INTRODUCTION

1.
By this action, we amend Parts 1, 2, 15, 25, 73, and 90 of the Commission's Rules in
order to make non-substantive, editorial revisions to the Table of Frequency Allocations (Allocation
Table),1 related Rule sections in Part 2,2 and certain service rules in the above-noted Rule Parts.3 This
action is not intended to modify or otherwise change any licensee's underlying legal rights and/or
responsibilities.4 In particular, we update the International Table of Frequency Allocations (International
Table) within the Allocation Table so that it reflects the allocation changes that were made at the World
Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2007) (WRC-07), which can be found in the WRC-07 Final
Acts
.5 We implement these amendments to the Allocation Table with the assistance and concurrence of
the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).6 This action serves as a

changes to the United States Table of Frequency Allocations (U.S. Table) that will be necessary to
implement the WRC-07 Final Acts.

II.

BACKGROUND

2.
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), under the auspices of the United
Nations, periodically convenes a World Radiocommunication Conference to address international
spectrum use. The Commission conducted its primary preparations for WRC-07 via its 2007 World
Radiocommunication Conference Advisory Committee (WAC), which held 11 public meetings between
January 30, 2004, and December 13, 2006, to evaluate and approve recommendations and preliminary
views that it later submitted for Commission consideration.7 The U.S. Proposals for WRC-07 that
resulted from this process addressed many of the items on the WRC-07 agenda.8 In addition, the United
States worked with other administrations to craft inter-American (i.e., Region 2) proposals.9
3.
The ITU convened WRC-07 from October 22-November 16, 2007, in Geneva,
Switzerland with 164 Member States, including the United States, participating.10 WRC-07 addressed
30 agenda items related to almost all terrestrial and space radio services and applications, and adopted
allocation changes that relate to radio frequency (RF) bands used by both Federal Government (Federal)
and non-Federal Government (non-Federal) entities in the United States. The ITU published the actions
taken at WRC-07 as the WRC-07 Final Acts and subsequently revised the ITU Radio Regulations to
include these actions.11
4.
On August 20, 2009, NTIA forwarded to the Commission its recommendations for
implementation of the WRC-07 Final Acts in the U.S. Table.12 To the extent practicable, we implement in
this Order those recommendations that are of a non-substantive and editorial nature.13


7 The Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) chartered the WAC to provide the Commission with advice and
technical support and to recommend proposals for WRC-07. Each of the advisory committee's five Informal
Working Groups (IWGs) discussed and drafted preliminary views and proposals and presented these drafts to the
full Advisory Committee. Drafts approved by the Advisory Committee became the Committee's recommendations
to the Commission. In addition, NTIA submitted letters to the Commission containing draft proposals that had been
developed by the Federal agencies. By public notice, the Commission requested comment on the WAC's
recommendations and the Federal proposals. After consideration by the U.S. Government, many of the
recommendations and proposals became a part of the United States' views and draft proposals that formed the basis
for discussions at bilateral, regional, and international meetings in preparation for WRC-07. See

The amendments in this instant Order are consistent with past Commission actions that
updated and clarified the Allocation Table and related Rules.14 As with those actions, this Order is
limited to non-substantive revisions. The Chief, Office of Engineering and Technology, and the
Managing Director adopt this Order under delegated authority.15
6.
The Allocation Table in Section 2.106 of the Commission's Rules is the Commission's
means of organizing and presenting how the radio spectrum is to be used in the United States and its
insular areas by one or more radio services under specified conditions.16 The Allocation Table is
displayed as a formatted graphical table of six columns that are divided into cells,17 and each cell
represents a specific frequency band (band). The Allocation Table is comprised of the International
Table,18 which is subdivided into the Region 1 Table (column 1 of Section 2.106), the Region 2 Table
(column 2 of Section 2.106), and the Region 3 Table (column 3 of Section 2.106),19 the U.S. Table,20
which is subdivided into the Federal Table of Frequency Allocations (Federal Table) (column 4 of
Section 2.106) and the non-Federal Table of Frequency Allocations (non-Federal Table) (column 5 of
Section 2.106),21 and the FCC Rule Part Cross References (column 6 of Section 2.106).22
7.
The International Table generally reflects the corresponding Regional allocation in the
ITU Radio Regulations (except as discussed herein), and international footnote references are shown

clarifications. Together, the NTIA WRC-07 Recommendations, NTIA WRC-07 Supplement, and the NTIA
coordination edits form the basis of the NTIA recommendations we discuss herein.

Frequency Allocations, Memorandum Opinion and Order, DA 99-2743, 15 FCC Rcd 3459 (2000) (First Table
Clean-up Order
); Order, DA 02-1872, 17 FCC Rcd 15263 (2002); and Amendment of Parts 1, 2, 25, 73, 74, 90, and

and to Various Service Rules, Memorandum Opinion and Order, DA 08-530, 23 FCC Rcd 3775 (2008) (Third Table
Clean-up Order
).
15 The Chief of OET is delegated authority to make non-substantive, editorial revisions to Part 2 of the
Commission's Rules and regulations. The Managing Director is delegated authority to make non-substantive,
editorial revisions to the Commission's Rules and regulations upon approval of the bureau primarily responsible for
the particular part or section involved. 47 C.F.R. 0.231(b), 0.241(h).
16 An allocation (of a frequency band) is defined as an entry in the Table of Frequency Allocations of a given
frequency band for the purpose of its use by one or more terrestrial or space radiocommunication services or the
radio astronomy service under specified conditions. This term shall also be applied to the frequency band
concerned. 47 C.F.R. 2.1(c).
17 We note that ITU Radio Regulations uses the term "box," instead of cell, in describing the Allocation Table. See
ITU Radio Regulation No. 5.24 ("Where, in a box of the Table in Section IV of this Article, a band is...").
18 The International Table is described in 47 C.F.R. 2.104.
19 47 C.F.R. 2.104(a), (h). For the allocation of radio frequencies, the ITU has divided the world into three
Regions and has codified the allocations for these Regions in its Table of Frequency Allocations. The United States
and most of its insular areas are in Region 2, which is essentially North America and South America. Region 1 is
generally Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the former Soviet Union, and Mongolia. Region 3 is the rest of Asia and
Australasia. See 47 C.F.R. 2.104(b) and Figure 1 for the ITU's official definitions and map of the Regions,
respectively.
20 The U.S. Table is described in 47 C.F.R. 2.105.
21 In the United States, radio spectrum may be allocated for either Federal or non-Federal use exclusively, or for
Federal/non-Federal shared use. 47 C.F.R. 2.105(b).

within the Regional Tables.23 The Federal Table contains the bands that NTIA administers, and the
non-Federal Table contains the bands that the Commission administers.24 The U.S. Table contains
references to United States (U.S.), non-Federal, Federal, and certain international footnotes.25 The text of
the international, U.S., non-Federal, and Federal footnotes immediately follow the Allocation Table.26
The FCC Rule Part Cross References contains cross references to the relevant FCC Rule Part(s), where
applicable.27 The Allocation Table includes the International Table, the Federal Table, and the FCC Rule
Part Cross References for informational purposes only.28 In the paragraphs below, we discuss the
modifications we make to each of the tables described above.
8.
When we refer to U.S., non-Federal, and Federal footnotes in this Order, we will use the
same nomenclature specified in Section 2.105 of the Commission's Rules and employed in the U.S.
Table.29 For the international footnotes we reference in this Order, however, we will substitute a different
nomenclature to help identify those footnotes. Specifically, the ITU Radio Regulations refer to
international footnote 5.53 as Radio Regulation (RR) No. 5.53, which is simply abbreviated as
"No. 5.53." Instead of using this abbreviation, however, we will use the abbreviation "RR 5.53."30 We
believe this will more clearly indicate that we are referring to an international footnote.31 Prior to


23 47 C.F.R. 2.104(h).
24 47 C.F.R. 2.105(a).
25 Where an international footnote is applicable, without modification, to both Federal and non-Federal operations,
the Commission places the footnote in both the Federal Table and the non-Federal Table and the international
footnote is binding on both Federal users and non-Federal licensees. If, however, an international footnote pertains
to a service allocated only for Federal or non-Federal use, the Commission places the international footnote only in
the affected Table. Any footnote consisting of "5." followed by one or more digits, e.g., 5.53, denotes an
international footnote. 47 C.F.R. 2.105(d)(5)(i). U.S. footnotes appear in both the Federal and non-Federal
Tables. Any footnote consisting of the letters "US" followed by one or more digits, e.g., US7, denotes a stipulation
affecting both Federal and non-Federal operations. 47 C.F.R. 2.105(d)(5)(ii). Non-Federal footnotes appear solely
in the non-Federal Table. Any footnote consisting of the letters "NG" followed by one or more digits, e.g., NG2,
denotes a stipulation applicable only to non-Federal operations. 47 C.F.R. 2.105(d)(5)(iii). Federal footnotes
appear solely in the Federal Table. Any footnote consisting of the letter "G" followed by one or more digits, e.g.,
G2, denotes a stipulation applicable only to Federal operations. 47 C.F.R. 2.105(d)(5)(iv).
26 47 C.F.R. 2.106 INTERNATIONAL FOOTNOTES, UNITED STATES (US) FOOTNOTES, NON-FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
(NG) FOOTNOTES, and FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (G) FOOTNOTES.

29 See 47 C.F.R. 2.105(d)(5)(ii), (iii), and (iv). See also n.25, supra.
30 As discussed above, Table 1 shows examples of the footnote nomenclature we will use when referring to an
international, U.S., non-Federal, or Federal footnote in the Allocation Table, respectively.

31 In addition, we note that the citation format is exactly the same for all footnotes to the Allocation Table, except for
the specific footnote type and number (e.g., RR 5.53 is formally cited as 47 C.F.R. 2.106, international
footnote 5.53). Instead of using this formal citation format for the footnotes referenced in this Order, we will
dispense with such footnote citations herein.

WRC-07, the U.S. Table included references to 130 international footnotes. WRC-07 modified 19 and
suppressed (i.e., removed) 4 of those footnotes. In the paragraphs below, we also discuss those footnotes.

III.

DISCUSSION

A.

Updates to Display Format of the Allocation Table

1.

Frequency Nomenclature

9.
In Radio Regulation No. 2.1 of the 2008 Edition of the ITU Radio Regulations,
frequencies are expressed in kilohertz (kHz) up to and including "3 000" kHz (i.e., 3,000 kHz). In
accordance with ITU Radio Regulation No. 2.1, we revise the Commission's Allocation Table by
expressing frequencies in the High Frequency (HF) spectrum from 3025 to 27500 kHz in megahertz
(MHz), i.e., from 3.025 to 27.5 MHz.32 This action simplifies the Allocation Table, minimizes a style
difference between the ITU Allocation Table and the Commission's Allocation Table33 and should help
avoid any confusion.34 WRC-07 added an explanatory note to the ITU Radio Regulations allowing
reasonable departures from this style convention where it would pose serious difficulties (ITU Radio
Regulation No. 2.1). Thus, in this Order, we reproduce that explanatory note in Section 2.101(b).35
2.

