Spectrum changes
 
The FCC has voted to allocate spectrum from 2310 to 2360 MHz for
satellite digital audio radio services (DARS).
 
This band is part of spectrum from 2300 to 2450 MHz, all of which is
currently allocated to the Amateur and Amateur Satellite Services in
International Telecommunication Union Region 2, on a secondary
basis, with the exception of 2310 to 2390 MHz, which is not
allocated to amateurs.
 
The FCC said the new DARS would allow direct satellite-to-ground
radio to areas of the country and to minority and ethnic groups that
are inadequately served by traditional, ''terrestrial'' radio.
 
The Commission said that service and licensing rules for the new
allocation would be addressed in a later rule making.  This was
action in FCC General Docket 90-357.
