Yesterday, the FCC approved a Channel 51 transition in Bend, OR. The movement of this TV station from Channel 51 to Channel 18, will eliminate the adjacent channel interference risk to T-Mobile's 700MHz A-Block spectrum in rural Oregon. It eliminates interference concerns across 7 counties with a total population of 709,258 Below is a listing of the currently filed Channel 51 transitions. Each of the Daily Digest dates is linked to the filed information.
AllNet's Spectrum Ownership Analysis Tool has incorporated the Channel 51 interference issue into our Spectrum Grid module.
