Compliance Guide for New 800 MHz FCC Rules Released
Monday, February 11, 2019 | Comments

The FCC published a compliance guide to help small entities with 800 MHz interests comply with new FCC rules announced in October.

New Part 90 rules open 800 MHz spectrum, with 318 new 800 MHz interstitial channels becoming available. The rules also make 40 expansion band (EB) and 40 guard band (GB) channels in 800 MHz available in National Public Safety Planning Advisory Committee (NPSPAC) regions where 800 MHz rebanding is completed.

The FCC said the guide is intended to help small entities — small businesses, organizations (non-profits) and governmental jurisdictions — comply with the revised rules.

“Although we have attempted to cover all parts of the rules that might be especially important to small entities, the coverage may not be exhaustive,” the FCC said. “This guide cannot anticipate all situations in which the rules apply. Furthermore, the commission retains the discretion to adopt case-by-case approaches, where appropriate, that may differ from this guide. Any decision regarding a particular small entity will be based on the statute and any relevant rules.”

The compliance guide is available here.
