Recent News


L and G Car Service of Patterson, New Jersey, recently received a “Notice of Violation” for operating on 154.8025 MHz, a frequency that is not authorized for use by any particular class of licensees. Of course, somebody knew better, perhaps the same radio shop that programmed channels within Barnstable High School’s radio system for which they were not eligible, as 154.8025 MHz is positioned dead between two adjacent channel public safety frequencies. The public safety licensees of course received interference and brought the matter to the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau.


As reported in an earlier edition of Insider, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on 900 MHz, which proposes to reconfigure the band to facilitate the use of wireless broadband by a variety of businesses while reserving spectrum for continued narrowband operations. 

Comments will be due 60 days after publication in the Federal Register and Reply Comments 30 days after that. The date of Federal Register publication is not yet known.

In response to inquiries from members and customers, EWA recently sent an update on the status of 800 MHz Interstitial and Central Station Alarm channels that were made available through a Report & Order adopted in 2018. Highlights of the update include:


The LMCC has submitted an ex parte letter to the FCC that included an updated Interference Contour Matrix (Matrix) based on F(50,10) curves adopted by the FCC in the Report and Order and Order (R&O). The Matrix provides derating factors based on proposed/incumbent emission designations to be applied when Frequency Advisory Committees (FACs) process applications for full-channel 25 kHz or adjacent channel 12.5 kHz “Interstitial” 800-MHz frequencies. 


Shared vs. exclusive channels, emission designators, conditional licenses – What are all these requirements and why are they important to my customers? 

At the EDMSSA Spring Meeting this year, you will have an opportunity to learn all this and more! EWA is offering two mini-courses that will provide key FCC rule sections and factors that can be of value when determining the spectrum needs of your customers. Understanding the FCC rules and different spectrum bands can assist with sales and associated strategic discussions.
