We cannot assign more than 5 single-channel (12.5 kHz and 25 kHz) VHF or UHF fixed links to a link operator for co-path use.
If you need more than 5 channels, use alternative point-to-point spectrum in the microwave bands. This option is better for supporting wideband or multi-channel operation.
Reasons for the assignment limit
Demand for single-channel fixed-link use continues to grow. This has led to congestion in the spectrum in some areas.
This limit on the maximum number of co-path links ensures:
- fair access to the limited amount of single-channel link spectrum
- use of the single-channel link bands meets their intended purpose
This business operating procedure continues the restriction that started with RALI FX4. RALI FX4 ended in 2012.
