Narrowbanding Moving Slowly Toward Deadline

With just six months left before a deadline to narrowband their VHF/UHF radio systems, about 40 percent of the 107,665 license holders have completed the process. But according to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), there are still 22,889 license holders—including public safety agencies—who haven’t started the process of narrowbanding their systems. The FCC set a January 1, 2013 deadline for most VHF/UHF radio systems to transition from 25 KHz bandwidth to 12.5 KHz, making more efficient use of the spectrum.
