EWA Meets with NAB on TV Channel 14 Repacking
EWA met with the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) to discuss how it may assist with communication efforts to current T-Band licensees regarding the repacking process following the Broadcast Incentive Auction of 2016. Presently, it is proposed that twenty-two (22) TV stations are to be “repacked” to channel 14 (470-476 MHz) which is directly adjacent to UHF land mobile radio users that operate within 460-469 MHz. Land mobile licensees have started to receive advisory alerts from an organization working on behalf of the affected TV stations regarding the potential for interference from the new Channel 14 stations and procedures that should be followed to address the opportunity for harmful adjacent channel interference from high-powered broadcast transmitters. EWA plans to contribute with outreach and educational efforts to wireless sales and service providers whose customers may be impacted by the FCC’s Channel 14 repacking assignments.
