Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
We are designing, fabricating and testing unique antenna elements and arrays for improving range and capacity in band 71 for mobile cellular broadband communications. The mission is to make these antennas efficient and light-weight so that they can be deployed on traditional structures as well as tethered aerostats to reach underserved areas. Since we are not licensed commercial 4G LTE operators, we need the STA to test.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Testing from the rooftop of the Quacomm Institue on the UC San Diego Campus will allow us to refine and confirm the efficacy of novel antenna arrays that we believe will be disruptive to the industry in their efficiency, capacity and range. Military and DHS applications for this include range extension for LTE communications. We are working with the Marine Air Office of the Customs and Border Patrol, DHS (Marine Lab #4) out of San Padre Island on these applications.

Class of Station: FX
Nature of Service: Experimental

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date: 02/01/2024
Operation End Date: 08/01/2024

List below transmitting equipment to be installed (if experimental, so state) if additional rows are required, please submit equipment list as an exhibit:
