Both Region 35 700 and 800 MHz Public Safety RPC meetings are open to the public. All
eligible public safety providers in Region 35 may utilize these frequencies. It is essential that eligible

All interested parties wishing to participate in the planning for the use of public safety spectrum
in the 700 MHz and 800 MHz bands within Region 35 should plan to attend. For further information,
