PTC-220 to Have 220 MHz for Positive Train Control

In an Order of Modification released March 9, the FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau modified a 218-219 MHz license assigned to PTC-220, LLC to facilitate implementation of positive train control (PTC) by New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit), the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) and certain PTC-220 freight member railroads. PTC-220 acquired the license to provide NJ Transit and SEPTA access to spectrum that would help to mitigate the potential for interference between two PTC radio technologies in close geographic proximity.
