Identification of Alternate Bands, Response to Title III of The Balanced Budget Act of 1997

Report ID
NTIA 98-39
November 01, 1998

The National Table of Frequency Allocations allocate the 2025-2110 MHz band to Federal space science services and the entire 1990-2110 MHz band to the non-Federal government fixed and mobile communication services. The Federal space science services provide the tracking, telemetry, and command (TT&C) functions for near-Earth and geostationary-satellite network operated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The transmissions made to these satellites both from the surface of the Earth and from NASA’s Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS) in the 2025-2110 MHz band are essential to the success of the scientific and manned space programs.
