It does not take that long to get a license.  

The frequency coordinator can clear a pair in a day if there is a pair to be 

Once they find you some freqs, if you are on a short time line, order the 
radios and antennas.

I would risk firing them up and aiming them before you get the PCN clearance as 
the frequency coordinators are pretty danged good.  Low chance of harming 
someone else.  I would not leave them on for any longer than it takes to aim 

The absolutely safe way of doing it is to give the rest of the world the 30 
days to respond to the PCN stuff.
Then if no objections buy the radios and antennas.  
Then file with the FCC.  
Then install and aim and operate.

  Has the PCN passed with no objections? What does your coordinator say?

  Im pretty sure the answer is an absolute no, and I know I CAN do it without 
likely being caught.

  If we have the gear on hand and are just waiting on the FCC, I know we can 
physically install the radios, its just storage at height at that point, but 
can we turn it on long enough to do fine alignment?
