The National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) has submitted comments to the FCC on the Commission’s proposal to build a nationwide public safety radio network, saying the 12 MHz of spectrum carved out by the FCC isn’t enough spectrum to support all of the voice, data and other needs that agencies now need. NPSTC is federation of a wide range of organizations with some connection to public safety and radio. The group said it supports the Cyren Call proposal, which calls for 30 MHz in additional spectrum of a nationwide radio system. Download (pdf) the NPSTC comments here.E-mail this story
