REC replies to a Petition for a Notice of Inquiry for a Community Broadcast Band.
REC has filed comments partially supporting a Petition by the Community Broadcast Band Discussion Group to initatite a Notice of Inquiry into new spectrum for a Community Broadcast Band.
In our comments, we supported the overall concept of a CBB. However we are supporting CBB using more established technologies including our previously proposed Narrowband Community Speech Radio Service (NCSRS) at 26 MHz.
We have also opened the petition to discussion of the NPR-endorsed expansion of the FM broadcast band to include the spectrum of the underutilized TV Channel 6.
