Notice No. SMSE-004-99

Notice is hereby given that Industry Canada is amending the following Standard Radio System Plans (SRSP's). The amended versions are:

  1. Standard Radio System Plan 502 (SRSP-502) issue 4: Technical Requirements for Land Mobile and Fixed Radio Services Operating in the Bands 806-821/851-866 MHz and 821-824/866-869 MHz.
  2. Standard Radio System Plan 506 (SRSP-506) issue 2: Technical Requirements for Land Mobile and Fixed Radio Services Operating in the Bands 896-901 MHz and 935-940 MHz.
  3. Standard Radio System Plan 510 (SRSP-510) Issue 2: Technical Requirements for Personal Communications Services in the Bands 1850-1910 MHz and 1930-1990 MHz.

The changes in SRSP-502, Issue 4 and SRSP-506, Issue 2 reflect current engineering practices in channel loading calculations and determination of the co-channel separation distance. In addition, these documents were also modified editorially to improve clarity.

The SRSP-510, Issue 2, replaces the SRSP-510, Issue 1, which was published November 1997 via Gazette Notice SMSE-007-97. Issue 2 provides additional information on the use of PCS spectrum for the operation of low power subscriber device. Such devices must be under the control of a PCS service provider for operation within licensed blocks; must maintain the integrity of the public PCS service; and must have equipment certified in accordance with the appropriate Radio Standards Specification. In addition, some editorial changes were made to the text pursuant to consultation with the Radio Advisory Board of Canada.

The revised issues have been coordinated with the Radio Advisory Board of Canada (RABC)

The above SRSP's are available electronically via the Internet as follows:
