The preponderence of NexTel channels are in the private land mobile 806-821/850-865 conventional / trunking band, and a small percentage in the 902-906 trunking band. So I believe whatever '900' channels they have are *below* the 900 ISM band. I am most likely off on the numeric band limits. But there are IIRC 15MHz of 25KHz channels that they hold licenses among at 800 (and the separate reverse channels 45MHz higher), and only 4MHz of 12.5KHz channels at 900 (including both T&R, but I don't recall the T/R split there).

Before everyone gets in an uproar about this, has anyone looked in to the
actual frequencies being used? I'm pretty sure Nextel has some licensed 900
MHz spectrum. I don't have time to dig around for the information but as I
recall they do. I could be wrong. They certainly won't deploy an IDEN system
in the unlicensed bands............Come on. They might however cause
interference with unlicensed stuff in certain situations where you might be
co-located on the same sites. From what I have read I think this is only
going to be in selected East Coast cities anyway, and it's a band aid
approach to the rebanding process.



Thank You,

I am not familiar with the terms you describe below and I am a bit
confused. Can you break this down with a little more detail and
explanation? I would like to understand this as I think it is very
important for us to know what they are trying to do here in 900 MHz.
Thank you,
John Scrivner

Nextel has been buying up 900 MHz trunked systems for years now.
Probably will do what they did to build their first ESMR (Nextel IDEN)-
Take perfectly good systems off the air so they can drive the users to an
unneeded tcchnology.

I think this is definately something we need the answer to (What part of
900Mhz). What exactly is "Green Space"?

They don't say exact freq's except for the reference to "unlicensed"...
