After the FCC Spectrum Repack this is what UHF frequency bands will still work.

Note that no BTR or HME850 can be used anymore.

With the caveat that what currently exists in those bands will have added any broadcast tv being repacked, plus there will probably be some small amount of availability in guard bands.

I was programming the A2 and C4 BTR units today and said that to myself... We are so screwed.. Gonna get lots more Freespeak II. Can the RX side of the BTR be re-tuned to 88?

BTR and hme 850 TX and RX need at least a tv channel separation and probably more.

WOW!

So I was just looking at Tv stations that are currently in use in my main market. It looks like there are more channels in the 566-698 are that need to be moved than space available under 566. This is going to get very interesting. I don't even know what to buy or sell right now.

So as far as the guard bands are those changing too? What will they be?

Some will go to VHF.  Also each DTV channel can have 6 or so standard def channels.  Those Stations in the remaining spectrum will sell off their sub carriers.  In the remaining dtv channels they can fit 96 Standard def channels.

Thank you for this, Pete -- it's very helpful.
I didn't learn much in engineering school but knew wired would always be fashionable...

BTW, I was going through my CD collection and came across this.  Is this the same Pete Erskine?

Re loss of BTR use: Note of clarification from Telex Thanks to an inquiry from David.Sturzenbecher@daktronics.com

From: Bowers Britt (ST/SAS-ID-NA) [mailto:Britt.Bowers@us.bosch.com]

In some areas of the country some portions of the 600 mhz band will be auctioned off & then there will be a repack.  Most likely to be effected are the top 30 broadcast markets but again only portions to be auctioned off
 
At the minimum the following bands should be available.  F1, F2, F3, H1, H2, H3, A1, A2, A3, B2, B3, and C3.
 
The frequency allocation / repack will not take effect until 39 months after the auction is complete and the completion date is unknown.  In the meantime, RTS created the Peace of Mind Program to cover any potential issues.
 
On any new system sales, you may purchase the Peace of Mind program (within 45 days of purchase of system)  for $500.  That automatically bumps the warranty from 3 years to 5 years and at same time provides the customer with 1 free rebanding of their system if the FCC auction/repack effects their system.  To put that in perspective, right now if you had to change both the transmit & receive boards in a BTR800 base station & 4 beltpacks (basically gutting the entire system and starting over) that would cost you $6185.
 
 Best regards,
 
Britt Bowers
