February 20, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced the release of
its Electromagnetic Spectrum Strategy (EMS) to increase available
spectrum in order to meet growing demand from the commercial wireless
The strategy follows the release of a memorandum issued
in 2010 by President Obama titled “Unleashing the Wireless Broadband
Revolution,” which requires 500 MHz of spectrum be made available for
commercial use by 2020.
Amateur UHF and Microwave spectrum is shared with DoD. The release of 500 MHz may result in more intensive use by the DoD of the remaining spectrum.
