It's probably still a little ways off since N.E. Ohio falls in the Canadian border region. While the band plans have been put out for public comment, they have not been formally adopted by the FCC yet... Once the Canadian band plans are adopted, Sprint Nextel will have to negotiate with the affected parties and figure out where to put everyone... At that point things may start to move. Here's the latest press release from the FCC:xusmarine1979 said:Anybody know any rumors when the rebanding will start for N.E. Ohio?
Don't look for anything as far as frequency changes until early next year. The FCC should be issuing their Report & Order for the Canadian border region sometime before the end of April.xusmarine1979 said:Anybody know any rumors when the rebanding will start for N.E. Ohio?
Lake & Geauga County both have frequencies in the 'lower 120' (851.0125-853.9875). These frequencies will be relocated to make room for NPSPAC systems (866.0125-868.9875) which will occupy the lower 120 after rebanding.FPO703 said:Lake County and Geauga County don't have to do anything. Thier systems are just fine.
As the Geauga County system administrator I can assure you that we are working with our vendors and the beginning steps of rebanding have already begun. We will be reprogramming all of the radios in Geauga County.FPO703 said:Lake & Geauga Counties systems are just fine. They were re-done within the past few years and they have been told that they don't need to do anything.
