The SRA includes a description of the current Federal Government spectrum use of the 1710–1850 MHz and 2200–2290 MHz bands and an estimate of the Federal Government investment in these bands. Specifically, the SRA provides updated information on allocations, technical standards, frequency assignments, channeling plans, and spectrum usage of the 1710–1850 MHz and 2200–2290 MHz bands. It also includes updated information on major systems currently operating or planned for operation in these bands and their technical or operational characteristics.
