(b) The 200 channels are divided into three sub-bands as follows:
Channel No. Sub-band Frequencies (MHz)
1-40 A 220.0025-220.1975/221.0025-221.1975
41-160 C 220.2025-220.7975/221.2025-221.7975
161-200 B 220.8025-220.9975/221.8025-221.9975
(c) U.S./Mexico border area.
(1) Channels 16-30, 45-60, 76-90, 106-120, 136-145, 156-165, 178-194 are available for primary use within the United States within 120 km (74.6 mi) of the Mexican border, subject to the power and antenna height conditions specified in § 90.729 and the use restrictions specified in §§ 90.717-90.721.
(2) Channels 195-200 are available to both the United States and Mexico in the border area on an unprotected basis. Use is limited to a maximum effective radiated power (ERP) of 2 watts and a maximum antenna height of 6.1 meters (20 ft) above ground.
(3) Channels allotted for primary Mexican use (1-15, 31-45, 61-75, 91-105, 121-135, 146-155, and 166-177) may be used in the border area subject to the condition that the power flux density not exceed−86 dB(W/m2) at or beyond any point on the border. Stations operating under this provision will be considered secondary and will not be granted protection from harmful interference from stations that have primary use of the frequencies.
