What is Narrowbanding all about?

If your organization owns or operates a two-way radio system, you need to be aware of the facts concerning Narrowbanding. Briefly, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has mandated that all Land Mobile Part 90 two way radios in the VHF and UHF frequency bands (relative to 150-174 MHz and 421-470 MHz) must operate on 12.5 kHz channel bandwidths or narrower, or at an equivalent throughput efficiency for which 25 kHz use channels may be retained, by January 1, 2013. The FCC in April 2012 removed the narrowband requirement for T-Band licensees (470-512 MHz). See below and the links to the left for more information, and don't hesitate to contact EWA.
