The Federal Communications Commission's Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau has announced a workshop on VHF/UHF narrowbanding to assist licensees in completing the transition to narrowband radio communications in time for the Jan. 1, 2013, deadline. The meeting will be held on Jan. 26, 2011, from 1–4:30 p.m..

The workshop will provide public-safety and industrial/business licensees with information regarding the narrowbanding transition path, and will include input from federal agencies, equipment manufacturers, and public-safety organizations to help ensure timely compliance with the deadline across the nation. The FCC will release a complete agenda closer to the event date.

Interested parties should pre-register by Jan. 24. Contact Deandrea Wilson at or 202-418-0703.
