§ 90.1213 Band plan.

(a) The following channel center frequencies are permitted to be aggregated for channel bandwidths of 5, 10, 15 or 20 MHz as described in paragraph (b) of this section. Channel numbers 1 through 5 and 14 through 18 are 1 MHz bandwidth channels, and channel numbers 6 through 13 are 5 MHz bandwidth channels.

4940.5 1 1
4941.5 1 2
4942.5 1 3
4943.5 1 4
4944.5 1 5
4947.5 5 6
4952.5 5 7
4957.5 5 8
4962.5 5 9

4986.5 1 15
4987.5 1 16
4988.5 1 17
4989.5 1 18

(b) The following tables list center frequencies to be licensed for aggregated channels only. A license may contain any combination of bandwidths from aggregated channels provided that the bandwidths do not overlap. The bandwidth edges (lower and upper frequencies) are provided to aid in planning.

(1) 5 MHz bandwidth aggregation:

4982.5 13 4980 4985
4987.5 14 to 18 * 4985 4990

* Licensees should avoid using these channels in aggregations unless all other channels are blocked.

4980 12 & 13 4975 4985
4985 13 to 18 * 4980 4990
