Acquiring additional spectrum

Unfortunately spectrum is finite, and additional radio spectrum in desirable frequencies can be hard to acquire. If you suspect you need additional channels, securing more operating frequencies is an important part of preparations.

  • Find out what is available/usable in your region. The best place to start is your state’s APCO frequency coordinator.
  • Consider 700 and 800 MHZ if you are frequency-constrained – it is open and widely-available in many locations.
  • UHF and VHF bands are less straightforward. The licensing processes and frequency coordination for trunking in particular, require significant effort and can be very time-consuming.
  • Partners bring more frequencies! Good planning and system sharing brings more spectrum for all.
