  § 90.261   Assignment and use of the frequencies in the band 450-470 MHz for
fixed operations.

   Link to an amendment published at  83 FR 61097 , Nov. 27, 2018.

   (a) Frequencies in the 450-470 MHz band as listed in § § 90.20(c)(3) and
   90.35(b)(3) may be assigned to all eligibles for fixed use on a
   secondary basis to land mobile operations.

   (b) Fixed stations located 140 km (87 mi) or more from the center of
   any urbanized area of 600,000 or more population are limited to a
   transmitter output power of 75 watts. Fixed stations less than 140 km
   (87 mi) from the centers of these areas are limited to a transmitter
   output power of 20 watts. Urbanized areas of 600,000 or more population
   are defined in the U.S. Census of Population 1970, Vol. 1, Table 20,
   pages 1-74. The centers of the urbanized areas are determined from the
   Appendix, page 226, of the U.S. Department of Commerce publication
   “Airline Distance Between Cities in the United States.”

   (c) All fixed systems are limited to one frequency pair with 5 MHz
   spacing and must employ directional antennas with a front-to-back ratio
   of 15dB, except that omnidirectional antennas having unity gain may be
   employed by stations communicating with a minimum of three receiving
   locations encompassed in a sector of at least 160° in azimuth. Stations
   authorized for secondary fixed operations prior to July 13, 1992, may
   continue to operate under the conditions of their initial
   authorization.

   (d)-(e) [Reserved]

   (f) Secondary fixed operations pursuant to paragraph (a) of this
   section will not be authorized on the following frequencies or on
   frequencies subject to § 90.267:
