ARLB111 New 2300 MHz uses

An October report by the National Telecommunications and Information
Administration (NTIA), entitled Land Mobile Spectrum Planning
Options, suggests a new use for the band 2300-2310 MHz, now
allocated to the Amateur Service on a secondary basis.  The report
states that the band has potential for new, non-Federal
radiolocation, fixed and mobile communication technologies.  The
report also notes that constraints are necessary for the protection
of NASA's Deep Space Network and Planetary Radar operations in an
adjacent band.  A table in the report describes a possible future
use of the band as Wide Area Land Mobile.

The 2300-2310 MHz band is expected to be the subject of an FCC
allocation proceeding as a follow-on to ET Docket No. 94-32, which
dealt with 2390-2400 and 2402-2417 MHz.