Placement of U.S. Footnotes

10.
In the First Table Clean-up Order, the Commission adopted the ITU's placement
methodology for footnote references in the U.S. Table.36 Thus, footnote references which appear in the
U.S. Table below the allocated services in a band apply to more than one of the allocated services.
Footnote references which appear to the right of a service allocation name are applicable only to that
particular service.37 We continue to believe that associating a footnote reference with its pertinent service
will assist readers in more easily understanding the restrictions and/or other information pertaining to that
allocation.
11.
At NTIA's request, however, we make a refinement to our U.S. footnote placement policy.
Specifically, in the case of bands with the same service allocation name listed in both the Federal and


32 The Commission reproduces ITU Radio Regulation No. 2.1 in its Rules as Section 2.101, which is titled
"Frequency and wavelength bands." Section 2.101 states that, inter alia, frequencies shall be expressed in kilohertz
(kHz) for all frequencies up to and including 3 000 kHz (i.e., 3,000 kHz) and that frequencies shall be expressed in
megahertz (MHz) for all frequencies above 3 MHz, up to and including 3 000 MHz (i.e., 3,000 MHz). We decline
to split the band 2850-3025 kHz, and thus, the band 3025-3155 kHz is the first band in the U.S. Allocation Table
expressed in MHz, i.e., 3.025-3.155 MHz. See 47 C.F.R. 2.101.
33 In the ITU Allocation Table, a space is added to those frequencies and bands that contain four or five whole
numbers, e.g., 26 175 kHz (not 26,175 kHz or 26.175 MHz). In the Commission's Allocation Table, no space is
added.
34 Section 2.101(c) of the Rules also states that, in communications between administrations and the ITU, no names,
symbols, or abbreviations should be used for the various bands other than those specified in Section 2.101.
35 The second paragraph in ITU Radio Regulation No. 2.1 reads as follows: "However, where adherence to these
provisions would introduce serious difficulties, for example in connection with the notification and registration of
frequencies, the lists of frequencies and related matters, reasonable departures may be made." WRC-07 also added
the following note (ITU Radio Regulation No. 2.1.1) to this paragraph, which we reproduce in Section 2.101(b): "In
the application of the Radio Regulations, the Radiocommunication Bureau uses the following units: kHz for
frequencies up to 28 000 kHz inclusive[;] MHz for frequencies above 28 000 kHz up to 10 500 MHz inclusive[;
and] GHz for frequencies above 10 500 MHz."
36 See First Table Clean-up Order, 15 FCC Rcd 3463 5.
37 Prior to that 1999 action, the Commission generally placed all footnotes at the bottom of a cell.

DA 10-762

non-Federal Tables, we add the condition that for a U.S. footnote to be placed to the right of the service
allocation name in the Federal Table, the U.S. footnote must contain a stipulation that is applicable to
Federal operations. Similarly, for a U.S. footnote to be placed to the right of the service allocation name
in the non-Federal Table, the U.S. footnote must contain a stipulation that is applicable to non-Federal
operations. As an example, US13 provides for non-Federal use of 48 frequencies in 3 Federal bands
(162.0125-173.2, 406.1-410, and 410-420 MHz). Under the Commission's current policy, US13 is
placed at the bottom of the cell in the non-Federal Table, but is placed to the right of the fixed service
(FS) allocation entry in the Federal Table, i.e., "FIXED US13." Because US13 provides only for
non-Federal use, however, we believe it is misleading that US13 is placed to the right of the Federal FS
allocation entry. Accordingly, we modify the Commission's U.S. footnote display policy, as described
above, to account for such a scenario. Consequently, we move US13 to the bottom of the cell in the
Federal Table. Similarly, we move US319 (which restricts Federal use of certain mobile-satellite service
(MSS) allocations to earth stations operating with non-Federal space stations) to the bottom of the cell in
the non-Federal Table in the bands 148-149.9, 400.15-401, and 2483.5-2500 MHz.
3.

Basing Domestic Footnote Numbers on Frequency Order

12.
The Commission's practice for adding domestic (i.e., U.S., non-Federal, and Federal)
footnotes to the U.S. Table has generally been to number these footnotes in ascending order, based solely
on the date when the footnote was adopted (i.e., in chronological order). As a result, because there are
currently only 176 actual U.S. footnotes to the U.S. Table within the existing range of U.S. footnote
numbers (i.e., 1-402) there are 226 unused U.S. footnote numbers.38
13.
International footnotes to the ITU Allocation Table, however, are organized and
numbered in frequency order (i.e., footnotes are numbered according to the relative place in the radio
spectrum of the frequency(ies) to which they refer). For example, currently the first international footnote
(RR 5.53) concerns operations below 9 kHz and the last international footnote (RR 5.565) concerns
operations in the band 275-1000 GHz. Generally, when a World Radiocommunication Conference adopts
a new international footnote, the Conference adds the footnote to the ITU Allocation Table between two
existing footnotes, and, if necessary, it appends a letter (or multiple letters) to the lower-adjacent
footnote's number in order to not disturb the existing frequency order and footnote numbering (e.g.,
WRC-07 added RR 5.430A between RR 5.430 and RR 5.431). However, in some cases, a Conference
may decide to renumber an international footnote in order to preserve the sequential order. For example,
WRC-07 added three bands (137-138, 387-390, and 400.15-410 MHz) to RR 5.347A which are below the
lowest band that was listed in RR 5.347A prior to WRC-07 (i.e., 1452-1492 MHz). Consequently,
WRC-07 renumbered RR 5.347A as RR 5.208B. In Appendix B, we show the complete list of active
international footnotes. We do not include the international footnotes that WRC-07 suppressed (i.e.,
removed) or show the text of those that have expired.
14.
In this Order, on a going-forward basis, we implement a new numbering system for
domestic footnotes that is based on frequency order. Specifically, for a new (including "place-holder")39
domestic footnote, we will number the footnote in frequency order. For a modified domestic footnote, the


38 See 47 C.F.R. 2.106 UNITED STATES (US) FOOTNOTES.
39 A "place-holder" footnote is a new U.S. footnote that we create, as needed, to replicate the text of an international
footnote that existed prior to modification of the footnote at a World Radiocommunication Conference. Such a
footnote is inserted in the U.S Table in place of the international footnote that was modified, but which the
Commission has not had the opportunity to consider, via a rulemaking proceeding, whether to include in the
U.S. Table. The revised international footnote continues to be displayed in the International Table, but not the
U.S. Table. If the Commission subsequently determines that a revised international footnote can be added without
modification to the U.S. Table, then it will substitute the revised international footnote for the place-holder footnote,
which it will consequently remove from the Rules.

Commission will consider whether to renumber the footnote in frequency order in the proceeding
addressing the modifications to the footnote. Such actions will better align the U.S. Table with the
ITU Allocation Table, which will bring greater consistency to Section 2.106, and thereby make the
Allocation Table more useful to the public and spectrum managers. In addition, we believe that
numbering domestic footnotes in frequency order will make them easier for readers to view because, in
many instances, the footnotes from cells with multiple footnotes will be grouped together in the United
States, non-Federal Government, and Federal Government footnotes that follow the Allocation Table in
Section 2.106 of the Commission's Rules.40 However, in order to ensure that the transition is
non-disruptive for the public and spectrum managers, we restrict the renumbering in frequency order to
those footnotes that we significantly revise in this Order.
15.
We do, however, make an exception to our new domestic footnote numbering policy.
Specifically, if a new, place-holder, or modified domestic footnote is based, in part, on an international
footnote, we will number the domestic footnote by using, where possible, the related international
footnote's number (i.e., if there is not an existing domestic footnote with the same number as the related
international footnote). For example, for the place-holder footnotes discussed in this Order, we base the
numbering on the related international footnote's number.41 For modified domestic footnotes, the
Commission will consider in the associated proceeding whether to renumber the footnote with a related
international footnote's number. We believe this action will assist both the public and spectrum managers
by improving the organization and readability of the U.S. Table and by "pointing to" the international
footnote on which, in part, the domestic footnote is based. Consequently, we amend the domestic
footnote numbering nomenclature of the U.S. Table specified in Section 2.105(d)(5)(ii), (iii), and (iv) of
the Commission's Rules to allow for the use of a letter (or letters) after the digits of a domestic footnote
number.42 Similarly, we amend Section 2.105(d)(5)(i) of the Commission's Rules to recognize that a
World Radiocommunication Conference may append a letter, or letters, after the digits of the footnote
number when it adds a new international footnote to the ITU Allocation Table. In order to ensure that this
transition is non-disruptive for the public and spectrum managers, at this time, we renumber based on a
related international footnote's number only those footnotes that we significantly revise in this Order.
16.
In this Order, we add 14 U.S. footnotes and 3 non-Federal footnotes to the Allocation
Table and reuse 2 existing U.S. footnote numbers (US226, US269). Specifically, consistent with our new
frequency-order footnote numbering policy, we: 1) add a new footnote US22 in order to reflect in the
U.S. Table 28 frequencies designated for disaster communications and 40 frequencies designated for long
distance communications; 2) renumber 7 revised footnotes US216, US294, US335, US399, NG19,
NG128, and NG142; and 3) combine two footnotes US351 and US352 (US37). However, for the
following new or renumbered footnotes, we assign numbers based on a related international footnote's
number: 1) the combination of US366, US367, and US396 into a single footnote (US136); 2) a new
footnote US142 that, inter alia, highlights the availability of the high frequency broadcasting (HFBC)
bands 7.2-7.3 and 7.4-7.45 MHz in Region 3 insular areas for U.S. international broadcasters; 3) four new
place-holder footnotes that replicate the pre-WRC-07 text of four international footnotes which WRC-07
either modified or suppressed;43 4) revised versions of US217 and US229; 5) the combination of US7 and
NG135 into a single footnote (US270); and 6) the combination of US269 and US311 into a single
footnote (US385). The specific domestic footnotes discussed in this Order that we number (or renumber)

Updates to International Table

17.
In this Order, we update the International Table to reflect Article 5, Section IV of the
ITU Radio Regulations, Edition of 2008, except as described herein.44 During our preparation of this
Order, we discovered several display errors in the ITU Allocation Table. Consistent with past practice,
we will not replicate typographical or other errors that hold the potential to cause reader confusion or
convey misleading information.45 Accordingly, we incorporate the following corrections and updates in
the International Table in Section 2.106 of the Commission's Rules. First, we list in alphabetical order
according to the French language: 1) the primary services in the Region 2 Table followed by the
secondary service for the band 698-806 MHz; 2) the services in the Region 1 Table for the band
790-862 MHz; and 3) the services in the bands 960-1164, 1300-1350, 9300-9500, and 9500-9800 MHz.
Second, we place RR 5.345 below the allocated services in the Region 1, Region 2, and Region 3 Tables
for the band 1452-1492 MHz. Third, we merge the bands 2120-2160 and 2160-2170 MHz in the
Region 1 and Region 3 Tables to form the band 2120-2170 MHz because those bands list the same
services and footnotes.46 We base these corrections and updates upon the format specified in the
ITU Radio Regulations.47
18.
With regard to international footnotes, we make the following 34 corrections: 1) revise
the text of 32 international footnotes (5.58, 5.141, 5.143C, 5.165, 5.169, 5.173, 5.185, 5.201, 5.202,
5.206, 5.247, 5.279A, 5.281, 5.319, 5.322, 5.342, 5.352A, 5.388B, 5.389F, 5.400, 5.417A, 5.425, 5.439,
5.447F, 5.453, 5.468, 5.494, 5.500, 5.508A, 5.509A, 5.522C, and 5.549) so that it fully comports with the
ITU Radio Regulations;48 2) capitalize "Earth" in RR 5.335; and 3) change "service" to "services" in the
last sentence of RR 5.482. In addition, we make the following simplifications in 13 international
footnotes: 1) update the cross references to 8 ITU Resolutions (Resolutions 33, 124, 143, 212, 221, 222,
223, and 528) in 8 international footnotes (5.345, 5.353A, 5.357A, 5.388, 5.388A, 5.396, 5.462A, and
5.516B) to the version listed in Volume 3 of the 2008 Edition of the ITU Radio Regulations;49 2) remove


