Pyramid Communications Secures VHF Spectrum For SVR Users

In 2012 Pyramid Communications started efforts to obtain more spectrum for VHF SVR users.  We took on this project here at Pyramid because it was the right thing to do on behalf of the end users who struggle without mission critical communications.   

In a decision applauded by many, the FCC rules were changed.  On March 15, 2016, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) and the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) will begin accepting applications for the operation of mobile repeaters on the following 6 VHF frequencies: 173.2375, 173.2625, 173.2875, 173.3125, 173.3375, and 173.3625 MHz.
Thank you for your support and patience throughout the process.  All of us here at Pyramid are proud of what we have done here on behalf of the tens of thousands of first responders who rely on Pyramid Communications equipment every day.
What we need you to do:
  • Contact those who you know have been waiting for a VHF frequency.
  • Direct your licensing inquiries to a coordinator who is aware of the new changes.  Coordinators with experience on this topic are RadioSoft (888) 723-4695, EWA (800) 482-8280 or your local APCO coordinator. Please contact your coordinator to file now. We are limited to six frequencies in any region and only if they are available.
