Low Power Radio Service (LPRS)


Band Plan

260 LPRS channels are available on a shared basis only and will not be assigned for the exclusive use of any entity. Certain channels (19, 20, 50, and 151-160) are reserved for law enforcement tracking purposes. Further, AMTS-related transmissions are limited to the upper portion of the band (216.750-217.000 MHz band). Users must cooperate in the selection and use of channels in order to reduce interference and make the most effective use of the authorized facilities.
Channels must be selected in an effort to avoid interference to other LPRS transmissions. This means that if you are experiencing interference on a particular channel, you should change to another channel until you find one that is clear. Finally, operation is subject to the conditions that no harmful interference is caused to the United States Navy's SPASUR radar system (216.88-217.08 MHz) or to TV reception within the Grade B contour of any TV channel 13 station or within the 68 dBu predicted contour of any low power TV or TV translator station operating on channel 13.