44 The differences that are discussed in this section between the ITU Allocation Table and the International Table in
Section 2.106 of the Commission's Rules are listed in note 1 to the FCC Online Table of Frequency Allocations,
which is available at https://www.fcc.gov/oet/spectrum/table/fcctable.pdf. We have previously made several
corrections and updates to the FCC Online Table. First, on March 5, 2009, we corrected the text of 32 international
footnotes. Second, on March 12, 2009, we removed 21 of the 26 international footnotes that WRC-07 suppressed.
Third, on March 23, 2009, we moved RR 5.562F to the bottom of the cell in the International and U.S. Tables in
accordance with the ITU Allocation Table; and, in the Region 1 Table, we merged the bands 2120-2160
and 2160-2170 MHz. See the FCC Allocation History File, which is available at
https://www.fcc.gov/oet/spectrum/table/FAHF.pdf. For completeness, we note that there are also certain style
differences between Section 2.106 and the ITU Radio Regulations. First, in the numbers specifying frequency bands,
we do not add a space between the third and fourth digits. Second, for international footnotes, we do not bold cross
references to the ITU Radio Regulations, nor do we indicate the history of an international footnote. (For example,
the ITU Radio Regulations lists suppressed RR 5.63 with the notation "(SUP WRC-97)," whereas Section 2.106
does not list this footnote.)
45 See, e.g., Third Table Clean-up Order, 23 FCC Rcd at 3776 n.15 (correcting several display errors).
46 We previously merged these bands in the Region 3 Table. WRC-07 suppressed RR 5.392A, and as a consequence
of its removal from the band 2160-2170 MHz, we are now also simplifying the Region 1 Table.
47 See ITU Radio Regulations at Nos. 1.51, 5.24, 5.25, 5.26, 5.48, and 5.51.
48 We discovered minor discrepancies in these footnotes (e.g., Member State names and their placement) during our
preparation of this Order, and on March 5, 2009, we corrected these discrepancies in the FCC Online Table.
49 Although these eight international footnotes contain a "Note by the Secretariat" stating that a subsequent WRC
updated a Resolution(s), the 2008 Edition of the ITU Radio Regulations contains only the current version of these
Resolution(s) (see Volume 3). In order to assist readers, we revise the text of these international footnotes in Section
2.106 to directly list the version that is currently shown in the ITU Radio Regulations. Table 4, below, shows the
existing and updated cross references. See Appendix B for the complete text of these footnotes.

5.139, 5.141C, and 5.143E) from Section 2.106;50 and 3) do not show note 1 of RR 5.208A (which states
that this footnote was previously numbered as RR 5.347A). For the 15 international footnotes that we
have either corrected or simplified in Section 2.106, we add the notation "(FCC)" to the end of the
footnote.
19.
We also partially implement a notation scheme used in the ITU Radio Regulations in the
Commission's list of international footnotes. Specifically, the abbreviation "(WRC-07)" to the right of an
international footnote signifies that WRC-07 modified or added the footnote.51

Updates to International Footnotes in the U.S. Table

1.

Suppressed International Footnotes

20.
WRC-07 suppressed three international footnotes (5.83, 5.199, and 5.476) that the
U.S. Table currently references. In this Order, we remove the references to these international footnotes
from the U.S. Table. Prior to WRC-07, RR 5.83 stated that 500 kHz is an international distress and
calling frequency for Morse radiotelegraphy. Because the Commission previously removed any reference
to 500 kHz as a distress and safety frequency from Part 80 of its Rules, we remove the reference to
RR 5.83 from the U.S. Table.52 Prior to WRC-07, RR 5.199 allocated two 100-kilohertz bands to the
MSS for the reception on board satellites of emissions from emergency position-indicating radiobeacons

50 The ITU's 7 MHz Realignment plan became effective on March 29, 2009. Thus, the ITU's transition plan, which
is contained in these four international footnotes, is now moot, and the international allocations listed in the
Regional Tables are fully effective. See the 7 MHz Realignment discussion at paras. 30-42, infra.
51 In Table 5, below, are the 25 international footnotes that WRC-07 suppressed. Although these footnotes are listed
in the ITU Radio Regulations with the notation "(SUP WRC-07)", we decline to follow this convention and will
not list these footnotes in Section 2.106.

(EPIRBs) transmitting on 121.5 and 243 MHz.53 Because the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) ceased satellite processing of 121.5/243 MHz emergency beacons' signals on
February 1, 2009,54 at the request of NTIA, we remove the references to RR 5.199 from the U.S. Table.55
Prior to WRC-07, RR 5.476 contained a prohibition on the use of shipborne radars in the band
9300-9320 MHz (other than those existing on January 1, 1976). Because this international prohibition
expired on January 1, 2001, and because the Commission has already removed the prohibition from
Part 80 of its Rules, we remove the references to RR 5.476 from the U.S. Table.56
2.

Modified International Footnotes

21.
WRC-07 modified 19 international footnotes that are currently referenced in the
U.S. Table. In this section, we review these international footnotes. Three of these international
footnotes 5.444, 5.444A, and 5.519 embody substantive allocation changes that, in order to become
effective in the United States, would need to be adopted in a future rulemaking proceeding. Because in
this Order we update the text of all international footnotes to reflect the WRC-07 Final Acts, we also
create three place-holder U.S. footnotes US444, US444A, and US519 that replicate the pre-WRC-07
text of RR 5.444, RR 5.444A, and RR 5.519, respectively, and replace the references to these three
international footnotes in the U.S. Table. By these actions, we maintain the status quo in the U.S. Table
until such time as the Commission may consider the substantive modifications that WRC-07 made to
these three international footnotes. We address these three international footnotes in the following
paragraphs.
22.
Prior to WRC-07, RR 5.444 stated that, in the band 5030-5150 MHz, the requirements of
the international standard system (microwave landing system or MLS) take precedence over other uses of
this band. WRC-07 revised RR 5.444 such that MLS requirements take precedence over other uses only
in the band 5030-5091 MHz. Thus, we add new place-holder US444 to the list of U.S. footnotes and, in
the Federal and non-Federal Tables, we replace the references to RR 5.444 with that of US444. The text
of new US444 is the same as the pre-WRC-07 text of RR 5.444, except that we revise the reference to
"No. 5.444A" to read "US444A."57
23.
Prior to WRC-07, RR 5.444A stated, inter alia, that in the band 5091-5150 MHz, after
January 1, 2012, no new assignments will be made to earth stations providing feeder links for
non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) systems; and that, prior to January 1, 2018, MLS requirements which
cannot be met in the band 5000-5091 MHz take precedence over other uses of this band. WRC-07
revised RR 5.444A by extending the date after which no new assignments will be made to earth stations
providing NGSO feeder links to January 1, 2016, and by suppressing MLS precedence over other uses of
the band 5091-5150 MHz. Thus, to preserve the status quo in the U.S. Table, we add new place-holder


53 The radiobeacons operating at 243 MHz were primarily used by the military services.
54 See NOAA's Search and Rescue Satellite-Aided Tracking (SARSAT) webpage at http://www.sarsat.noaa.gov.
55 The Commission previously amended its Part 80 rules to phase out the use of 121.5 MHz EPIRBs, and the use of
such EPIRBs has been discontinued since December 31, 2006. See Maritime R&O, 17 FCC Rcd at 6761-62 47;
47 C.F.R. 80.1053, 80.1055, 80.1059. See NTIA WRC-07 Recommendations at 14 and 19.
56 At the recommendation of the U.S. Coast Guard, the Commission removed this restriction from Part 80 in 2002.
See Maritime R&O, 17 FCC Rcd at 6770 75.
57 In addition, at the recommendation of NTIA, in the U.S. Table, we sub-divide the band 5030-5250 MHz into three
bands 5030-5091, 5091-5150, and 5150-5250 MHz and as a consequence of replacing RR 5.444 with US444, we
simplify the U.S. Table by displaying common allocations in two bands (5030-5091 and 5091-5150 MHz) as a
combined Federal/non-Federal entry. We also remove the unneeded reference to US344 in the band
5000-5091 MHz. See NTIA WRC-07 Recommendations at 37. See Appendix B for these revisions to the
U.S. Table.

footnote US444A to the list of U.S. footnotes and, in the non-Federal Table, we replace the reference to
RR 5.444A with that of US444A. The text of new US444A is the same as the pre-WRC-07 text of
RR 5.444A, except that we added the phrase "for non-Federal use."58 In order for the WRC-07
modifications to RR 5.444 and RR 5.444A to become effective in the United States, the Commission
must adopt them in a future rulemaking proceeding.
24.
Prior to WRC-07, RR 5.519 stated that the band 18.1-18.3 GHz is also allocated to the
meteorological-satellite service (space-to-Earth) on a primary basis, that use of this allocation is limited to
geostationary orbit (GSO) satellites, and that the power flux-density (pfd) limits must be in accordance
with the provisions of Article 21, Table 21-4.59 WRC-07 expanded this allocation by 100 megahertz in all
Regions, and removed the cross reference to the pfd limits in Table 21-4. Thus, we add new place-holder
US519 to the list of U.S. footnotes and, in the Federal and non-Federal Tables, we replace the references
to RR 5.519 with that of US519. The text of new US519 is the same as the pre-WRC-07 text of
RR 5.519. In order for the WRC-07 allocation decision contained in RR 5.519 to become effective in the
United States, the Commission must adopt it in a future rulemaking proceeding.
25.
Prior to WRC-07, RR 5.227 designated the frequency 156.525 MHz exclusively to digital
selective calling (DSC) for distress, safety, and calling. WRC-07, however, took the text from RR 5.227,
modified it slightly and combined it with the modified text of RR 5.226, and then reused the footnote
number 5.227 for another allocation.60 In combining the revised requirements for 156.525 MHz with the
modified text of RR 5.226, WRC-07 highlighted the 156.525 MHz MMS frequency, additionally
specified a 75-kilohertz allocation centered at 156.525 MHz (i.e., 156.4875-156.5625 MHz) for the MMS,
and restricted the use of this allocation to distress, safety, and calling via DSC. In addition, WRC-07
revised Appendix 18 of the ITU Radio Regulations to require that all precautions be taken to avoid
harmful interference to the frequency 156.525 MHz when using the adjacent frequencies (156.500 and
156.550 MHz). In order to preserve the status quo in the U.S. Table, we add a new place-holder footnote
US226 to the list of U.S. footnotes that replicates the pre-WRC-07 text of RR 5.226 and RR 5.227
that is applicable to the 156.2475-156.7625 MHz band, and, in the Federal and non-Federal Tables, we
replace the references to RR 5.226 and RR 5.227 in that band (156.2475-156.7625 MHz) with that of
US226.61 In order for the WRC-07 allocation decisions now in RR 5.226 and RR 5.227 to become
effective in the United States, the Commission must adopt them in a future rulemaking proceeding.
26.
WRC-07 modifications to the remaining 14 international footnotes are minor in nature,
and require no further action on our part beyond updating the text of these footnotes to reflect the text
now specified in the ITU Radio Regulations. Specifically, nine of the modified international footnotes


58 It is necessary to add this phrase because the Commission added the reference to RR 5.444A only to the
non-Federal Table (i.e., the NGSO MSS feeder-link allocation is not available to Federal agencies).
59 Prior to WRC-07, RR 5.519 required that the pfd limit be in accordance with Article 21, Table 21-4. WRC-07,
however, removed this pointer. Because the pfd limits in Table 21-4 are a separate ITU requirement, this change is
non-substantive.
60 WRC-07 reused RR 5.227 to additionally allocate the bands 156.4875-156.5125 and 156.5375-156.5625 MHz to
the FS and land mobile service (LMS) on a primary basis.
61 Because WRC-07 modified and moved the text of RR 5.227 (and thus the international MMS allocation at
156.525 MHz) to RR 5.226 and reused the number 5.227 for another allocation, the new place-holder footnote is
related to RR 5.226. Thus, we number this place-holder footnote as US226. As a simplification for US226,
however, the reference to Appendix 13 of the ITU Radio Regulations, previously referenced in RR 5.226 and
RR 5.227 but suppressed at WRC-07, is not shown. Not showing this reference is a non-substantive change because
Appendix 13 provided a transitional means of interconnection between the Global Maritime Distress and Safety
System (GMDSS) and non-GMDSS platforms. In the United States, this transition concluded on February 1, 1999.
See 47 C.F.R. 80.1065(b)(4).

Updates to U.S. Table and Domestic Footnotes Below 30 MHz

1.

Fixed Use of Maritime Radiotelephony Frequencies

27.
Section 80.371 of the Rules describes the radiotelephony working frequencies that are
assignable to ship and public coast stations. Paragraph (a) of Section 80.371 contains a table that
describes the working carrier frequency pairs in the band 2000-4000 kHz. NG19 states that fixed stations
associated with the maritime mobile service (MMS) may be authorized, for purposes of communication
with coast stations, to use the frequencies that are assignable to ship stations in this band on the condition
that harmful interference will not be caused to services operating in accordance with the Table of
Frequency Allocations.
28.
Because NG19 does not explicitly state the bands to which it applies, it may not be
readily apparent to readers that it applies to the three bands in which it is listed in the U.S. Table (i.e.,
2000-2065, 2107-2170, and 2194-2495 kHz).63 In order to assist readers, we explicitly list the above
three bands in NG19, and provide a cross reference to Section 80.371(a) for the list of available carrier
frequencies. Also, NG19 applies to two services. Accordingly, in the bands 2107-2170 and
2194-2495 kHz, we move the reference to NG19 in the non-Federal Table from the right of the mobile
except aeronautical mobile service (MS except AMS) allocation to the bottom of the cell. Because we
revise NG19, we also renumber this footnote in frequency order as NG7. See Appendix B for the revised
text of NG7.
29.
We also note that the band 2000-3000 kHz is listed in the Public Safety Pool Frequency
Table in Section 90.20(c)(3) and that its use is restricted to fixed stations that operate in accordance with
Limitation 75.64 We further note that only the bands 2107-2170 and 2194-2495 kHz in the U.S. Table
contain the appropriate cross references in the FCC Rule Part Cross References column of the
Allocation Table. Accordingly, for the band 2000-2065 kHz, we add "Private Land Mobile (90)" in the
FCC Rule Part Cross References.

The 7 MHz Realignment

30.
On March 10, 2005, the Commission implemented pertinent allocation decisions from the
World Radiocommunication Conference (Geneva, 2003) (WRC-03) and updated certain of its service
Rules.65 One of the most significant decisions in that action was the 7 MHz Realignment.66 Because the


62 See n.61, supra.
63 Of the 43 frequencies listed in the ship transmit column of Section 80.371(a), only 2086 kHz (which is available
in the Caribbean) is not included in 1 of the 3 bands.

7 MHz Realignment transition period concluded on March 29, 2009, we take several actions to simplify
and finalize the allocation display in the bands that comprise 6.765-8.1 MHz.67
a.

Non-Interference Basis (NIB) Operations in Eight HFBC Bands

31.
Until March 29, 2009, the band 7.35-7.4 MHz (i.e., the upper half of the 7 MHz band)
was allocated in all Regions to the FS and HFBC on a co-primary basis and to the land mobile service
(LMS) on a secondary basis. The upper half of the 7 MHz band is now allocated to the HFBC on an
exclusive basis throughout the world, except in those countries listed in RR 5.143C where the FS and the
HFBC continue to be allocated on a co-primary basis.
32.
In this section, we simplify the authority for certain types of Federal and non-Federal
stations to continue operating in eight HFBC bands in a manner that does not affect the ability of the
general public in the United States to directly receive programming from international broadcast stations
(NIB operations).68 Specifically, we update and consolidate the NIB authority for Federal stations in the
FS to operate in 13 HF bands/sub-bands (HF NIB Bands), for Federal stations in the mobile except
aeronautical mobile route (R) service (MS except AM(R)S)69 to also operate in 4 of these bands, and for
grandfathered non-Federal stations to operate in certain of these bands.
33.
First, we note that non-Federal operations in the 13 HF NIB bands are currently
authorized in 2 U.S. footnotes US366 and US396. Specifically, US366 restricts non-Federal use of the
HF NIB Bands to stations in the FS and MS except AMS (i.e., the LMS and the MMS) that were licensed
prior to March 25, 2007. Given the existing non-Federal licensees in the HF NIB Bands that were
licensed prior to March 25, 2007, US366 consequently authorizes the following non-Federal NIB
operations: 1) MMS stations may continue operating in the bands 5.9-5.95, 13.57-13.6, 13.8-13.87, and
18.90-19.02 MHz (the 6, 13.6, 13.8, and 19 MHz bands), and in the band 7.3-7.35 MHz (i.e., the lower
half of the 7 MHz band); 2) FS and LMS stations may continue operating in the bands 7.3-7.35 MHz and
9.4-9.5 MHz (9 MHz); and 3) FS stations may continue operating in the bands 11.6-11.65, 12.05-12.1,
13.8-13.87, and 15.6-15.8 MHz (the 11, 12, 13.8, and 15 MHz bands).70 Further, US396 states that
non-Federal use of the band 7.35-7.4 MHz (i.e., the upper half of the 7 MHz band) is restricted to FS,
LMS, and MMS stations that were licensed prior to March 29, 2009, except that a small sub-band at
7.3685-7.3713 MHz, within the upper half of the 7 MHz band, was not reallocated for exclusive HFBC
use and is instead authorized for continued use by Alaska private-fixed stations.71


67 See para. 18, supra, for a description of changes we make in the International Table.
68 Specifically, NIB operations are authorized throughout two HFBC bands (7.3-7.4 and 18.9-19.02 MHz) and in
sub-bands within six other HFBC bands (i.e., 5.9-6.2, 9.4-9.9, 11.6-12.1, 13.57-13.87, 15.1-15.8, and
17.48-17.9 MHz).
69 "MS" is generally used as the abbreviation for the "mobile service," which is comprised of the aeronautical
mobile service (AMS), the LMS, and the MMS. The AMS is a mobile service between aeronautical stations and
aircraft stations, or between aircraft stations, in which survival craft stations may participate; emergency position-
indicating radiobeacon stations may also participate in this service on designated distress and emergency
frequencies. The AM(R)S a subset of the AMS is reserved for communications relating to safety and regularity
of flight, primarily along national or international air routes, and is not usually associated with Federal use.
47 C.F.R. 2.1(c).
70 See Table A1 in Appendix A.
71 Specifically, US396 states "that, in Alaska, the sub-band 7368.5-7371.3 kHz is allocated to the fixed service on an
exclusive basis for non-Federal use in accordance with 47 CFR 80.387." During our review, we found that the
assigned frequency band for this 2.8 kHz allocation is not in accordance with the definition of "assigned frequency
band" in Section 2.1, which is the "definitive...definition and shall prevail throughout the Commission's Rules."
Therefore, we correct this assigned frequency band by reflecting the frequency tolerance for Alaska fixed stations

DA 10-762

34.
Second, we note that Federal NIB operations in the 13 HF NIB Bands are currently
authorized in 3 U.S. footnotes US366, US367, and US396 and that new Federal stations may be
authorized in 10 of theses bands. Specifically, US366 authorizes Federal FS stations to operate in 10 of
the 13 HF NIB Bands, i.e., the 6, 9, 11, 12, 13.6, 13.8, 15, and 19 MHz bands, in the band 7.3-7.35 MHz
(the lower half of the 7 MHz band), and in the band 17.48-17.55 MHz (17 MHz). US366 also authorizes
Federal stations in the MS except AMS (i.e., the LMS and MMS) to operate in the 6, 13.6, and 13.8 MHz
bands, and in the lower half of the 7 MHz band.
35.
Also, US367 authorizes Federal use of 3 of the 13 HF NIB Bands (9.775-9.9, 11.65-11.7,
and 11.975-12.05 MHz). Specifically, Federal use of the band is restricted to FS stations that were
authorized as of June 12, 2003, and each grandfathered station is restricted to a total radiated power of
24 dBW. Finally, US396 authorizes Federal stations in the FS, LMS, and MMS to operate in the upper
half of the 7 MHz band.
36.
Accordingly, we combine the text of US366, US367, and US396 into a single
U.S. footnote that consolidates the authority for Federal and non-Federal stations to operate in the 13 HF
NIB Bands. Consistent with our new footnote numbering policy, we number this new U.S. footnote as
US136.72
37.
We observe that non-Federal stations in the FS, LMS, and MMS will operate on a NIB to
foreign-licensed international broadcast stations, irrespective of whether they are recognized in US136.
The focus of our action here is to better inform NTIA of non-Federal incumbent operations in the HF NIB
Bands, and thereby minimize the effort required to coordinate new Federal FS and MS except AM(R)S
stations in those bands. Therefore, because our review revealed that non-Federal LMS stations operate in
the 9 MHz band, we list this service in the consolidated text of US136 despite the fact that the 9 MHz
band was never allocated to that service.73 In addition, because our review revealed that there is no longer
any non-Federal FS or LMS stations operating in the 6 MHz band or any non-Federal FS stations
operating in the 13.8 MHz band, we revise the consolidated text in US136 by removing these unused
non-Federal allocations.74
38.
At the request of NTIA, we revise the consolidated text in US136 in order to reflect the
full range of Federal NIB assignments in the 6, 7, 13.6, and 13.8 MHz bands.75 Specifically, NTIA states
(Continued from previous page)


20 Hz which is listed in Section 80.209(a). As background, we note that Section 80.387 states that: 1) the carrier
frequency 7368.5 kHz is assignable for point-to-point simplex radiotelephone communications between private
fixed stations in Alaska; 2) the peak envelope power must not exceed 1 kW for radiotelephony; and 3) teleprinter
use is authorized. On May 18, 2010, the Commission's Universal Licensing System (ULS) listed 17 call signs for
the assigned frequency 7369.9 kHz (i.e., the assigned frequency associated with the carrier frequency 7368.5 kHz) in
Alaska (emission designator 2K80J3E). The assigned frequency bandwidth for these Alaska fixed stations is
2.84 kHz (i.e., the necessary bandwidth (2.8 kHz) plus twice the absolute value of the frequency tolerance
(2 x 20 Hz)). Thus, at the assigned frequency 7369.9 kHz, this results in the assigned frequency band
7368.48-7371.32 kHz. 47 C.F.R. 2.1, 2.106 US296, 80.209(a), and 80.387(a)-(b).
72 We number this new footnote as US136 because related RR 5.136 provides for NIB operation in the 6 MHz band.
73 See Table A1 in Appendix A.

75 Prior to the implementation of the WARC-79 HFBC allocations in the 2003 Below 28 MHz R&O, the 6, 7, 13.6,
and 13.8 MHz (together, 13 MHz) bands were allocated in the Federal Table to the: (a) FS and the MS except
AM(R)S on a primary basis; (b) the FS on a primary basis and the MS on a secondary basis; and (c) the FS on a
primary basis and the MS except AM(R)S on a secondary basis, respectively. See Amendment of Parts 2, 73, 74,

that: 1) the United States sought and obtained explicit authority in the ITU Radio Regulations (see
RR 5.136 and RR 5.151) to operate stations in the FS and MS except AM(R)S in these bands; and 2) the
United States' right to operate stations in the MS except AM(R)S in the 7 MHz band on a NIB to HFBC
is internationally recognized in ITU Radio Regulation No. 4.4. Because such operations by their nature
do not affect non-Federal stations, we conclude that this editorial revision promotes clarity by stating in
the consolidated text of US136 that Federal stations in the MS except AM(R)S currently operate in the
6, 7, 13.6, and 13.8 MHz bands and that NTIA can authorize new Federal stations in the MS except
AM(R)S in these bands.
39.
As an aid to readers, we revise the consolidated text in US136 as follows: In paragraph
(a), we reflect the Commission's previous decision to alternatively allocate a small sub-band (i.e., the
"assigned frequency band" 7368.48-7371.32 kHz) within the upper 7 MHz band for continued use by
Alaska private-fixed stations.76 In paragraph (b), we reflect the requirements that pertain to NIB use of
the HFBC bands. In paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(2), respectively, we list the restrictions that apply to
Federal stations and non-Federal stations operating in the 13 HF NIB bands. We also include a table that
lists the authorized Federal and non-Federal uses of the 13 HF NIB bands. See Appendix B,
Section 2.106, for the text of new footnote US136. Finally, we remove the text of two expired
U.S. footnotes US39477 and US39578 from Section 2.106 of the Commission's Rules.

