N.J. County Asks for T-Band, Part 22 Spectrum (9/7/12)
The commission is seeking comment on four applications for TV spectrum and an associated waiver request, and four applications for Part 22 spectrum and an associated waiver request filed by Somerset County, N.J. The county seeks waiver relief, pursuant to Section 1.925 of the FCC’s rules, to permit its use of certain UHF TV channels and unassigned Part 22 paging control channels in the UHF T-band spectrum.
Comments are due Sept. 20, and reply comments are due Sept. 27.
Specifically, Somerset seeks to “modify current licenses to adjust parameters, including new directional antenna patterns and add additional frequencies at new or existing sites that are more than 50 miles from Philadelphia.” Somerset is proposing to add eight new Part 90 frequency pairs, six of which are in the TV channel 19 band (500 – 506 MHz) and one Part 22 frequency to its existing licenses.
The proposed frequencies will be used as part of the county’s public-safety radio communications system. Somerset also updated its request in light of recent developments involving the 470 – 512 MHz band (T-band).
