In the article, the author discusses the directive of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued in December 2009 for licensees to migrate to a narrowband their radio communications systems. He also clarifies some issues concerning the directive, such as that licensees are not mandated to change their existing channel centers when narrowbanding their system and the paging-only channels are exempted from the requirement. He also cites the deadline set by the FCC to comply with the directive.
