Auction 77 is being held to resolve two groups of mutually exclusive applications for unserved area licenses in the Cellular Radiotelephone Service. (One of the groups of mutually exclusive applications was settled, see DA 08-1166, prior to the auction. Thus, the auction included only one group.) The applications are for authority to operate new cellular systems in or to expand existing cellular systems into unserved areas.
