Dear Two-Way Radio Licensee,
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) started the Narrowbanding proceedings, also known as Refarming, almost twenty years ago in an effort to promote more efficient spectrum use in the 150-174 MHz (VHF) and 421-512 MHz (UHF) Part 90 radio frequency bands (which include Business, Industrial, Education, Transportation, Public Safety, and State, Local, and Provincial Government two-way radio system licensees). The FCC has released numerous rulings during this time defining the requirements and mandating specific deadlines which you may need to take action on.
We are here to help you prepare for a smooth and cost-effective transition. While Motorola radios purchased in the last ten years are likely dual-mode 25/12.5 kHz, older equipment may need to be replaced. Today Motorola offers the broadest choice of two-way radio equipment, with close to 60 models capable of operating in 12.5 kHz efficiency. This document includes information on most of Motorola's 12.5 kHz products.
Please contact us today for assistance with your transition process.
What are the potential enforcement consequences to VHF/UHF licensees of failing to narrowband by January 1, 2013?
Waiver of Narrowbanding Deadlines for T-Band (470-512 MHz) Licensees
On April 26, the FCC issued a waiver from its Jan. 13, 2013, VHF/UHF Narrowbanding deadline for T–Band licensees (470–512 MHz) . This waiver became necessary when Congress decided to require the FCC to auction the public safety portion of the T-Band.
Complying With The Mandate
The FCC Narrowbanding Mandate is finally here. Licensees who have not completed their narrowband migration should review the following steps:
