5.1 Responses to the consultation – some questions

In response to the consultation document, particular attention is drawn to the following questions.

1In considering the band plan given in Annex C (in particular, the frequency you are currently operating on and the frequency you will have to move to), what issues would you face as a result of band alignment? The following points might assist your thinking:

the down time of your radio system during the alignment changeover period;

the availability of technicians to carry out the required changes to your system;

the availability of equipment (for short-term hire, new equipment etc);

health and safety/contractual issues; and

alternative solutions (GSM, DECT etc).

2As a site owner, dealer or manufacturer, what issues do you anticipate regarding band alignment?

3Do you have any comments on the Regulatory Impact Assessment in Annex A?


Further areas you might like to consider in your response are contained in the questions that were recently posed to users in this band – see
