The Region 50 700 MHz Public Safety RPC meetings are open to the public. All eligible public
safety providers in Region 50 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.
All interested parties wishing to participate in planning for the use of public safety spectrum in
the 700 MHz band within Region 50 should plan to attend. For further information, please contact:
