LMCC Files Recommendations for Coordinating 800 MHz Interstitial Channels
Thursday, May 28, 2015 | Comments

The Land Mobile Communications Council (LMCC), an organization of mission-critical communications frequency coordinators, submitted to the FCC suggestions on how to coordinate 800 MHz mid-band interstitial channels.

In February, the FCC proposed new, full-power, interstitial 12.5-kilohertz “offset” channels in the 809 – 817/854 – 862 MHz band, subject to certain protections designed to safeguard 800 MHz incumbents from interference, and requested comment. Reply comments were due May 26.

LMCC said it was guided by several principals in developing the recommendations:
• Proceed conservatively and err, if at all, on the side of protecting the operations of incumbent 25-kilohertz systems.
• Establish protection criteria for all FCC-certified 800 MHz equipment options and be prepared to accommodate additional technologies that are expected to be certified in the near-term future.
• Propose as few modifications of 800 MHz technical rules as possible to simplify the coordination process to the extent feasible.
• Use FCC Rule Sections 90.621 and 90.635 as the starting point for rules governing the assignment of interstitial channels.

The LMCC recommendations are here.
