FCC Approves "Non-standard" Offset Licensing for UHF band

WUWANEE, GA – The Chair of the NXDN Forum announces that the FCC has recently approved a change in narrowband licensing for non-standard offset frequencies in the UHF band.

It is with appropriate timing that in relation to this important spectrum resource management initiative, the FCC recently permitted the use of two, 6.25 kHz channels using NXDN 4 kHz emissions in a single 12.5 kHz channel for exclusive, trunked facilities, initially in the UHF band. NXDN always was ready to utilize and provide this added spectrum efficiency, if the licensing regulations were in place.

NXDN was developed to satisfy the FCC re-farming mandate for LMR spectrum in VHF and UHF bands. After a number of delays, this mandate will come into full effect on January 1st, 2013. This new decision, reached after 20 months of discussion and evaluation by the LMCC and related parties, now allows the full potential for NXDN to provide extra capacity to trunked Land Mobile systems users going forward. Discussions for the VHF band on similar rule making are still ongoing.

With less than a year now until the 2013 deadline for end users to implement narrowbanding, NXDN is perfectly positioned to provide a number of total systems solutions to your narrow banding requirements. With hundreds of thousands of NXDN terminals active worldwide, NXDN is a proven and reliable FCdigital two-way radio technology growing rapidly in products available, systems implemented and supporting entities of the protocol.
