band. Initial authorizations for the 1670-1675 MHz
   band shall be for 5 megahertz of spectrum in accordance with § 27.5(f).
   Authorizations will be on a nationwide basis.

   (h) [Reserved]

   (i) 1710-1755 MHz and 2110-2155 MHz bands. Initial authorizations for
   the 1710-1755 MHz and 2110-2155 MHz bands shall be for 5 or 10
   megahertz of spectrum in each band in accordance with § 27.5(h) of this
   part.

   (1) Authorizations for Block A, consisting of two paired channels of 10
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(h)(1).

   (2) Authorizations for Block B, consisting of two paired channels of 10
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(h)(2).

   (3) Authorizations for Block C, consisting of two paired channels of 5
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(h)(2).

   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(h)(3).

   (6) Authorizations for Block F, consisting of two paired channels of 10
   megahertz each, will be based on those geographic areas specified in
   § 27.6(h)(3).

   (j) 1695-1710 MHz, 1755-1780 MHz and 2155-2180 MHz bands. (1) Initial
   authorizations for the 1695-1710 MHz band shall be based on the
   frequency blocks specified in § 27.5(h)(3) and the corresponding service
   area specified in § 27.6(k)(2).

   (2) Initial authorizations for the 1755-1780 MHz and 2155-2180 MHz
   shall be based on the paired frequency blocks specified in § 27.5(h)(1)
   and (2) and the corresponding service areas specified in § 27.6(k)(1)
   and (2).

   (k) 600 MHz band. Initial authorizations for the 600 MHz band will be

   shall be paired channels that each consist of a 5 megahertz channel
   block in the 600 MHz downlink band (617-652 MHz), paired with a 5
   megahertz channel block in the 600 MHz uplink band (663-698 MHz), based
   on the frequency blocks specified in § 27.5(l).

   (l) 3700-3980 MHz band. Authorizations for licenses in the 3.7 GHz
   Service will be based on Partial Economic Areas (PEAs), as specified in
