ABSTRACT
The article discusses the difficulties faced by frequency coordinators in narrowbanding below 512 megahertz (MHz) in the public safety community. It notes the public-safety spectrum offered at a premium in the UHF and VHF bands where the spectrum has greater range and ability to penetrate than in a 700 MHz or 800 MHz bands. It indicates their concern on the lack of awareness by public-safety officials of the narrowbanding mandate and its implications and consequences.
