Radio spectrum is a limited and complex resource, comprising hundreds of bands variously suited to dozens of purposes, and subject to thousands of pages of regulations. Both non-federal and government-managed spectrum are in high demand. Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, PLC attorneys routinely help their clients in both areas.
With regard to use of non-federal spectrum, we help clients:
We also work with the U.S. federal agencies -- primarily the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) -- for access to government-controlled spectrum. We assist federal manufacturers and service providers who must work with NTIA when offering systems to the federal government, or when proposing novel radio-based technologies, even for non-federal uses, that use spectrum having a shared federal allocation.
