Get FCC compliant by January 1, 2013.
Have You Narrowbanded Yet?
The deadline for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) narrowband mandate has past. Get FCC compliant now and stay within your budget!
All public safety and business radio users must convert existing 25kHz radio systems to a minimum narrowband efficiency technology. Star City Inc can help you successfully and easily comply with the FCC’s narrowband deadline.
What is Narrowbanding?
Narrowbanding is an effort to ensure more efficient use of the VHF and UHF spectrum by requiring all VHF and UHF Public Safety and Industrial/Business land mobile radio (LMR) systems to migrate to at least 12.5 kHz efficiency technology by January 1, 2013.
More specifically, all existing Part 90 radio systems operating in the 150-174 MHz and 421-512 MHz bands had until January 1, 2013 to convert those systems either to a maximum bandwidth of 12.5 kHz or to a technology that provides at least one voice path per 12.5 kHz of bandwidth or equivalent efficiency.
