Band Plans

revised 04/10/10 (Deleted reference to 53.3 as RACES frequency in FCC 97.407(b)3)

revised 05/27/13 (Corrected minor typographical errors)

revised 11/25/13 (Membership voted to adopt ARRL 420-450 MHz Bandplan)

revised 12/10/13 (Corrected minor typographical error)

The following band utilization plans for the Amateur Radio Repeater sub-band, between 29 and 450 MHz are recommended in the T-MARC areas. With minor exceptions, these band plans are essentially the same as the nationally recognized band plans recommended by the ARRL. For frequencies above 900 MHz, T-MARC has not adopted specific band plans. T-MARC intends to follow the ARRL Band Plans for repeater sub-bands above 900 MHz, but will alter these plans to accommodate local area conditions.

Note: The 220 MHz band plan has been revised due to the removal of he 220-222 MHZ portion of the band from the Amateur Service effective August 27,1991. The ARRL adopted the interim band plan providing for all existing users. T-MARC reviewed the revised ARRL band plan and adjacent-area band plans and adopted a band plan which is essentially the same as that of the ARRL plan with minor differences to accommodate local needs.
