Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands Complete 800 MHz Rebanding
Monday, July 11, 2016 | Comments

The 800 MHz Transition Administrator certified that 800 MHz band reconfiguration is complete in two more National Public Safety Planning Advisory Committee (NPSPAC) regions. The regions are 47 (Puerto Rico) and 48 (the U.S. Virgin Islands).

The FCC’s 800 MHz orders and rules provide that spectrum in the lower portion of the 800 MHz band that is vacated by licensees relocating to the ESMR band or by licensees relocating to the guard band be exclusively available to public-safety eligible applicants for the first three years following the completion of band reconfiguration of a NPSPAC region and to public-safety and critical infrastructure industry (CII) eligible applicants for the following two years.

The FCC created an 800 MHz Vacated Channel Search Engine (VCSE) that identifies 800 MHz channels in the interleaved band (809 – 815 MHz/854 – 860 MHz) that have been relinquished by Sprint as part of reconfiguration.
