Reference FM51_10
Short Name
Subject Consideration of possible usage of low power audio PMSE in the band 960-1164 MHz
Related WI SE07_28
Scope This work item is in two parts:

  1. Identify and scope out the requirements for possible compatibility and sharing studies by WG SE tobe presented to the 87th meeting of WG FM for consideration (completed).
  2. Carry out preliminary investigations on regulatory and legal issues and on the feasibility in the band by May 2018 - in a draft internal report to WG FM (completed).
  3. Further developing the report on “Preliminary investigations on regulatory and legal issues on the feasibility of introducing low power audio PMSE in the band 960-1164 MHz” (see No. 2) for completion by June 2019 (ongoing).
  4. Preparation of an ECC Report on CEPT investigations on possible usage of low power audio PMSE in the band 960-1164 MHz for approval by ECC in July 2019 (public consultation) / March 2020 (final approval) (ongoing).

Deliverable ECC Report
Responsible group WG FM - FM51

Target date 06-03-2020
Public Consultation 05-07-2019
Regular Work Item False
Comments WGFM#88 in May 2017 agreed to request WGSE to conduct studies on the requirements for sharing and compatibility studies between low power audio PMSE and aeronautical services in the band 960 to 1164 MHz,  The liaison statement is accompanied by supporting background information as prepared by PT FM51. 

ECC intends to adopt in March 2020 (PC in July 2019) an ECC Report on CEPT investigations on possible usage of low power audio PMSE in the band 960-1164 MHz. The main body should be prepared by WGFM and should aim to be rather short,including general frequency management considerations. The deliverables from FM and SE should be included as annexes as follows:

- The deliverable prepared by WGSE on the technical studies relating to sharing of low power audio PMSE (excluding airborne use) with aeronautical applications in the frequency band 960-1164 MHz, to be provided to WG FM at its meeting in June 2019. If there is no consensus on the technical analysis, the report will include all technical analyses under discussion. In this case, the conclusion will be limited to presenting the differences between each analysis from a technical perspective.

- The deliverable prepared by WG FM further developing the report on “Preliminary investigations on regulatory and legal issues on the feasibility of introducing low power audio PMSE in the band 960-1164 MHz” for completion by June 2019.
