The author talks about confusion in the regulatory matter of narrowbanding in the land mobile radio (LMR) industry. An area of narrowbanding that is confusing is how digital narrowband systems will be conformed with a shared-radio environment. The Land Mobile Communications Council (LMCC) is an association comprised of different public-safety and non-public-safety frequency coordinators and Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) which took up this issue and had the proposal of deciding whether an incumbent licensee is an Affected Licensee.
