The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau released a Public Notice announcing the release of specifications for impairment file formats for the forward auction.  As you may recall, qualified bidders in the forward auction (Auction 1002) will have access to detailed impairment information upon receipt of their registration materials.  The Bureau has now released these specifications in order to enable prospective forward auction bidders to begin familiarizing themselves with the auction process.

The specifications released today set forth the file formats in which the information will be made available to qualified bidders.  The specifications include sample data only; they do not reflect the actual impairment information that will be made available for qualified bidders during the auction, and are subject to minor modifications as the auction software is finalized.

The Bureau plans to release specifications for forward auction bidding data file formats shortly.
