Understanding FCC Narrowbanding Requirements
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) started the Narrowbanding proceedings, also known as
Refarming, almost twenty years ago in an effort to promote more efficient spectrum use in the 150-174 MHz
(VHF) and 421-512 MHz (UHF) Part 90 radio frequency bands (which include Business, Industrial, Education,
Transportation, Public Safety, and State, Local, and Provincial Government two-way radio system licensees). The FCC has released numerous rulings during this time defining the requirements and mandating specific deadlines which you may need to take action on.
As of January 1, 2013, the Commission's rules will prohibit Industrial/Business and Public Safety Radio Pool licensees in the 150-174 MHz and 421-512 MHz bands from operating with wideband channels (unless their
equipment meets the narrowband efficiency standard), even if the license still lists a wideband emission
designator. Licensees operating in wideband mode after January 1, 2013 that have not received a waiver from
the Commission extending the deadline will be in violation of these rules.
What are the potential enforcement consequences to VHF/UHF licensees of failing to narrowband by
January 1, 2013?
Operation in violation of the Commission's rules may subject licensees to appropriate enforcement action, including admonishments, license revocation, and/or monetary forfeitures of up to $16,000 for each such violation or each day of a continuing violation and up to $112,500 for any single act or failure to act.
We are here to help you prepare for a smooth and cost-effective transition. While Motorola radios purchased in the last ten years are likely dual-mode 25/12.5 kHz, older equipment may need to be replaced. Today Motorola offers the broadest choice of two-way radio equipment, with close to 60 models capable of operating in 12.5 kHz efficiency.
