The National Transit Institute (NTI) will be sponsoring a FREE webinar ($0 for consultants and contractors) “Narrowbanding Webinar” on October 19, 2010 from 2:00-3:30 pm (Eastern Time), and November, 4, 2010 from 5:00-6:30 pm (Eastern Time).

The webinar is intended for senior and executive management at transit agencies who need to be aware of the mandatory narrowbanding regulations and how it will affect their agency’s radio communication system.

Two way radio systems in the VHF and UHF bands are required by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to narrow their transmissions by 2013. This will require many transit agencies to replace their entire radio infrastructure and subscriber units. Agencies failing to make the transition face license revocation and possible fines. Yet, there is a tremendous amount of misinformation about what must be replaced to meet the new requirements. With only two budget cycles left, are you prepared? Hear from one of the land mobile industry’s leading lawyers on the real rules and clear up the misconceptions on narrowbanding.
