FCC Seeks Comment on Part 80 Waiver Request in New York
Monday, March 23, 2015 | Comments

The FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau is seeking comment on a request for waiver of Part 80 power limits for the county of Columbia, New York, LMR radio operations on maritime frequencies.

Comments are due April 22 and reply comments are due May 8.

Motorola Solutions filed the request March 13 on behalf of the county for a waiver of Section 80.123(e) of the commission’s rules to permit operation of mobile units with 50-watt (W) transmitter power output (TPO) and 50 W effective radiated power (ERP) on VHF Public Coast (VPC) frequencies.

The waiver requests permission to partition and disaggregate VPC spectrum to the county to support a private LMR system for public-safety and homeland security operations.

“Motorola believes that the proposed operations at a higher TPO will not cause interference to maritime operations or adversely affect priority to maritime communications provided by licensees on the channels and in the geographic areas not being acquired by the county,” the filing said.

The filing is available here.
