Pre-Coordination Frequency Search

One of the steps required to design a radio system is determining the frequency band, range, and even specific frequencies available prior to committing further resources or expenditures. APCO is able to run searches outside of the coordination process to help. We are glad to assist in determining the availability of suitable spectrum before you make extensive commitments. APCO cannot reserve, hold, or otherwise guarantee any resulting frequencies identified by a search process.

Knowledge of the availability of appropriate spectrum (or lack there of) for any system may be a major decision point in the progress of any radio system. A Range Search is useful in determining the general and specific availability of any spectrum. Subsequent detailed studies of specific frequencies further refine the process allowing for potential interference analysis and frequency compatibility. Site searches will help determine potentials for interference and compatibility and are especially useful in determining sources of actual or potential interference.

PRE-COORDINATION SERVICES AND FEES
Range Search $125 per site, per band, per report. One site plus choice of band: Low Band (30-70 MHz), VHF (150-174 MHz), UHF (450-470 MHz), T-Band (470-512 MHz), 800 MHz GC & NPSPAC bands (851-863 MHz); for user-specified distance (up to 250 miles) and location (lat/long). User may specify reduced range within the band. Range search shows only frequencies and distances from the proposed site. No analysis is included.
Single Frequency Search $100 per frequency/site report. Includes co-channel and adjacent channel information out to user-specified distance (up to 250 miles) and location (lat/long). Does not include detailed interference analysis of any potential interference issues. Used to verify a frequency provided by client or further analysis resulting from range search.
Combination $150 per frequency/site report. Range search and a “best” single frequency search (see above item descriptions) and interference analysis (See Interference below).
Feasibility Study $250 per frequency, per site. Search and identify possible channel availability for Low Band (30-70 MHz), VHF (150-174 MHz), UHF (450-470 MHz), T-Band (470-512 MHz) & 800 MHz GC bands (854-863 MHz). Includes co-channel and adjacent channel information for user-specified distance (up to 250 miles) and location (lat/long). Includes detailed interference analysis of any potential interference issues.