Amateur Radio Service and International Broadcast Stations

40-meter band. Because the 7 MHz Realignment transition period has concluded, we
replace RR 5.142 (which contains an expired requirement regarding use of the band 7.1-7.2 MHz) in the
U.S. Table with a new U.S. footnote that contains only the current requirement in RR 5.142 ("The use of
the band 7.2-7.3 MHz in Region 2 by the amateur service shall not impose constraints on the broadcasting
service intended for use within Region 1 and Region 3.").79 Consequently, we number this new footnote
as US142, which places it in frequency order and links it to the related international footnote RR 5.142.
Also, in the FCC Rule Part Cross References column of the Allocation Table, we change all instances of
"Amateur (97)" to read "Amateur Radio (97)."
41.
HFBC. We also highlight that, in the Region 3 insular areas, the bands 7.2-7.3 and
7.4-7.45 MHz are alternatively allocated for use by international broadcast stations that transmit their
programming to listeners in Region 1 and Region 3 by reflecting this allocation from the Region 3 Table
(Continued from previous page)


(incorporated), 18 FCC Rcd 3423, 3429-30 13 (2003) (Below 28 MHz R&O). See also 47 C.F.R. 2.106 (2002
Edition).
76 See n.71, supra.
77 Until March 29, 2009, US394 maintained the primary FS and secondary MS allocations in the band 6.765-7 MHz.
After that date, the allocations shown in the U.S. Table (i.e., primary FS and MS except AM(R)S) became effective.
78 The International Table shows a primary allocation for the amateur service in the band 7.1-7.2 MHz in all
Regions. However, RR 5.141C provided for a co-primary broadcasting service allocation in the band 7.1-7.2 MHz
in Region 1 and Region 3 until March 29, 2009. Moreover, US395 required that, until March 29, 2009, amateur
stations transmitting in the band 7.1-7.2 MHz not impose constraints on the reception of international programming
intended for use in Region 1 or Region 3.
79 The Commission recently made non-substantive revisions to the frequency sharing requirements in
Section 97.303. With regard to the 40-meter band, the Commission renumbered paragraph (t) as paragraph (i) and
revised the text of this paragraph to read as follows: "Amateur stations transmitting in the 7.2-7.3 MHz segment
must not cause harmful interference to, and must accept interference from, international broadcast stations whose
programming is intended for use within Region 1 or Region 3." Amendment of the Amateur Service Rules to

in new US142 and by separating these bands from the larger bands 7.1-7.3 and 7.4-8.1 MHz in the
U.S. Table.80 We take this action because U.S. international broadcast stations regularly operate in these
areas and because it allows us to highlight in the FCC Rule Part Cross References column that, in the
U.S. Region 3 insular areas, the bands 7.2-7.3 and 7.4-7.45 MHz are available for licensing under Part 73,
Subpart F (i.e., international broadcast stations).81 See Appendix B for the text of US142. In addition, as
a consequence of the conclusion of the 7 MHz Realignment, we update Section 73.702(f)-(h) to reflect the
availability of spectrum for international broadcast stations.82
42.
In a related matter, we simplify the display of 14 HFBC bands in the U.S. Table by
merging adjacent bands, which differ only by footnote references, to form 6 larger bands as shown in
Table A3 in Appendix A. In the FCC Rule Part Cross References column, we replace all instances of
"Radio Broadcast (HF)(73)" with "International Broadcast Stations (73F)" in order to better highlight the
availability of the spectrum for international broadcasting use. See Appendix B for the revisions to the
U.S. Table.
3.

Preferred Frequencies for Disaster and Long Distance Communications

43.
In the Public Safety Pool Frequency Table, the use of frequencies in the band 2000 to
10,000 kHz (i.e., 2-10 MHz) is restricted to disaster communications and operational communications
circuits are expressly prohibited.83 Only the central governments of the 50 States, the District of
Columbia, and the U.S. insular areas are eligible to use this spectrum. Section 90.264, inter alia, restricts
disaster communications to those bands between 2 and 10 MHz that are allocated to the FS and LMS.84
By Public Notice, the Commission specified 28 carrier frequencies and their associated assigned
frequencies as available for use in accordance with Section 90.264 for disaster communications between
2 and 10 MHz.85


80 In Region 3, the bands 7.2-7.3 and 7.4-7.45 MHz are allocated to the broadcasting service on a primary basis. The
operation of stations in the Pacific insular areas that are located in Region 3 is generally governed by the
Region 3 Table. Where a band is indicated in a footnote of the International Table to be "allocated" to one or more
services in an area smaller than a Region, or in a particular country, this is an "alternative" allocation, i.e., an
allocation that replaces, in this area or in this country, the allocation indicated in the Table. We will use this ITU
term in the U.S. Table because its format is based on the ITU Allocation Table. A ULS search on March 6, 2008,
for the bands 7.2-7.3 and 7.4-7.45 MHz, limited to American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the
United States minor islands, revealed that there are no licenses. See 47 C.F.R. 2.104(f), 2.105(a) n.3.
81 U.S. frequency assignments in the bands 7.2-7.3 and 7.4-7.45 MHz are limited to international broadcast stations
that are located in the Pacific insular areas located in Region 3 that transmit to geographical zones and areas of
reception in Region 1 or Region 3. See 47 C.F.R. 73.702(h)(1). See Table A2 in Appendix A for the revisions to
the Allocation Table as a result of the 7 MHz Realignment.
82 See Appendix B at Section 73.702(f)-(h).
83 See the band "2000 to 10,000" kHz in Public Safety Pool Frequency Table (47 C.F.R. 90.20(c)(3)); and, in
particular, limitations 6 and 89 (47 C.F.R. 90.20(d)(6) and (89)). We note that the class of station for the disaster
frequencies is fixed, base, or mobile.
84 See 47 C.F.R. 90.264, Disaster communications between 2 and 10 MHz.
85 See Local Government Radio Service 2 to 10 MHz Frequency List, Public Notice, Memo No. 2419. The disaster
frequencies are from four Federal/non-Federal shared bands (2194-2495 and 2505-2850 kHz; 5.06-5.45 and
7.4-8.1 MHz). The Commission authorizes the use of the disaster frequencies individually (not by band, as is the
case with long distance frequencies).

Federal Communications Commission

DA 10-762

44.
The use of these 28 disaster frequencies is restricted in the Public Notice by power
(1 kW peak envelope power (PEP)), emission type (2K80J3E),86 and class of station (fixed stations may
operate on all frequencies; base and land mobile stations may also operate on the lowest 18 frequencies).
Also, although 17 of the frequencies are available without geographic, purpose, or time restrictions, the
Public Notice further restricted 11 of the disaster frequencies either by geographic scope (1 of the
"Day only" use frequencies is available only for stations that are located in the conterminous U.S.), for a
specific purpose (5 frequencies are designated as "alternate" and 5 frequencies are designated for
"interstate coordination"), or by time of day (2 frequencies are available for "Day only" use).87 We
observe that NTIA agreed to nationwide non-Federal use of the 28 disaster frequencies in 1980, and thus,
the Commission has not coordinated non-Federal use of these frequencies for approximately 28 years.88
45.
In the Industrial/Business Pool Frequency Table, the use of frequencies in the band
2000 to 25,000 kHz (i.e., 2-25 MHz) is restricted to the purposes specified in Limitation 1, which is a
cross reference to 47 CFR 90.35(c)(1), and by class of station(s) (fixed, base, or mobile).89 In addition,
Section 90.266, inter alia, restricts the use of any particular frequency between 2 and 25 MHz to those
bands that are allocated to the FS and LMS.90
46.
By Public Notice, the Commission specified 40 carrier frequencies and their associated
assigned frequencies in 6 bands (2194-2495 kHz; 3.155-3.4, 4.438-4.65, 5.005-5.45, 6.765-7, and
7.3-8.1 MHz) that are available for Part 90 long distance communications.91 (We note that the band
7.3-7.4 MHz has since been reallocated to the HFBC.92) The Public Notice specifies each frequency's
station class (fixed stations may operate on all frequencies; land mobile and base stations may also
operate on the 13 lowest frequencies; and itinerant fixed stations may also operate on the 27 highest
frequencies) and that these stations do not require coordination with NTIA as long as the transmitter
power does not exceed 1 kW PEP.93 In addition, these stations' emissions are limited to emission type


86 Although the Public Notice actually lists "2.8A3J" as the emission type, we are using the modern equivalent
emission designator "2K80J3E" in this Order.
87 See Local Government Radio Service 2 to 10 MHz Frequency List, Public Notice, Memo No. 2419.
88 Specifically, there is a coordination record for each of the disaster frequencies. Each of these coordination
records: 1) state that the assigned frequency is used in the operation of a nationwide civil disaster radio response

2) provide for the use specified in Public Notice No. 2419 throughout the United States and its insular areas (except
that in accordance with the Public Notice the frequency 7936.4 kHz is only available to stations located in the
conterminous U.S.).
89 See the band "2000 to 25,000" kHz in the Industrial/Business Pool Frequency Table (47 C.F.R. 90.35(b)(3));
and, in particular, Limitations 1 and 90 (47 C.F.R. 90.35(c)(1) and (90)).
90 See 47 C.F.R. 90.266, Long distance communications on frequencies below 25 MHz.
91 See Corrected* 2-25 MHz Frequency Bands Available for Part 90 Long Distance Communications, Public Notice,
Memo No. 4126, dated August 12, 1988. Although the Public Notice lists 10 bands as being available for use under
Section 90.266, currently, 4 of the bands (i.e., 2107-2170 kHz; 2.505-2.85, 4.75-4.995, and 5.73-5.95 MHz), do not
contain frequencies that are not coordinated with NTIA. The Public Notice instructs applicants to indicate on their
application the band(s) desired and the specific frequencies in each band needed to fulfill their requirements. It also
states that authorizations for frequencies in these bands will indicate just the frequency bands and will state that only
frequencies listed by Public Notice may be used. The Public Notice goes on to state that licensees may use only the
frequencies listed in the attached Table in accordance with the geographic, time-of-day, and type-of-use limitations
indicated; that these frequencies do not require coordination with the Federal Government; and that all other
frequencies in these bands will require coordination. Id.

2K80J3E and as specified in Section 90.266.94 Also, although 20 frequencies are available to these
stations without time or geographic restrictions, the Commission restricted the use of the remaining
20 frequencies. Specifically, the Public Notice restricts 8 frequencies by time of day (1 frequency is for
"Day only" use and 7 are for "Night only" use) and restricts 13 frequencies by geographic scope
(5 frequencies are for stations located East of 108 West Longitude (approximately the Continental
Divide), 1 frequency is for stations located West of the Mississippi River, and 7 frequencies are for
stations located West of 90 West Longitude).95
47.
We have discussed this matter with NTIA, and it is our joint conclusion that, because it
has not been necessary to revise the lists of available frequencies since 1980, we should reflect these
important and long-standing uses in the Allocation Table. Accordingly, we reflect these frequencies in
the Allocation Table by reproducing the list of 68 carrier frequencies and the restrictions on their use in a
new U.S. footnote, which we number as US22.96 We anticipate that most, if not all, non-Federal
requirements for disaster and long distance communications can be met using these channels. In sum, this
action is expected to be helpful to applicants by highlighting the availability of these frequencies and it in
no way limits the Commission's ability to coordinate the use of other frequencies in the
Federal/non-Federal shared bands with NTIA. See Appendix B for the text of US22.
4.

