The article reports on the support expressed by officials for FM approvals for delaying the effective date for a standard requiring a redesign of portable handsets and the need for additional tower sites in many land mobile radio systems. The proposal was pushed during a meeting with the U.S. National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC). Though the attendance of FM Approvals pleased NPSTC members, other invited standards entities declined to participate.
