Public safety and business land mobile radio systems operating on frequencies between 150-174 Mhz and 421-512Mhz must transition to 12.5 kHz spacing by January 1, 2013 or face FCC enforcement action.According to the FCC Public Notice DA 11-1189, if your system is not narrowbanded by 1/1/13 – you may be subject to appropriate enforcement action, including admonishments, license revocation, and/or monetary forfeitures of up to $16,000 for each such violation or each day of a continuing violation and up to $112,500 for any single act or failure to act.
