NPSTC: Urgent Questionnaire on T-Band Frequency Usage by Public Safety Agencies

The National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) recently established a special Working Group to study this issue and to prepare a report on the impact this law will have on our law enforcement, fire/rescue, and EMS agencies, as well as on other public safety users.
