Federal Government Spectrum Compendium

August 21, 2017


In order to address the nation’s growing interest in and demand for radio spectrum, NTIA, in consultation with the federal agencies, has developed a compendium of detailed reports describing federal spectrum uses from 225 MHz to 7.125 GHz.

The reports and datasets available at the links below provide information for each frequency band in this range in which the Federal Government has significant operations.  In the bands depicted, the federal agencies generally have an exclusive or shared allocation in the U.S. Table of Allocations.  However, the federal agencies also operate in some bands allocated on an exclusive basis for non-federal operations in order to perform coordinated operations with non-federal entities or to use commercial services. Summary information on federal spectrum use of other bands may be found in NTIA’s Federal Spectrum Use Summary

The Federal Government Spectrum Use Reports from 225 MHz to 5 GHz are updated as of December 2015, while the 5000 - 5925 MHz bands are updated as of January 2017. The 5925-7125 MHz band is updated as of August 2017.

Information on Non-Federal Spectrum Use

Information and data on non-federal services and uses that are authorized by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is available from the FCC’s Spectrum Dashboard (from 225 MHz to 3.7 GHz) and licensing databases. However, the Spectrum Dashboard has not been updated for some time.
