Revision of Meteorological-Satellite Sites and Protection Distances
- In the revised CSMAC Working Group 1 Report (approved by the CSMAC in February 2013) on page 4, footnote 4, federal participants of WG-1 have identified a limited number of additional meteorological-satellite receive sites they believe warrant protection and stated they intend to raise the issue with NTIA.
- •The agencies identified 22 sites operating in and adjacent to the 1695-1710 MHz band, in addition to the original 18 sites considered in the Fast Track Report.
- •WG-1 has completed the analysis to compute protection distances for the new sites and consolidated sites with overlapping protection zones, reducing the number of new sites to nine for a total of 27 sites that require protection.
