List of TV Stations to be Protected in T-Band Released by FCC
Thursday, February 18, 2021 | Comments

The FCC released a list of TV stations that LMR applicants in the T-band must protect when filing applications.

In 11 cities, the commission allocated spectrum in the T-band for sharing between broadcast television and public safety, industrial and land transportation private LMR (PLMR) services. PLMR use is permitted where these channels are not assigned to a TV station, though land mobile stations operating in this band must maintain fixed mileage separation from the transmitter sites of affected television stations.

Shortly after the 2012 enactment of the T-band mandate requiring the relocation of public safety eligibles from the T-band and auctioning of the spectrum, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) and the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) jointly imposed a suspension on the acceptance and processing of certain applications for services operating in the T-Band.

Following the recent repeal of the T-band mandate, the bureaus modified the suspension notice, stating that the bureaus would process pending applications and resume processing renewal requests within 30 days of modifying the suspension. The bureaus also announced a period starting February 18 for commission-certified frequency coordinators to pre-coordinate applications and a 90-day window beginning March 22 and ending June 21, allowing incumbents to seek expanded access to the T-Band if they propose narrowband operations.
