FCC wants to clear the air in 800-MHz band

FCC wants to clear the air in 800-MHz band

The Federal Communications Commission has issued a best practices guide for handling the growing interference problems in the 800-MHz band shared by public-safety agencies and commercial mobile radio services.

The guide addresses both existing and planned systems.

The commission suspects the problem has several causes, including increased use of handheld devices by all 800-MHz users, recent expansion of commercial services, more intensive frequency reuse and the shift to digital technology.

The guide is free at www.apcointl.org.
