TO HOLD 700 MHZ AND 800 MHZ NPSPAC MEETINGS

PR Docket No. 93-78

The Region 37 (South Carolina)1 Public Safety Regional Planning Committees (RPCs) will hold
two consecutive planning meetings on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. Beginning at 9:00 a.m., the 800
MHz NPSPAC Public Safety RPC will convene at the APCO/NENA Conference at the Hilton Hotel,
10000 Beach Club Drive, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The agenda for the 800 MHz meeting includes:
· Election of Region Chairperson
· Rebanding status
· Palmetto 800 additional sites
· Interoperability – discussion and clarification on required channels to be installed in
all radios
· Discuss back-to-back repeater dismantling after rebanding
Immediately following the 800 MHz Public Safety RPC meeting, the 700 MHz Public Safety
RPC will convene at the same location.
The agenda for the 700 MHz includes:
· Interoperability – discuss required channels to be installed in radios
· 4.9 GHz band – comments and discussion on possible FCC actions
· DVRS update on allowed frequencies and how they are to be used per the Region 37 Plan
Both Region 37 Public Safety RPCs’ meetings are open to the public. All eligible public safety
providers in Region 37 may utilize these frequencies. It is essential that eligible public safety agencies in
all areas of government, including state, municipality, county, and Native American Tribal be
represented in order to ensure that each agency’s future spectrum needs are considered in the allocation
process. Administrators who are not oriented in the communications field should delegate someone with
this knowledge to attend, participate, and represent their agency’s needs.

1 Region 37 (South Carolina) 700 MHz and 800 MHz regional planning area consists of the entire state of South
Carolina.

All interested parties wishing to participate in the planning for the use of public safety spectrum
in the 700 MHz, 800 MHz, and 4.9 GHz bands within Region 37 should plan to attend. For further