Power Line Carrier Systems

48.
We revise the text of US294 and a related reference in Part 90 of the Commission's Rules
in order to clearly define the band within which Power Line Carriers (PLCs) must be coordinated in order
to protect licensed stations, i.e., the band 9-490 kHz. We note that this action is consistent with
Section 15.113(b), which states that: "The signals from this [PLC] operation shall be contained within the
frequency band 9 kHz to 490 kHz."97 We also update a cross reference in Part 15 of the Commission's
Rules. Specifically, we revise: 1) US294 by replacing the phrases "spectrum below 490 kHz" and "bands
below 490 kHz" with the phrase "band 9-490 kHz" and by updating the PLC cross reference to the NTIA
Manual
from Chapter 7 to Chapter 8; 2) Section 90.35(g) by replacing the phrase "10-490 kHz" in the
first sentence with the phrase "9-490 kHz;" and 3) Sections 15.5(a) and 15.113(a) by updating the cross
reference from " 90.63(g)" to " 90.35(g)." Because we revise US294, we renumber this footnote in
frequency order as US2. See Appendix B for the revised text of US2.
5.

Forest Product Frequencies

49.
We clarify and update US298 by changing "Channels 27555 kHz, 27615 kHz,
27635 kHz, 27655 kHz, 27765 kHz, and 27860 kHz" to read "The assigned frequencies 27.555, 27.615,
27.635, 27.655, 27.765, and 27.860 MHz." We note that these six frequencies are listed in the
Industrial/Business Pool Frequency Table and that the use of these frequencies is restricted to base and
mobile stations that operate in accordance with Limitation 89 in Part 90, which is a reproduction of


94 See 47 C.F.R. 90.266.
95 Id.
96 Given that each assigned frequency is 1.4 kHz above the related carrier frequency, we decline to list the assigned
frequencies in US22. Instead, we simplify this new U.S. footnote by listing only the carrier frequencies and by
restricting use of these frequencies to upper sideband transmissions. Also, consistent with the Public Notice, in the
US22 table, we have added three lines to highlight the frequencies that are available in each of the six
Federal/non-Federal shared bands (2194-2495 kHz; 3.155-3.4, 4.438-4.65, 5.005-5.45, 6.765-7, and 7.4-8.1 MHz)
that are available for long distance communications. Although the frequencies for disaster communications are not
licensed by band, for ease of use, we have also added two lines to highlight the frequencies in each of the four
Federal/non-Federal shared bands (2194-2495 and 2505-2850 kHz; 5.06-5.45 and 7.4-8.1 MHz).

Updates to U.S Table and Domestic Footnotes for VHF Bands (30 to 300 MHz)

1.

Maritime Mobile Bands Display Changes

50.
At the request of NTIA, we reflect the internationally specified uses for three VHF MMS
frequencies 156.8, 161.975, and 162.025 MHz as described below.100
a.

Distress, Safety, and Calling Frequencies

51.
The pre-WRC-07 version of RR 5.226 states that the frequency 156.8 MHz is the
international distress, safety, and calling frequency for the maritime mobile VHF radiotelephone service
and that the conditions for its use are contained in Article 31.101 In addition, a 75-kilohertz band centered
on 156.8 MHz (i.e., the band 156.7625-156.8375 MHz) is allocated exclusively for this purpose in all
Regions (i.e., the normal 25-kilohertz channel bandwidth that is authorized in the MMS is protected from
harmful interference via the use of 25 kilohertz of guard-band spectrum on each side of the 25-kilohertz
channel).102
52.
In the United States, although the frequency 156.8 MHz is used in accordance with the
ITU Radio Regulations103 and RR 5.226 is currently listed in the Federal and non-Federal Tables, the
75-kilohertz band centered at 156.8 MHz is not directly shown in the U.S. Table. Instead, this allocation
is codified in US107, which reads as follows:
US107 The frequency 156.8 MHz is the national distress, safety and calling frequency for the
maritime mobile VHF radiotelephone service for use by Federal and non-Federal ship and coast
stations. Guard bands of 156.7625-156.7875 and 156.8125-156.8375 MHz are maintained.
53.
In addition, NTIA recommends that the list of internationally permitted operations (i.e.,
distress and calling communications) on 156.8 MHz be expanded by also listing urgency and safety.
Specifically, NTIA notes that, consistent with Article 53 of the ITU Radio Regulations, urgency and
safety communications are permitted in the 75-kilohertz band centered at 156.8 MHz,104 and thus, these
uses should also be listed in the parenthetical restrictions on transmissions to this MMS allocation.105


98 See 90.35(b)(3), 90.35(c)(89).
99 A May 18, 2010, ULS search showed that the Commission has not yet issued any call signs for these six
frequencies.
100 See NTIA WRC-07 Recommendations.
101 As a simplification, we do not note the expired conditions in Appendix 13 of the ITU Radio Regulations (see
n.61, supra). We do note, however, that in 1947, the ITU first designated 156.8 MHz for worldwide use for safety,
calling, and other purposes in the MMS (simplex telephony). See Radio Regulations annexed to International
Telecommunication Convention (Atlantic City, 1947) at Radio Regulation No. 198 and Nos. 830-833 at 1679 and
1887, respectively.
102 That is, there is an unused 25-kilohertz segment on each side of this maritime channel.
103 Article 52 of the ITU Radio Regulations states that the frequency 156.8 MHz is the international frequency for
distress traffic and for calling by radiotelephony when using frequencies in the authorized bands between 156 and
174 MHz. See ITU Radio Regulation No. 52.231.
104 See ITU Radio Regulation No. 53.1.
105 See NTIA WRC-07 Recommendations.

Federal Communications Commission

DA 10-762

54.
Because the 75-kilohertz band centered on 156.8 MHz has been allocated to the MMS on
a primary, exclusive, and worldwide basis for distress and calling purposes since 1979, we conclude that
further aligning the U.S. Table with the International Table would be consistent with the Commission's
established policy. A search of the Commission's licensing database showed that the 75-kilohertz band
centered on 156.8 MHz is licensed to coast and ship stations, except for stations operating under four call
signs,106 which are authorized on an unprotected and non-interference basis.107 Since the 75-kilohertz
band at 156.8 MHz is not encumbered with other allocated services, displaying that band in the U.S.
Table would be equivalent to our current footnote allocation. Thus, we find it would be appropriate to
simplify the U.S. Table by mirroring the international table. Accordingly, we reflect in the U.S. Table the
primary MMS allocation in the band 156.7625-156.8375 MHz, which is restricted to distress, urgency,
safety, and calling transmissions. See the allocation entry and parenthetical restrictions on transmissions
"MARITIME MOBILE (distress, urgency, safety and calling)" as shown in Table A4 in Appendix A and
in the U.S. Table in Appendix B. Consequently, we remove US107 from Section 2.106 of the Rules.
b.

Automatic Identification System

55.
In September, 2008, the Commission adopted "additional measures for domestic
implementation of Automatic Identification Systems (AIS), an advanced marine vessel tracking and
navigation technology that can significantly enhance our Nation's homeland security as well as maritime
safety."108 With regard to that Order, the most significant decisions were to: 1) "designate maritime
VHF Channel 87B for exclusive AIS use throughout the Nation;" and 2) "determine that only Federal
Government (Federal) entities should have authority to operate AIS base stations."109 In addition, in
accordance with the Maritime Transportation Security Act, the Commission specified that the
United States Coast Guard (USCG) regulates AIS carriage requirements for non-Federal ships.110
56.
At the request of NTIA, we highlight the two AIS frequencies 161.975 MHz (AIS 1)
and 162.025 MHz (AIS 2) by directly reflecting in the U.S. Table the MMS allocation for these
frequencies and the restrictions on their use contained in US399. In addition, we simplify and clarify
US399 by consolidating part of the grandfathering text in an introductory phrase and by adding paragraph
labeling for each of the grandfathering cases. Consistent with our new footnote numbering policy
discussed above, we also renumber US399 in frequency order as US228.111 As a result, the U.S. Table


106 On May 18, 2010, we conducted a ULS study of the 75-kilohertz band centered at 156.8 MHz and found
5,219 call signs (Regular authorization type and active status). These call signs are licensed in the Coastal Group
(MC) Radio Service, except for three call signs. Although two of these three call signs authorize operations within
the scope of this MMS allocation (WDS82 authorizes a private coast station in the Alaska Group Radio Service and
WYY2 authorizes search and rescue operations in accordance with Section 87.173), call sign WPLT721 authorizes
an unallocated use. Thus, the three mobile stations authorized under call sign WPLT721 operate on a NIB to
allocated services, and we do not consider that call sign herein.
107 The assignment of frequencies and bands of frequencies to all stations and classes of stations and the licensing
and authorizing of the use of all such frequencies between 9 kHz and 275 GHz, and the actual use of such
frequencies for radiocommunication or for any other purpose, shall be in accordance with the Allocation Table. On
the condition that harmful interference will not be caused to services operating in accordance with the Allocation
Table, certain specified exceptions may be authorized. See 47 C.F.R. 2.102(a), (b).
108 See Amendment of the Commission's Rules Regarding Maritime Automatic Identification Systems, WT Docket
No. 04-344, Second Report and Order, 23 FCC Rcd 13711 (2008) at 1 (AIS 2nd R&O); Erratum, 24 FCC Rcd 3241
(2009).
109 See AIS 2nd R&O, 23 FCC Rcd at 13712 1.
110 These requirements are codified at 33 C.F.R. 164.46, 401.20. See 47 C.F.R. 80.393.
111 We note that WRC-07 adopted RR 5.227A, which provides for satellite reception of the AIS 1 and AIS 2 bands.
Although RR 5.227A provides for satellite-only AIS reception, we conclude that US399 should be renumbered as
US228 so that this AIS-related footnote is numbered in frequency order.

and 162.0125-162.0375 MHz), in combined Federal/non-Federal cells within the U.S. Table with the entry
"MARITIME MOBILE (AIS) US228." See Appendix B for the revisions to the U.S. Table and the
revised text of US228.
2.

Radiolocation Band Display Changes

57.
In this section, we simplify and correct the display of the band 216-225 MHz in the
U.S. Table. As background, in the Region 2 Table, the band 216-225 MHz is allocated, inter alia, to the
radiolocation service (RLS) on a secondary basis and RR 5.241 further restricts the use of this allocation
to RLS stations that were authorized prior to January 1, 1990.
58.
US229. During the coordination process, NTIA advised us that, because RR 5.241
prohibits any new RLS stations from being authorized in the band 216-225 MHz, Federal RLS use of that
band is necessarily limited to those stations authorized pursuant to US229 and to air-search radars aboard
USCG vessels that transmit on 220 MHz with a necessary bandwidth of 70 kHz (i.e., these emissions
occupy the sub-band 219.965-220.035 MHz). Therefore, NTIA requests that we remove the secondary
Federal radiolocation service allocation in the bands 216-217 MHz and 220-225 MHz from the
Federal Table and that we list the 70 kilohertz band that is used by the USCG in US229.112 As a result of
removing the RLS allocation entry from the Federal Table, the Federal and non-Federal Tables are
exactly the same for the band 220-222 MHz. Accordingly, we list the allocations and footnotes in this
band once in a combined U.S. Table entry, as shown in Table A5 in Appendix A. We also update and
revise US229 for clarity, consistency, and simplicity.113 Because we revise US229, we renumber this
footnote with a number US241 that is based on the related international footnote RR 5.241. See
Appendix B for the revisions to the U.S. Table and the updated text of US241.
3.

Fixed and Land Mobile Bands Display Changes

59.
US335. In order to improve the readability of US335, which sub-divides the band
220-222 MHz into seven paired bands (one Federal exclusive band, four non-Federal exclusive bands,
and two shared bands), we place the bands in a table, list the bands in frequency order, and add four
headings (Use, Base Transmit, Mobile Transmit, and Channel Nos.). We also reproduce certain
information from Sections 90.715, 90.720, and 90.719 in new paragraphs (a), (c), and (d), respectively, in
order to provide a basic understanding of the national plan for 220 MHz and to make it clear that the use
of 10 shared channels (Channels 161-170) is restricted to public safety/mutual aid communications and
that the use of 5 shared channels (Channels 181-185) is restricted to emergency medical
communications.114 In addition, we move the existing provision in US335 for temporary fixed


112 The USCG is authorized to operate mobile stations in the radiolocation service that transmit on 220 MHz using a
necessary bandwidth of 70 kilohertz in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, i.e., USCG vessels may operate air-search
radars in the sub-band 219.965-220.035 MHz. As such, this Order necessarily must correct an error that occurred in
the Third Table Clean-up Order. Specifically, in that action, we inadvertently deleted half of the necessary
bandwidth for this USCG system from the Allocation Table. Accordingly, we restore the secondary Federal
radiolocation service allocation in the sub-band 220-220.035 MHz in this Order. At the request of NTIA, we revise
G2 (which restricts the use of the Federal radiolocation service in the listed bands to the military services) by
replacing the bands "216-217 MHz, 220-225 MHz" with the band "216.965-216.995 MHz."
113 At NTIA's request, we also update US241 by revising "Navy's Space Surveillance (SPASUR) radar system" to
read "the Air Force Space Surveillance System (AFSSS) radar system."
114 The second sentence in paragraph (a) in Section 90.715 reads as follows: "Frequencies shall be assigned in pairs,
with base station frequencies taken from the 220-221 MHz band with corresponding mobile and control station
frequencies being 1 MHz higher and taken from the 221-222 MHz band." Section 90.720 is titled "Channels
available for public safety/mutual aid." Section 90.719 states that channels 181-185 are set aside for emergency
medical use. See 47 C.F.R. 90.715(a), 90.720(a), 90.720(c).

Updates to U.S. Table and Domestic Footnotes for UHF Bands (300 to 3000 MHz)

1.

Non-Federal Use of Military Radar Band 420-450 MHz

60.
In this section, we address several issues related to the band 420-450 MHz, which is
allocated to the Federal radiolocation service on a primary basis. Under G2, NTIA has restricted the use
of this allocation to the military services,115 except as provided for in US217 and G129.116 Although the
band 420-450 MHz (70-centimeter (cm) band) is allocated to the amateur service on a secondary basis,
the band 420-430 MHz is not allocated to the amateur service North of Line A.117 Amateur stations may
transmit in the 70-cm band at full power (i.e., transmitter power may not exceed 1.5 kW PEP), except in
the areas specified in US7, where transmitter power is generally restricted to 50 W PEP. NTIA has
informed us that, due to the light Federal use of the authority provided for in US217, this footnote should
be restricted to non-Federal use only.118 Specifically, NTIA determined that non-military use of the band
420-450 MHz is sufficiently infrequent that it prefers to manage this military band by accepting waivers
of G2 from non-military users. As a consequence of its decision, NTIA requests that we revise G2 by
removing the reference to US217. See Appendix B for the revised text of G2.
61.
Non-Federal Radiolocation. At the request of NTIA, we simplify US217 by restricting
its applicability to non-Federal use. In addition, in order to simplify the Rules and ensure that geographic
areas listed in this footnote are consistent with those listed in US7 (which we combine with NG135 and
renumber as US270119), we remove the geographic areas currently listed in US217 and replace them with
a cross reference to paragraph (a) of the consolidated footnote US270 discussed below. For ease of use,
we also renumber US217 as US269 so that the referenced geographic areas can be easily found in
adjacent US270.120 In order to accomplish this advantageous renumbering, we add the current text of


115 See 47 C.F.R. 2.106 FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (G) FOOTNOTES at G2.
116 G129, which authorizes wind profilers, is not at issue in this Order. See 47 C.F.R. 2.106 FEDERAL
GOVERNMENT (G) FOOTNOTES at G129.
117 See 47 C.F.R. 2.106 NON-FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (NG) FOOTNOTES at NG135.
118 Under US217, in the band 420-450 MHz, pulse-ranging radiolocation systems may be authorized for use along
the shoreline of the conterminous United States and Alaska. In the sub-band 420-435 MHz, spread spectrum
radiolocation systems may be authorized within the conterminous United States and Alaska. All stations operating
in accordance with this provision shall be secondary to stations operating in accordance with the Table of Frequency
Allocations. Authorizations shall be granted on a case-by-case basis; however, operations proposed to be located
within the following geographic areas should not expect to be accommodated: (a) Arizona, Florida, and New
Mexico; (b) those portions of California and Nevada that are South of latitude 3710' N; (c) that portion of Texas
that is West of longitude 104 W; (d) Within 322 km (200 miles) of Eglin AFB, FL (30 30' N, 86 30' W); Patrick
AFB, FL (28 21' N, 80 43' W); and the Pacific Missile Test Center, Point Mugu, CA (34 09' N, 119 11' W);
(e) within 240 km (150 miles) of Beale AFB, CA (39 08' N, 121 26' W); (f) within 200 km (124 miles) of
Goodfellow AFB, TX (31 25' N, 100 24' W) and Robins AFB, GA (32 38' N, 83 35' W); and (g) within 160 km
(100 miles) of Clear, AK (64 17' N, 149 10' W); Concrete, ND (48 43' N, 97 54' W); and Otis AFB, MA
(41 45' N, 70 32' W).
119 See para. 62, infra.
120 During our review of the non-Federal operations in the band 420-450 MHz, we found that the radiolocation and
amateur footnote numbers could be based on the footnote numbers of RR 5.269 and RR 5.270, respectively. Such a
renumbering would place these footnotes in frequency order, would permit us to simplify the radiolocation footnote
by not listing the geographic sites, and would make it easier for readers of US269 to find the site list in the adjacent
footnote US270.

See Appendix B for the text of US269 and US385.
62.
70-cm Amateur Radio Service Band. In order to consolidate all of the restrictions on
amateur radio service operations in the band 420-450 MHz in one footnote, we combine the text from
US7 and NG135 into a single U.S. footnote, which we number as US270. We choose to number the
consolidated footnote as US270 because RR 5.270 contains the secondary amateur service allocation for
the bands 420-430 and 440-450 MHz in the United States and three other countries. See Section 2.106 in
Appendix B for the text of US270.

Two-Way Air-Ground Public Radiotelephone Service

63.
In preparing this Order, we discovered that the reference to NG12 in the band
456-460 MHz is missing from the non-Federal Table.122 Therefore, we take this opportunity to correct
this omission by reinserting the reference to NG12 in the band 456-460 MHz in the non-Federal Table.
See Appendix B for this correction to the non-Federal Table.
3.

MED Channels

64.
Medical Radiocommunication Systems. In order to properly reflect the channeling plan
used by medical radiocommunication systems, which consists of 40 channel pairs and is codified in
paragraphs (d)(65) and (d)(66) of Section 90.20 (commonly known as the MED channels), we revise
US216 by adjusting the bandwidths of the two bands that are specified for use by medical
radiocommunication systems.123 Specifically, we replace the bands 462.94688-463.19688 MHz and
467.94688-468.19688 MHz in US216 with the bands 462.94-463.19675 MHz and
467.94-468.19675 MHz, respectively.124 Thus, we renumber US216 as US73. See Section 2.106 in
Appendix B for the revised text of US73.


121 We find this consolidation to be appropriate because, by definition, the secondary radio astronomy service
allocation, which is directly listed in the band 2655-2690 MHz,"[c]annot claim protection from harmful interference
from stations of a primary service to which frequencies are already assigned or may be assigned at a later date." See
47 C.F.R. Section 2.105(c)(2)(ii). As a consequence of this renumbering, we also update the cross reference to
US311 contained in US74 to US385. See Appendix B for the revised text of US74.
122 NG12 reads as follows: Frequencies in the bands 454.40-455 MHz and 459.40-460 MHz may be assigned to
domestic public land and mobile stations to provide a two-way air-ground public radiotelephone service. See also
47 C.F.R. 22.805, which lists the frequencies for the general aviation air-ground service.
123 See 47 C.F.R. 90.20(d)(65)-(66).
124 These changes are based on the following facts: The lowest and highest frequencies listed for these bands are in
channel MED-9 (462.95 and 467.95 MHz) and channel MED-83 (463.19375 and 468.19375 MHz). In the Public
Safety Pool Frequency Table, Limitation 44 applies to MED-83, and thus, its frequencies are assigned an authorized
bandwidth not to exceed 6 kilohertz. Because MED-9 is not specifically limited, its frequencies are assigned an
authorized bandwidth not to exceed 20 kilohertz; see 47 C.F.R. 90.209(b)(5). Subtracting 0.01 megahertz (i.e.,
10 kilohertz, which is half the maximum authorized bandwidth for MED-9) from 462.95 and 467.95 MHz yields
462.94 and 467.94 MHz, respectively. Adding 0.003 megahertz (i.e., 3 kilohertz, which is half the maximum
authorized bandwidth for MED-83) to 463.19375 and 468.19375 MHz yields 463.19675 and 468.19675 MHz,
respectively.

Television Bands

65.
NG128 and NG142. NG128 and NG142 authorize ancillary uses of TV Channels 2-36
and 38-69. Specifically, NG128 authorizes, inter alia, TV broadcast licensees or permittees to use
subcarriers on a secondary basis for both broadcast and non-broadcast purposes. NG142 states that
TV broadcast stations may use a portion of the television vertical blanking interval for the transmission of
telecommunications signals, on the condition that harmful interference will not be caused to the reception
of primary services, and that such telecommunications services must accept any interference caused by
primary services operating in these bands. The bands 698-763, 775-793, and 805-806 MHz which are
allocated to the fixed, mobile, and broadcasting services are regulated under Part 27 and have been
auctioned for Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) use. To the extent that these Part 27 licensees
choose to implement the uses specified in NG128 and NG142, they may do so under their primary
FS allocation. Accordingly, we remove the band 698-806 MHz from NG128 and NG142. For clarity, we
also amend NG128 by revising "licensees or permittees" (three instances) to read "licensees and
permittees." Because we revise NG128 and NG142, we renumber these footnotes in frequency order as
NG5 and NG14, respectively. See Section 2.106 in Appendix B for the revised text of NG5 and NG14.

Public Safety Bands

66.
In this section, we reflect the availability of certain public safety bands in the Allocation
Table. We take this action in order to assist both non-Federal applicants and sponsored Federal agencies,
and to facilitate the rapid conclusion of the 800 MHz-band transition.
67.
Section 2.103(b) of the Commission's Rules states that Federal stations may be
authorized to use frequencies in specified 700 MHz, 800 MHz, and 4.9 GHz Bands that are allocated for
exclusive non-Federal use if the Commission finds that such use is necessary and Federal operations are
in accordance with the Commission's Rules governing the service to which the frequencies involved are
allocated.125 In 1998, the Commission concluded that Federal entities are ineligible for Commission
licensing in the 700 MHz Public Safety Band, but found that "if a state or local governmental licensee
desires for a Federal public safety entity to receive access to some or all of its licensed frequencies, the
licensee can join in the request, under the NTIA/FCC process, to authorize Federal use of its
non-government frequencies for noncommercial public safety services."126
68.
In July 2004, the Commission adopted the 800 MHz R&O, which reconfigured the
800 MHz band for private radio services that operate in the paired bands 806-824/851-869 MHz.127 In
general, the 800 MHz R&O moved a dedicated public safety band (generally known as the


125 See 47 C.F.R. 2.103, which is titled "Federal use of non-Federal frequencies."
126 In general, these assignments contain a supplementary statement ("required for cooperative law enforcement
activities"), a letter of support (new or on file), and record note "S160." The Commission's staff is then able to very
quickly process these routine applications. Because of the large number of Federal stations that still must transition
to the new band plan, we highlight the Public Safety Bands in the Allocation Table, which could then be placed in
the NTIA Manual. See The Development of Operational, Technical and Spectrum Requirements for Meeting
Federal, State and Local Public Safety Agency Communication Requirements Through the Year 2010, WT Docket
No. 96-86, First Report and Order and Third Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, 14 FCC Rcd 152, 183 at 60-69
(1998).
127 See Improving Public Safety Communications in the 800 MHz Band, WT Docket 02-55, Report and Order,
Fifth Report and Order, Fourth Memorandum Opinion and Order, and Order
, 19 FCC Rcd 14969 (2004), as amended
by Erratum, DA 04-3208, 19 FCC Rcd 19651 (2004), and Erratum, DA 04-3459, 19 FCC Rcd 21818 (2004)
(800 MHz R&O, Erratum, and Second Erratum). The Federal Register published the 800 MHz R&O on
November 22, 2004, and the rule changes took effect on January 21, 2005. See 69 Fed. Reg. 67283 (2004). See also

National Public Safety Planning Advisory Committee (NPSPAC) Band) from 821-824/866-869 MHz to
806-809/851-854 MHz; and established a contiguous block of paired spectrum for Enhanced Specialized
Mobile Radio (ESMR) use at 817-824/862-869 MHz, which the Commission licensed to Nextel (now
Sprint Nextel).
69.
Accordingly, we revise how the Part 90 cross references in the 700 MHz, NPSPAC, and
4.9 GHz bands are displayed in column six of the Allocation Table in order to reflect that the Public
Safety Land Mobile Radio Service (PSLMRS) is the specific Private Land Mobile Radio Service that is
designated to use these bands and that Part 90 specifies certain portions of these bands for PSLMRS
operations.128 In order to better assist Federal agencies, we also highlight the 700 MHz and NPSPAC
bands in the Federal Table by subdividing the band 698-890 MHz into nine smaller bands (698-763,
763-775, 775-793, 793-805, 805-806, 806-809, 809-851, 851-854, and 854-890 MHz). We decline to add
a U.S. footnote that would point to Section 2.102 at this time. See Appendix B for the updates to the
U.S. Table.
6.

U.S. Footnote Changes in the Band 1390-1432 MHz

70.
We make several changes to the bands that comprise 1390-1432 MHz. First, at the
request of NTIA, we update US351 by removing the expired authority for Federal stations to operate in
the band 1390-1400 MHz on a fully protected basis at 17 sites. In doing so, we note that the text of
updated US351and the existing text of US352 are essentially identical. Therefore, we combine the
explicit authority for Federal NIB operations to continue in the band 1390-1400 MHz (US351) and in the
band 1427-1432 MHz (US352) into a single U.S. footnote (US37). We also note that Federal agencies
may, without further authority from NTIA, purchase and operate Wireless Medical Telemetry Service
(WMTS) devices that have been certified by the Commission.129 Accordingly, we update the
parenthetical exception text to better reflect the Commission's decision that although the bands
1390-1400 and 1427-1432 MHz were transferred for non-Federal exclusive use, Federal hospitals have
access to the WMTS bands on a primary basis as end users. See Appendix B for the text of US37.
71.
In the WRC-03 Omnibus R&O, we inadvertently removed the reference to US74 from the
band 1400-1427 MHz in the U.S. Table.130 Therefore, we take this opportunity to correct this error by
reinserting the reference to US74 in the band 1400-1427 MHz.131 See Appendix B for this correction to
the U.S. Table.


128 As discussed above, the revised cross references for the 700 MHz, NPSPAC, and 4.9 GHz bands are shown
below in Table 6.

130 See WRC-03 Omnibus R&O at para. 118, wherein the Commission revised US74 by adding a cross reference to
US368 and by using the term "unwanted emissions" in place of "extraband radiation." Although we correctly
implemented these revisions to US74 in the Final Rules, we inadvertently removed the reference to US74 from the
band 1400-1427 MHz. See WRC-03 Omnibus R&O, 20 FCC Rcd at 6613 118.
131 US74 currently reads as follows: In the bands 25.55-25.67, 73.0-74.6, 406.1-410.0, 608-614, 1400-1427 (see

Updates to U.S. Table and Domestic Footnotes for SHF Bands (3 to 30 GHz)

1.

GOES Footnote

72.
Because the band 7190-7235 MHz is allocated for exclusive Federal use, in support of
the Department of Commerce's Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES), NTIA
added a new Federal footnote G134 to the NTIA Manual in its September 2008 revision.132 Because
Federal footnotes denote stipulations applicable only to Federal operations, and the Federal Table is
included in the Allocation Table for informational purposes only, adding G134 to the Federal Table is a
non-substantive, editorial action. Therefore, we add G134 to the Federal Table as shown in Appendix B.
2.

Ku-Band Fixed-Satellite Service

73.
In the United States, the band 11.7-12.2 GHz is allocated to the non-Federal
fixed-satellite service (FSS) for space-to-Earth transmissions (downlinks).133 We observe that NG145 and
RR 5.485 contain the exact same text, except that RR 5.485 opens with the phrase "In Region 2,". The
Commission's Rules specify that where an international footnote is applicable, without modification, to
non-Federal operations, it is placed in the non-Federal Table.134 Accordingly, we correct the band
11.7-12.2 GHz in the non-Federal Table by replacing NG145 with RR 5.485.
74.
We also note that, in the Region 2 Table, RR 5.485 is shown at the bottom of the cell in
the bands 11.7-12.1 and 12.1-12.2 GHz. Consistent with the Commission's current display of NG145,
however, we place RR 5.485 to the right of the non-Federal FSS downlink allocation because this
international footnote provides the licensees of FSS space stations with additional flexibility, but does not
provide for a separate allocation, i.e., we would not authorize a space station in the broadcasting-satellite
service under this international footnote. Also, consistent with the Region 2 Table, we correct a display
error by moving the reference to 5.488 from the bottom of the cell in the band 11.7-12.2 GHz to the right
of the non-Federal FSS downlink allocation.

Updates to Other Rule Sections

1.

Adding Inter-Satellite Service Bands to Part 25

75.
In this section, we make a conforming modification to the Commission's Part 25 satellite
Rules. On December 19, 2000, the Commission realigned the allocations in the bands 50.2-50.4 and
51.4-71 GHz.135 As part of this realignment, the Commission provided separate inter-satellite service
(ISS) allocations for Federal agencies and for non-Federal (commercial) licensees by allocating the band
65-71 GHz to the non-Federal ISS, deleting the non-Federal ISS allocation from the bands 56.9-57 and

level which would be present if the offending station were operating in compliance with the technical standards or
criteria applicable to the service in which it operates. Radio astronomy observations in these bands are performed at
the locations listed in US311. As noted above in n.121, however, as a consequence of our renumbering US311 to
US385, we update the cross reference to US311 in US74 to US385. See Appendix B for the revised text of US74.
132 See 2008 NTIA Manual at 4-162. See also letter from the Associate Administrator, Office of Spectrum
Management, NTIA to Chief, OET, received July 21, 2008, advising the Commission of this addition.
133 The term "Ku-band" is generally used by the satellite industry to refer to spectrum in the 12-18 GHz range. The
band 11.7-12.2 GHz (space-to-Earth) is paired with the band 14-14.5 GHz (Earth-to-space).
134 See 47 C.F.R. 2.105(d)(5)(i).
135 See Amendment of Part 2 of the Commission's Rules to Allocate Spectrum to the Inter-Satellite, Fixed, and
Mobile Services and to Permit Unlicensed Devices to Use Certain Segments in the 50.2-50.4 GHz and
51.4-71.0 GHz Bands, ET Docket No. 99-261, Report and Order, 15 FCC Rcd 25264 (2001) (ISS R&O).

59-64 GHz, and allocating the band 64-65 GHz to the Federal ISS.136 The remaining ISS allocations in this
frequency range (54.25-56.9 and 57-58.2 GHz) are available for both Federal and non-Federal use. We note
that the Commission adopted this plan at the request of NTIA,137 industry commenters supported the plan,
and that Sections 25.202(b) and 25.279 of the Commission's Rules already permit the use of these ISS
allocations.138 Accordingly, we add the bands 54.25-56.9, 57-58.2, and 65-71 GHz to the list of available ISS
frequencies set forth in Section 25.202(a)(5) to conform to the Commission's 2000 decision. Consequently,
we also add a cross reference to these Rules in the FCC Rule Part Cross References portion of the Allocation
Table, i.e., "Satellite Communications (25)."
2.

Revisions of Parts 1 and 2

76.
We revise Sections 1.924(b)(3) and (e)(1), 2.1(c), 2.100, 2.101(b), 2.104(c)(2), and
2.201(b).139 In addition, we make various other minor revisions to Section 2.106. These revisions are
generally for footnote placement, simplification, consistency, or updating purposes.140 In addition, on
January 12, 2010, NTIA informed the Commission that G124 had been deleted from the NTIA Manual
and requested that the Commission update its Allocation Table to reflect this action.141 As requested, we
remove the reference to G124 from Section 2.106 in this Order. We also correct a typographical error in
US378. Specifically, in the middle of the table in US378, above the bottom seven listed locations, we
insert the heading "50 km radius of operation centered on:." These revisions are shown in Appendix B.
We show updated cross references in the FCC Rule Part Cross References in Table A6 in Appendix A
and in the Allocation Table in Appendix B.

IV.

ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURE ACT REQUIREMENTS

77.
We amend Parts 1, 2, 15, 25, 73, and 90 of the Commission's Rules herein by
incorporating non-substantive, editorial revisions only. Therefore, there is good cause for not employing
the notice and comment procedure in this case, and for making the effective date of these amendments the
date of publication in the Federal Register. Specifically, we find that the normal procedures for notice
and comment and for publication as required under Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act
would be impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B);
Kessler v. FCC, 326 F.2d 673 (D.C. Cir. 1963).


136 Id. at 25265 2. ISS is a radiocommunication service providing links between satellites. See 47 C.F.R. 2.1(c).
The Commission observed that the net result of the ISS allocations and deletions was an increase of 0.9 gigahertz of
spectrum for commercial ISS and 1 gigahertz of spectrum for Federal ISS. See ISS R&O, 15 FCC Rcd 25265 3.
137 See letter from Acting Associate Administrator, Office of Spectrum Management, NTIA to Chief, OET, dated
May 18, 1998.
138 See 47 C.F.R. 25.202(b), 25.279.
139 Section 1.924(b)(3) is revised to update the contact information for the Table Mountain Quiet Zone.
Section 1.924(e)(1) is revised to correct a typographical error in the longitude coordinates on the West side of the
Denver, CO Area Rectangle 3. See Review of Quiet Zones Application Procedures, WT Docket No. 01-319,
19 FCC Rcd 3267 (2004) (Quiet Zone R&O). Section 2.1(c) is revised to update the definition for the term
"occupied bandwidth." Section 2.100 is revised to note that the International Table is being updated to reflect the
2008 Edition of the ITU Radio Regulations. Section 2.104(c)(2) is revised to update the definition of the European
Broadcasting Area. Section 2.201(b) is revised to comport with the ITU Radio Regulations. See ITU Radio
Regulations
Appendix 1 (Rev.WRC-07) 5.
140 In US117(a)(3), we also update the contact information for the Table Mountain Quiet Zone.
