FCS Business Radio Group report
Presentation to the Ofcom BRIG
6 July 2007
Follow up to presentation on 13 March 2007
Key areas where BR provides essential support to organisations and businesses
BR requires certain access to spectrum in future
Ofcom has the single delivery mechanism of an auction

Safety of life, business efficiency and disaster recovery must be acknowledged as a special case and Ofcom’s spectrum allocation policies recognise this
Look into a negotiated route for spectrum access for BR

Ofcom over to you.
