AZCAR to help broadcasters with spectrum relocation

The FCC has charged Sprint Nextel and incumbent licensees in the 1.9GHz-2.1GHz range with transitioning that spectrum to new uses under a new band plan. Based in Pittsburgh, AZCAR will help broadcasters navigate the complexities of the spectrum relocation and to understand the new equipment that is currently being installed around the country.
