EWA Files Comments on SMR Regulation Inquiry

On May 15, 2017, EWA filed comments with the FCC in response to a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking where the FCC modified rules for cellular systems and also requested comments from the industry on whether Specialized Mobile Radio (SMR) should be moved from Part 90 to Part 27. In its comments, EWA explained that there are both site-based and geographically licensed SMR systems and that not all geographically licensed SMR systems are classified as or operate as cellular-like Enhanced Specialized Mobile Radio (ESMR) networks. It urged the FCC to leave all SMR systems, including ESMRs, in Part 90.
