NPSTC, NRPC Recommend 6 Channels for Deployable Trunked Systems (3/3/15)
Tuesday, March 03, 2015 | Comments

The FCC is seeking comment on a recommended set of six channels available nationwide for 700 MHz deployable trunked systems. These channel sets were recommended by the National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) and the National Regional Planning Council (NRPC).

Comments are due April 2, and reply comments are due April 17.

Last October, the commission adopted a report and order revising certain rules governing the 700 MHz public-safety narrowband channels. The FCC released the narrowband reserve channels (24 12.5-kilohertz channels) to general use under the administration of the 700 MHz regional planning committees (RPCs) for the benefit of state and local public-safety licensees.

In the T-Band markets, the FCC released the reserve channels for general use under RPC administration with priority access given to T-Band incumbents within 80 kilometers of the city center coordinates as specified in Sections 90.303 and 90.3055 of the commission’s rules.

The FCC encouraged NPSTC and the NRPC to specify discrete channels for deployable trunked systems and technical standards for RPCs within three months of the publication of order in the Federal Register.

In February, NPSTC and the NRPC recommended a list of six sets of 700 MHz channels to be allocated nationwide for 700 MHz deployable systems. The FCC is seeking comment on the recommendations.

The recommendations are available here.
