FCC Announces Spectrum Notification Procedures

The FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau today announced the procedures for amateur radio operators to notify the Utilities Technology Council of their planned use of the 135.7-137.8 kilohertz (2200 meter) and 472-479 kHz (630 meter) bands, which have been allocated to the amateur radio service on a secondary basis.

The FCC adopted rules in March to facilitate such spectrum use, implementing decisions of the 2012 World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-12) (TR Daily, March 29).
