Is your system FCC compliant?

ALERT!!! For all U.S. businesses, educational, industrial, utility, city, county, state government, and public safety radio users and licensees...

Is YOUR VHF and/or UHF private two-way LMR voice dispatch, data, or SCADA radio system ready for the FCC's January 1, 2013 "narrowbanding" compliance date? Non-compliance may mean license cancellation!

Do you know the extent of your system's compliance? Will you need to replace radios only, or base stations and radios, or maybe only base stations? Maybe your equipment just needs reprogramming?

WCI can assist you with determining your needs and requirements.

Key Points About FCC Narrowbanding Requirements

Most current VHF/UHF (150-500 MHz) radio systems use wide-band channels.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has mandated that all non-federal licensees using wide-band radio systems migrate to narrowband (12.5 kHz) channels by January 1, 2013.

Entities that do not meet the deadline face the loss of communication capabilities!

Start planning now to migrate legacy equipment to narrowband systems by assessing your current radio equipment and applying for new or modified licenses.
