Title 47: Telecommunication
PART 101—FIXED MICROWAVE SERVICES
Subpart J—Local Television Transmission Service


§101.809   Bandwidth and emission limitations.

(a) Stations in this service operating on frequencies in the 27.23-27.28 MHz band will be authorized to employ only amplitude modulated or frequency modulated emission for radiotelephony. The authorization to use such emissions will be construed to include authority to employ unmodulated emission only for temporary or short periods necessary for equipment testing incident to the construction and maintenance of the station.

(b) Stations in the service operating on frequencies above 940 MHz may be authorized to use amplitude modulated, frequency modulated or pulse type of emission for radiotelephony and television. In addition, the use of unmodulated emission may be authorized in appropriate cases.

(c) The maximum bandwidths which will normally be authorized for single channel operation on frequencies below 500 MHz in this service must not exceed the limits set forth below:

Type of emission Authorized bandwidth (kHz)
A3E8
F3E or (G3E)40

(d) Maximum bandwidths in the following frequency bands must not exceed the limits set forth below:

Maximum Authorized

Frequency band (MHz) Bandwidth (MHz)
3,700 to 4,200120
5,925 to 6,425130
6,425 to 6,52525
10,700 to 12,2001 240
13,200 to 13,25025
21,200 to 23,600150

1The maximum bandwidth that will be authorized for each particular frequency in this band is detailed in the appropriate frequency table in §101.147.

2As of March 1, 2005, no new LTTS operators will be licensed in the 11.7-12.2 GHz band. LTTS operators authorized prior to March 1, 2005 may continue to operate in 11.7-12.2 GHz band until their license expires; no existing LTTS licensees will be renewed in the 11.7-12.2 GHz band.

(e) The bandwidths authorized on frequencies above 500 MHz must be appropriate to the type of operation in any particular case. An application requesting such authorization must fully describe the modulation, emission, and bandwidth desired and must specify the bandwidth to be occupied.
