N.J. Towns Asks to Use UHF TV, Part 22 Spectrum (7/24/12)
The FCC requested comment on an application and waiver request from the township of Woodbridge, N.J., through its police department. Woodbridge seeks waiver relief to use for public-safety communications seven frequency pairs from the 500 – 506 MHz [TV channel 19] band segment located beyond 50 miles from Philadelphia. Woodbridge also seeks a waiver from FCC rules that designate two of the frequency pairs for Part 22 point-to-multipoint operations.
Woodbridge seeks to proceed with its request in light of recent developments involving the 470 – 512 MHz band (T-band).
Woodbridge details two ducting interference incidents on June 12 and July 3 that disabled the public-safety radio services operating on the channel 20 frequencies for most of the day. Woodbridge reiterated that it has no reasonable alternative and argues that “channel 19 frequencies are the only path to resolve the difficult and dangerous environment.”
Comments are due Aug. 7. The full notice is available here.
