800 MHz RPC

The 700 MHz Regional Planning Committee

The 700 MHz RPC was established in 2001.  In 2008 the RPC began actively working to adopt a 700 MHz band plan for public safety.  Once this plan is approved by the Federal Communication Commission, public safety entities in Oregon will be able to license frequencies in this band.  Prior to approval of the plan by the RPC and the FCC, no 700 MHz licenses can be granted.  Therefore, it is very important to the region to complete the plan as soon as possible.  The 700 MHz RPC elected officers at its meeting on November 20, 2008.

The 700 MHz Approved Band Plan

The 700 MHz band plan describes the purpose of the band, the eligible users in the region, and the process for assigning frequencies within the band to eligible licensees.  The FCC has approved the plan.
