equipment operating with a channel bandwidth of 12.5 kHz also be capable of operating with a channel
bandwidth of 6.25 kHz.34
13. It would be impractical to regulate equipment at the certification stage based on whether
the equipment will be used by Industrial/Business or Public Safety licensees. Moreover, the
narrowbanding rules have consistently been applied in the same manner to both groups of licensees.35
Consequently, this waiver applies to certification of all PLMR equipment in the 150-174 MHz and 421-
512 MHz bands regardless of end user-licensee.
14. Conclusion. We grant Ritron's request to the extent that we waive until January 1, 2015
the requirement that applications for equipment certification demonstrate 6.25 kHIz voice capability. We
deny Ritron's request for an indefinite waiver. We conclude that it would be contrary to the underlying
purpose of the Commission's narrowbanding rules to delay the implementation of the 6.25 kHz voice
capability requirement beyond the temporary waiver granted herein.
15. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED pursuant to Sections 4(i), 11, 303(g), and 303(r) of the
Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i), 161, 303(g), and 303(r), that the instant
Petition filed by Ritron, Inc. on September 21, 2012, IS GRANTED IN PART and DENIED IN PART, to
the extent set forth above.
16. This action is taken under delegated authority pursuant to Sections 0.31, 0.131, 0.191,
0.241, 0.331, and 0.392 of the Commission's Rules, 47 C.F.R. 0.31, 0.131, 0.191, 0.241, 0.331, 0.392.
