The Upside Of Two-Way Radios

As the FCC continues its efforts to increase the spectrum capacity for two-way radios, a wireless communications equipment company has released a white paper explaining the details of the narrowbanding mandate.

According to BearCom’s paper, the new initiative represents a “double-edged sword” for two-way radio users, as those who take advantage of the new initiative will become more efficient users of the technology while those who fail to make the switch by Jan. 1, 2013, could be left by the wayside.

“When the deadline passes and users are caught operating out of compliance, they risk losing their current FCC license, and reapplying can be costly and very time consuming,” BearCom wrote.

The white paper is available here.
