The former analog television Band III (174–230 MHz) will be put to new use, following a New Zealand Government review of options for allocating the frequencies.

One of the new uses will be land mobile radio services, which is allocated 10 MHz between 174 and 184 MHz.

Radio Spectrum Management has prepared a consultation document concerning the technical specifications for land mobile radio services operating in these frequencies. The document covers:

  • the licensing regime to be used;
  • the allocation mechanism;
  • allocation terms and conditions; and
  • the approach to and details of any technical specifications.

Interested parties are invited to comment on the questions raised by the consultation document and other matters related to land mobile radio services operating in 174–184 MHz.

For further information or to download the consultation document, visit 174 MHz-184 MHz: Land Mobile Radio technical consultation.

Submissions are due by Wednesday, 13 December 2017.
