FCC Narrowbanding Compliance – Time is running out to ensure compliance!
There is now less than 6 months left to comply with the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) mandate. This mandate requires that all public safety and industrial/business licensees convert existing 25 kHz radio systems to minimum narrowband 12.5 kHz efficiency technology by January 1, 2013.
The FCC will consider any radio equipment that does not meet the 12.5 kHz efficiency requirement by January 1, 2013 to be operating in violation of the FCC rules. All violations are subject to FCC enforcement action, which may include FCC admonishment, monetary fines, and loss of license.
You have very little time left to ensure your company and/or personal two-way radios are going to still be legal after the 1st of January 2013!!! Contact us today and we will be happy to help you understand the new FCC rules and determine if your hardware can be changed to the new narrowband frequencies. You may also have to apply for new FCC licenses (new licenses may take 2 months or more) and we can also do the licensing for you. Don’t wait for the last minute, contact us today!
