Donald Vasek, UTC’s director of spectrum services, was elected vice president of the Land Mobile Communications Council’s Board of Directors (LMCC) at the LMCC’s Annual Meeting. Vasek previously served on the LMCC board as a director-at-large and as secretary/treasurer.

Additionally, the LMCC formed a TV-band task force to decide how to handle the upcoming transition/clearing of the 470-512 MHz shared TV band, necessitated by the blanket narrowbanding waiver and freeze in that band. Klaus Bender, UTC’s senior director of standards and engineering, will serve on the task force.
