§ 90.214 Transient frequency behavior.
Transmitters designed to operate in the 150-174 MHz and 421-512 MHz
frequency bands must maintain transient frequencies within the maximum
frequency difference limits during the time intervals indicated:
Time intervals^1 2 Maximum
difference^3 All equipment
150 to 174 MHz 421 to 512 MHz
Transient Frequency Behavior for Equipment Designed to Operate on 25
t1^4 ±25.0 kHz 5.0 ms 10.0 ms
t2 ±12.5 kHz 20.0 ms 25.0 ms
t3^4 ±25.0 kHz 5.0 ms 10.0 ms
Transient Frequency Behavior for Equipment Designed to Operate on 12.5
t1^4 ±12.5 kHz 5.0 ms 10.0 ms
t2 ±6.25 kHz 20.0 ms 25.0 ms
t3^4 ±12.5 kHz 5.0 ms 10.0 ms
Transient Frequency Behavior for Equipment Designed to Operate on 6.25
t1^4 ±6.25 kHz 5.0 ms 10.0 ms
t2 ±3.125 kHz 20.0 ms 25.0 ms
t3^4 ±6.25 kHz 5.0 ms 10.0 ms
^1on is the instant when a 1 kHz test signal is completely suppressed,
including any capture time due to phasing.
t1 is the time period immediately following ton.
t2 is the time period immediately following t1.
t3 is the time period from the instant when the transmitter is turned
off until toff.
toff is the instant when the 1 kHz test signal starts to rise.
^2 During the time from the end of t2 to the beginning of t3, the
frequency difference must not exceed the limits specified in § 90.213.
^3 Difference between the actual transmitter frequency and the assigned
^4 If the transmitter carrier output power rating is 6 watts or less,
the frequency difference during this time period may exceed the maximum
frequency difference for this time period.
