Frequency Allocations App for iPhone and iPod Touch
Allocations, a new iPhone and iPod touch app for radio communication professionals and enthusiasts, is now available. Containing the entire U.S. Table of Frequency Allocations, Allocations is a convenient and portable electronic reference to allocated radio services and associated regulations across the entire radio spectrum from 9 kHz to 275 GHz.
For example, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) depend on reliable access to the electromagnetic spectrum. Certain spectrum frequencies are sometimes referred to as bands and the amount of the spectrum needed to permit transmission of information is referred to as bandwidth. Allocations for the federal government, non-federal-government, and all three ITU Regions are covered. For each allocated band, the full text of all relevant footnotes is included.
A collaboration between LoveMyTech.com and UnwantedEmissions.com, Allocations is written by and for telecommunications professionals. It is useful for anyone interested in radio communications, including spectrum managers, regulators, broadcasters, consultants, attorneys, economists, engineers, amateur radio operators, and shortwave and scanner listeners. The allocation data is built-in, making Allocations fully functional offline. Customers receive free updates when the FCC publishes a revised Table of Frequency Allocations.
Allocations is available through iTunes and through the App Store on any iPhone or iPod touch. For a limited time, Allocations is priced at only $6.99.
