Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Sensus is developing a demo AMI system at our engineering facility in Covington, LA since we have no European engineering design facilities. We anticipate selling this system in Europe. The European frequencies we expect to use are paired frequencies in the 412-414 MHz and 422-424 MHz ranges. We currently have no license to operate these frequencies in the US. As an extension, we would like to use this time to continue to operate while we prepare to apply for and are hopefully granted an experimental license.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  To test AMI RF equipment. We hope to be able to perform extensive RF lab and field testing of this newly developed AMI RF equipment prior to taking it to the EU. We also hope to perform demonstrations here in the US for our potential EU clients.

Callsign: WE9XCR
Class of Station: FX
Nature of Service: Experimental

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date: 06/07/2010
Operation End Date: 10/31/2010
