LMCC Seeks Retention of Coordination Rules
Herndon, VA – In response to a Public Notice seeking comment on possible elimination or revision of Federal Communications Commission rules, the Land Mobile Communications Council (LMCC) suggested that two Part 90 rules, listed for review, should remain without modification.
Adopted in the year 2000, rule sections 90.35(b)(2)(ii) and (iii) facilitate coordination and compatibility between and among numerous Industrial (I/B) radio service users that may share certain Business/Industrial channels. Specifically, Rule 90.35(b)(2)(ii) identifies the designated certified frequency coordinator for an associated frequency but notes that any certified coordinator in the I/B Pool may coordinate applications on such frequencies with consent of the designated coordinator and that when two coordinators are listed, either coordinator may be used. Rule 90.35(b)(2)(iii) opens coordination of frequencies that were shared prior to the radio service consolidation to any certified I/B coordinator while protecting existing power, petroleum, railroad, and automobile emergency systems against interference.
