Spectrum Resource Assessment in the 1710-1850 MHz Band

Gerald F. Hurt; Gordon A. Crandall III

Abstract: This report describes the spectrum resource assessment of the 1710–1850 MHz band. The Phase I Report [Hurt and Crandall, 1980] provided information on frequency allocations, technical standards, spectrum usage, and identification of key spectrum management issues. The key problem areas identified were the sharing between fixed and aeronautical mobile services, coordination of earth stations, accommodation of the Packet Radio System and congestion of–certain geographic areas in the Continental U.S. This report examines these potential problems and identifies improvements to the current spectrum management process to assure the efficient use of the limited available spectrum.

Keywords: spectrum resource assessment; fixed service (FS); space ground link; subsystem; packet radio system; spectrum management; 1710-1850 MHz band; radio frequency interference (RFI)
