Additional spectrum for SRDs and RFID at UHF

Last week WGFM endorsed a recommendation to commence compatibility studies on the provision of additional spectrum for SRDs and RFID at UHF. This follows on from the successful ECC Workshop that was held at the beginning of April. This endorsement represents a very important milestone since from 2008 LPRA have been engaged in discussions with administrations to persuade them of the need for additional spectrum at UHF.
WGSE have now been requested to commence compatibility studies as soon as possible. The studies will include the bands 870-876 MHz for SRDs and the band 915-921 MHz for RFID. It is anticipated that these studies may take between 18-24 months.
