FCC Update on Licensing

With its Report and Order in November of 2002, the FCC has authorized digital and digital/analog composite radios to operate in the 7 GHz and 13 GHz Auxiliary Broadcast bands. They have categorized the TwinStream radio as a “composite” analog radio for licensing purposes. MRC has created an emission designator based on the FCC guidelines.Prior to the recent ruling, a Form 601, Schedule I and a request for Special Temporary Authorization (STA) were required. 

Now, the FCC 601 Form and Schedule I are the only documents needed for licensing.
