Abstract: As part of the overall spectrum management process, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) have developed radio regulations to help ensure that the various radio services operate compatibly in the same environment without unacceptable levels of radio frequency interference. These regulations generally focus on sharing spectrum and the interfering potential of transmitters. Less attention has been given to the regulation of receiver parameters and the associated non-cochannel interference issues.

Keywords: receiver; transmitter; radio frequency interference (RFI); non-cochannel interference
