Modulation Sciences Granted 2 GHz License for Testing

The FCC's Office of Engineering and Technology recently granted Modulation Sciences a license in the 2 GHz band for testing data return link equipment used in connection with ENG activities. The Modulation Sciences license covers operations in the 2025-2025.5 MHz and 2109.5-2110 MHz bands.

Additional license grants allotted between Jan. 1 to Feb. 1, 2006 include the following:

• Nextel was awarded a license to operate on TV channel 61 (752 to 758 MHz) in order to evaluate DVB-H mobile video technology for broadcasting video, audio and data to handheld devices. The license is for mobile use in Reston, Va.

• Northrop Grumman received a license to operate on 752.625 MHz "for characterizing wireless communications systems for the public safety community."

• Freescale Semiconductor was granted a license to operate in the 470 to 550 MHz band (TV channel 14 through the lower 2 MHz of TV channel 27) to demonstrate digitally transmitted video at the CES2007 in Las Vegas, Jan. 3-10, 2007.

• VSL Networks was awarded a license to operate at 14 GHz for testing mobile vehicle antennas in a 100-mile radius surrounding Braddock Heights, Md.

• Jay Rusgrove received a license for use in the 135.7 to 137.8 KHz region of the spectrum to research propagation effects, low data rate transmission and to conduct a comparison of suitable transmitting antennas with a fixed antenna at Burlington, Conn.
