Spectrum Utilization Policy for Certain Frequency Bands in the Mobile, Broadcasting and Amateur Services in the Range 30–896 MHz, Part II (SP 30–896 MHz, Part II)

This notice announces the release of a spectrum utilization policy entitled Spectrum Utilization Policy for Certain Frequency Bands in the Mobile, Broadcasting and Amateur Services in the Range 30–896 MHz, Part II (SP 30–896 MHz, Part II). This spectrum utilization policy follows the July 1993 release of a policy proposals paper entitled Proposed Spectrum Allocations and Utilization in the Range 30–960 MHz (DGTP-002-93/SMEP-011-93) and completes the public consultation process which began in 1987. This new policy, SP 30–896 MHz, Part II, deals with those bands not covered in the previously-released companion policy document SP 30–896 MHz, Part I.

Based on the assessment of public comments made during the review and internal study, the Department of Industry herewith sets the utilization policies for a number of bands in the mobile, broadcasting and amateur radio services. Some general policy guidelines are provided for the development of a re-deployment plan for mobile services in certain frequency bands in the 150 MHz and 450 MHz ranges. The Department of Industry recognizes the critical need to proceed with a plan to ensure the availability of sufficient mobile spectrum below 1 GHz through the turn of the century. Also the document entitled Revision to the Canadian Table of Frequency Allocations (1994) announced in Gazette Notice DGTP-005-94, adopted certain allocation changes in the 30–896 MHz range.
