Virginia Receives 700 MHz Guidance from FCC

On February 27, the Acting Chief of the Policy and Licensing Division of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau released an Order clarifying a 2016 Order that authorized the Commonwealth of Virginia to relocate its existing 700 MHz narrowband operations to state-licensed 700 MHz narrowband channels with conditions to “coordinate operations on these channels with the Commonwealth of Kentucky.” The 2017 Order specifies the “field strength limits applicable to the state license channels used near the Kentucky-Virginia border.”  This clarification was provided to alleviate any uncertainty on the part of the licensees with implementation concerns.
