December 01, 1999

Dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) systems have been proposed for operation at locations across the United States in the 5850- to 5925-MHz band. To establish electromagnetic compatibility between DSRC and other 5-GHz systems, it is necessary to understand current and future occupancy of this spectrum. This report summarizes results of measurements made in 5-GHz spectrum for the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) of emissions from high-power radars and a fixed satellite service (FSS) earth station.
