Article Comments  38

Nextel yesterday made a new proposal to the FCC to resolve interference with public safety communications. The proposal involves Nextel paying TV broadcasters about $512 million to relocate broadcast auxiliary services from the 1900 MHz band to the 2100 MHz band. The spectrum involved is used for news gathering, such as live video feeds from on-location reporters. The move would clear that part of the 1900 MHz band for Nextel to use for its cellular phone service. The proposal is endorsed by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the Association for Maximum Service Television (MSTV).
