For further decoding the signal classification (emission designator) go to:
Source: Code of Federal Regulations, Title 47 Telecommunications, Part §2.201 Emission, modulation, and transmission characteristics.
 
Source of authorizations for experimentation:
 
The Google STA expires 7/4/2016. Typically the FCC frowns on extending a temporary authority and requests that the holder file an experimental license, which is valid for 2 years.
