At the upcoming IWCE conference in Las Vegas, EWA President Mark Crosby will participate on two panels covering the realignment of the 900 MHz band and an update on T-Band. 

WCE will take place March 30 through April 3, 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. While you are at the show, visit EWA at booth number 1724.

Registration is open now.


During the 2019 EWA annual meeting, the Board of Directors authorized rate changes for the frequency coordination services listed below. The changes will become effective January 1, 2020. 

  • New/Modified Frequency or Pair/Site at 30-470 MHz: $195
  • New/Modified Frequency or Pair/Site at 800 MHz: $350

The rate for a new/modified frequency or pair/site at 900 MHz remains $300. Frequency coordination rates are exclusive of FCC filing fees.


The IIoT Coalition, of which EWA is a member, has taken the following positions to ensure access to spectrum:


In late October, Senators Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and Bob Casey (D-Penn.) reintroduced the Don’t Break Up the T-Band Act, which would repeal a provision of the 2012 Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act directing the FCC to auction off T-Band spectrum by 2021. Businesses and public safety entities in highly populated metropolitan areas in Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere use T-Band spectrum for critical communications.


On October 25, the FCC adopted an “Order and Sixth Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” in the 800 MHz rebanding proceeding. The action is described as “FCC Acts to Accelerate the Successful Completion of the 800 MHz Rebanding Process.” The Public Notice announcing the action states that over 2,000 licensees have been moved to new channels in the band with only 19 licensees remaining to be relocated.


After Initum Novum, LLC provided a less than fully responsive reply to an FCC request that they clarify their eligibility as a central station provider, the FCC rescinded its grant of authorization and returned the applications to pending status. EWA filed a letter on October 18 reminding the FCC that Initium Novum had not answered all of the FCC’s questions raised in their return letter and urged them to take no further action until the applicant responds accordingly.
