LMCC Seeks Responsibility for Identifying VRS vs Telemetry Coordination Procedures at 173 MHz
Herndon, VA – The Land Mobile Communications Council (LMCC) has volunteered its services to the FCC to develop frequency coordination procedures on six 173 MHz channels which will serve to facilitate the use of this important spectrum that has been proposed for use by both vehicular repeater (VRS) and data telemetry systems. LMCC member organizations represent users who invest in both types of system technologies, and every Industrial/Business and Public Safety FCC-certified frequency advisory committee is a member of the LMCC, making it the optimum source for developing necessary spectrum management protocols that will protect both types of systems.
In its letter to the FCC requesting this responsibility, the LMCC stated that it “is capable of developing the necessary frequency coordination procedures quickly and with the full support of the organizations whose members use these very different system technologies that must be coordinated intelligently to derive maximum use of this spectrum while minimizing the potential for interference.”
The Land Mobile Communications Council is a nonprofit association of organizations that represent the wireless communications interests of public safety, critical infrastructure, business, industrial, transportation, private and common carriers as well as manufacturers of wireless communications equipment.
