Notice No. DGTP-001-04 - Spectrum Provisions for Introducing Licence-Exempt Radios in the Land Mobile Frequency Sub-bands 462/467 MHz

The purpose of this Notice is to announce the release of a spectrum policy that outlines the Department's intention and process to permit the operation of General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) radios in Canada as early as September 2004. These radios will be permitted on a licence-exempt basis in a designated set of frequencies in the frequency range 462/467 MHz. As part of this spectrum policy, the Department has established a process to notify and deal with certain incumbent land mobile licensees in the frequencies designated for GMRS before these radios are certified for sale in Canada.
