Spectrum Management (What & Why?) Spectrum Supportability Process Frequency Authorization Process Software and References SPECTRUM MANAGEMENT What & Why? What is Spectrum Management? DoD Dictionary of Military and Associated terms , June 2017 Planning, Coordinating, and Managing Joint use of the Electromagnetic Spectrum through OPERATIONAL, ENGINEERING, and ADMINISTRATIVE procedures (Joint Pub) JP 6-01 Why Spectrum Management?

To effectively and efficiently manage DoDs use of the spectrum during the frequency allocation, allotment and assignment processes An assignment is the AUTHORITY to use a radio frequency (aka license, RFA) Provides direct operational support to electromagnetic battlespace planning, de-confliction and spectrum interference resolution Spectrum Hierarchy

As of : 9/6/17 The Radio Spectrum Band Reallocation M1755-M1850 SPECTRUM SUPPORTABILITY Spectrum Supportability Spectrum Supportability is defined as the assessment as to whether the electromagnetic spectrum necessary to support equipment is available for use by the system. The assessment requires, at a minimum, receipt of equipment spectrum certification, reasonable assurance of the availability of sufficient frequencies for operation from host nations, and a consideration of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). Guidance for these requirements is found in DoDI 4650.01.

WHY?? To provide warfighters with spectrum-dependent equipment able to operate in its intended environment, Without spectrum related limitations (power, bandwidth, location, etc.) Without suffering (or causing) harmful interference or disastrous interactions with the electromagnetic environment; and With systems used by our Allies and Coalition Partners Spectrum Supportability Process CONTRACTOR (Generate DD Form 1494) MCEB ESG PWG (Comment)

DD Form 1494 The DD Form 1494, a document that captures an exhaustive variety of technical data, serves two functions: (1) Provides a uniform method to capture the basic spectrumdependent and operational parameters of military spectrumdependent systems in a format that can be easily provided to US National and host nation spectrum authorities; and (2) Standardizes the format of the technical data required to be inserted into DoD and national databases to generate frequency assignment approvals enabling initial EMC analyses, and checks for compliance to military, US national, and host nation spectrum standards. System developers will complete and obtain approval for a DD Form 1494 during each phase of the acquisition process for each newly developed spectrum-dependent system.

AFAUX/CAP VHF REPEATER

VHF Frequency Utilization. CAP radio operators may make maximum use of authorized channels on a first-come, non-interference basis. Nets may be scheduled on appropriatefrequenciesIAWparagraph7.4.Regardless of the circumstances, all use of CAP channels must be for legitimate business of Civil Air Patrol. VHF-FM Assignments. CAPs VHF-FM frequency assignments are on a nationwide (United States & possessions) basis, with some exceptions in border zones. In order to facilitate inter-and intra-operability when CAP personnel deploy across wing or region boundaries, CAP uses a mandatory national VHF-FM programming and channelization plan. VHF NETS 543 Regional locations 1082 frequency assignments, Equipment Quantar repeater, APX-6000 LMR, JOH-5300 Base CAP repeaters were changed from a single LMR net to a radius assignment which now covers all the radios in the net which includes Fixed, Mobile and handheld radios with a radius from the transmitting location..

Emergency locator transmitter (ELT) training utilizes M121.775 and can not be used for exercises or training FAAHQ has approved this frequency for ELT test. When possible local flight service stations will be notified when in use. Frequency supports tasking in the joint pub 3-50 (COMDTINSTM16120.5A). Transportable transmitters used during SAR training to emit signal simulating downed aircraft. CAP uses the RCVRS and direction finding techniques to locate transmitters. Frequency. 121.775 MHz only, 8 LSB assignments. Equipment CADET-6000 Modulation Requirements. 3K20A3X or 3K20A3N emission (wavering tone). Practice beacon frequencies shall not be used for voice transmission by CAP. Type Acceptance. Practice beacons must be FCC type accepted or conform to the parameters of J/F-12 Number 7192 for Pointer Cadet 6000 practice beacon. FAA Notification. Where possible, CAP units should provide advance notification of intended use of practice beacon transmitters on

121.775 MHz to the appropriate FAA Regional Spectrum Management Office, the FAA Flight Service Station, or the local air traffic control facility nearest the practice beacon transmitter(s) operating location(s). Notification should include: date of test, test location, geographical coordinates and a local contact (individual). This is a professional courtesy extended to the FAA to reduce any possibility of confusion. Exercise managers should make every effort to provide this advance notice whenever possible AF AF AF AF AF AF AF AF 956706 LSB VA, MD, NC, SC, DE 956710 LSB WI, MI, IL, OH, IN, KY 956714 LSB TN, AL, GA, FL 956722 LSB ND, SD, KS, NE, MN, MO, IA 956726 LSB AZ, NM, TX, OK, AR, LA 956730 LSB ID, WY, UT, CO, MT

AFAUX/CAP has national authorizations for the remaining ISR channels, however channels 10 and 11 were reallocated for other government agency use CAPR 100-1 6 APRIL 20169.10.3.ICOM 4008MISR radios are NTIA compliant for their frequencies and have full approval for CAP use, except for the channel restrictions in channeling plan. Except for the channel restriction channel 11 & 12 ISR radios are authorized for all CAP units and activities, except that they shall NOT be utilized in flight and may not conflict with other federal users. Only radios specifically manufactured for the ISR service are authorized and they will not be modified in anyway, including the addition of external antennas or amplifiers. Because these radios operate only on federal frequencies, use of ISR radios for personal communications is prohibited. 12 ISR assignments. Equipment ICOM 4008 MISR UHF radio channels 10 and 11 are not authorized for use by Civil Air.

Glider Operations CAP has been flying gliders for several years, using local established glider frequencies. CAP requires Air-Ground-Air use to coordinate from Glider to Ground Ops for landing 121.9375 MHZ 123.5875 MHZ is allocated specifically for FAA, and no other Federal use Local tower glider frequencies are only approved for air-air use Safety of Flight concerns due to required landing coordination SXXI template was created; pending operating frequency and transmit/receive locations however due to multiple locations ACC

requested 8 regional frequencies at M123.5 which have been assigned and are NIB for training. M123.5 was de-conflicted by ACC spectrum office prior to the request it is 98% clear throughout the US&P.

Spectrum certification lengthy process--minimum 12 months Spectrum certification does not grant approval to radiate-must submit frequency request BOTTOM LINE = YOU MUST HAVE A FREQUENCY LICENSE (RFA) TO OPERATE! Wizards Creed "Radio Frequency Management is done by experts who meld years of experience with a curious blend of regulations, electronics, politics, and not a little bit of larceny. They justify requirements, horse-trade, coerce, bluff, and gamble with an intuition that cannot be taught other than by long experience." Vice Admiral Jon L. Boyes
