FCC Narrowbanding



Be prepared for when the FCC Narrowbanding mandate goes into effect. Nationwide licensees operating on 25 kHz radios systems will soon need to operate using 12.5 kHz efficiency channels.

As a trusted leader in two-way communications, Motorola has been preparing for 12.5 kHz technology for more than a decade. We offer the broadest choice of two-way radio equipment, with close to 60 models capable of operating in 12.5 kHz efficiency. While Motorola radios purchased in the last ten years are likely dual-mode 25/12.5 kHz, older equipment may need to be replaced. Contact us today so we can help you prepare for a smooth and cost-effective transition.

Key Dates

The FCC has set the following deadlines for licensees, requiring migration to minimum 12.5 kHz efficiency systems.

RADIO USERS (LICENSEES)

January 1, 2011 - Applications for new licenses or for license modifications to expand existing service areas must specify at least 12.5 kHz efficiency. The FCC will no longer accept applications for systems operating at 25 kHz efficiency.

January 1, 2013 - All licensees must convert to and operate in at least 12.5 kHz efficiency. Existing dual mode (25/12.5 kHz) equipment must have the 25 kHz efficiency mode disabled via software. Equipment capable of operating only at 25 kHz efficiency must be replaced.

Note: The FCC has NOT set any date by which licensees must operate in 6.25 kHz efficiency in these bands.
