Groups Press FCC to Modify 800 MHz Band Item

Part 90 frequency coordinators are urging the FCC to adopt a Land Mobile Communications Council proposal in the draft 800 megahertz band item that the agency plans to consider at its Oct. 23 meeting (TR Daily, Oct. 16). In an ex parte filing in WP docket 16-261, the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International, the Enterprise Wireless Alliance, Forest Industries Telecommunications, and the Utilities Technology Council noted that in the draft order, “the Commission was declining to adopt the Land Mobile Communications Council (‘LMCC’) recommendation to use F(50,50) curves to assess both coverage and interference contours for 800 MHz interstitial channel assignments.” They urged the FCC to adopt that proposal.
