Yuma broadcasters become first to complete 2GHz BAS relocation

Sprint Nextel announced last week that Yuma, AZ, is the first market to transition its Broadcast Auxiliary Service (BAS) spectrum under the FCC-mandated 2GHz relocation. Broadcasters in the market are now operating on new digital equipment and within their new channel assignments.

The FCC’s 800MHz order requires BAS licensees, including KYMA-TV in Yuma, AZ, to relocate to new 12MHz channel assignments for digital operation between 2025MHz and 2110MHz by Sept. 7, 2007.

Sprint Nextel is responsible for reimbursing BAS licensees for the cost of relocating to comparable facilities within the 2GHz spectrum band. Sprint Nextel will use a portion of the band BAS licensees are vacating as part of the relocation project for commercial mobile radio services after BAS relocation is completed.

The move has made live shots easy and extended options for transmitting locations.
